New Visa Rulings for Zambia?

Jump to last reply

We are heading for South Africa and Victoria Falls in August. I was about to book a Vic Falls package through Nationwide Airlines which included flights and accomodations. The S.A. travel agency that handles the Nationwide bookings informed me that I would need to procure a visa to Zambia before making the booking and that they could not help me with this. I had assumed that the hotel could procure me a visa or that I could obtain one at the border but was told that this has now changed (although the Zambia Tourist web site says a visa can be obtained at the border). I do not live in the U.S. and my travel agent does not know how to obtain a Zambian visa.
Has anyone had any experience with this recently? I'm wondering if I should fly to Zimbabwe, but then I loose out on what sounds like a good package deal.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
