A small town on the border between Zambia and Botswana that’s home to the Kazungula Ferry which transports vehicles across the Zambezi River between the two countries. This border post is part of the major south-north transport line between South Africa’s Durban harbour and Zambia. The Kazungula Bridge is under construction and should be completed in 2020. This will replace the ferry and ease the flow of traffic between the two countries.

The Engen fuel stop sometimes runs out of diesel as all the trucks refuel here where diesel is cheaper. So if you’re travelling through Kasane, it’s a good idea to refuel at the Shell or Puma fuel station before proceeding to Kazungula. (Mar-2019).
The Rural Health Centre (clinic) is now fully operational in Kazungula. For pharmaceutical services there is the Prime health pharmacy at the Borogo junction mall. (Mar-2019).

There’s no ban on taking fresh meat and fresh produce (for your own consumption) into Zambia and Zimbabwe but you may be hassled by entrepreneurial officials. If you want to avoid this hassle, there is an OK food store and small Hypermarket in Vic Falls (Zimbabwe) and a Shoprite in both Mongu and Livingstone (Zambia), that are all well stocked. (Mar-2019).

If you are travelling between Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana, the fuel is much cheaper in Botswana. To avoid the queue of tourists at the Kazungula Road Border post into Zimbabwe, arrive before 07h30 - most big tour buses leave their lodges from 08h00 onwards. On the Zambian side, you’ll want to overnight in Livingstone rather than Kazungula.
