Kasane to VicFalls Zimbabwe with 4x4 rental

I need a straight, direct answer from someone please: we are in Senyati Safari Camp near the Zimbabwe border post end Aug 2015. Afterwards, we want to enter Zimbabwe with our 4x4 Rental Car (Windhoek numberplate) and stay in VicFalls for 2 nights. I get very different feedback from "its very expensive, pre book your accommodation in VicFalls otherwise you pay more to enter, rather use a transfer" etc. We do have our rental cars, why not go with them? and nobody tell me what the costs are to enter Zim and the procedures......exactly! Certainly there is a STANDARD! Anybody who passed this road recently in the same circumstances, please tell me what to do! And what NOT to do!

I believe the fees below are up-to-date. However. it will save you money if you arrange with Senyati to leave your vehicle in their camp and take a transfer to Vic Falls. If you are like me, you won't be so disturbed by the cost difference if you camp at VF, do a bit of your own shopping and cooking, and like having your own transportation. Besides, if you paid for accommodation and go to restaurants, the differences could fizzle away fairly quickly.

Diesel is currently about ~1.28-$1.38/L

The Municipal campsite is where people generally camp is safe, and literally close to most everything. Overland trucks stop there too. www.vicfallsrestcamp.com/


Each vehicle has to pay for a Gate pass, road access fee, 3rd party insurance, & carbon tax

Gate pass & road access fee - $20

3rd Party Insurance Light vehicle - $30

3rd Party Insurance trailer - $15

Carbon Tax (varies with engine capacity) –

less than 1500cc - $6

exceeding 1500cc but not exceed2000cc -$11

2000cc but not exceeds 3000cc - $15

Exceeds 3000cc - $30

All rental Vehicles pay $50 extra fee for Commercial Vehicle Guarantee.

And don't forget your visa costs too.
