Kazungula Bridge – Botswana and Zambia

Exciting news!  The Kazungula Bridge is due for completion in December 2020.  Gone will be the days of depending on a pontoon ferry to cross the Zambezi River that runs between Botswana and Zambia will be a thing of the past.

The 923m long bridge will incorporate One-Stop-Border facilities where Zambia and Botswana Immigration and customs authorities will exercise control under one roof on both sides of the border.

In terms of safaris and tours, the bridge will be a game-changer. It will replace the ferry, which has, in recent years, become overwhelmed by the traffic and deteriorated. It will make it easier for those crossing from Livingstone for Chobe National Park trips or onward journeys for multi-country safaris and tours within Southern Africa.  Hopefully not more lengthy border crossings!
