    Alan, I don't think this is doable. I don't recall a road of any size near the crossover bridge and I have been to both sides. The narrow path you go down from the hotel in Zambia is basically a National park and the gates close at night. Maybe others can chime in hear in case I am mistaken, but I have been on the Zimbabwe side too stating at the VICTORIA Falls hotel.

    What is not doable- walking across the bridge to the Royal Livingstone or getting a shuttle or taxi? As I said, I wouldn't attempt to walk it for just the reasons you mention, unless I was backpacking. I am still researching, but it appears that it may take three taxis for the trip- one from VFA to the Zimbabwe border, one from Zimbabwe border to the Zambia border, and one from the Zambia border to the Royal Livingstone. There are shuttles that advertise one price for the entire trip, but I haven't been able to tell what is involved with those. I would need to get a Univisa at the airport. The reason I am contemplating flying into Vic Falls vs Livingstone is that I can fly there on Ethiopian Airlines from Dulles with only one short 1hr.20min. layover in Addis Ababa (no AMS, no LHR, no JNB, and no 12 hr. or longer layovers!!!) and arrive in Vic Falls at a reasonable time 1215- all for a really good Business Class fare. Another ET option is IAD-ADD-Lusaka on ET and Proflight to LVI.

No matter how many possessions you have accumulated, when you travel you have to leave everything behind except what you can carry from place to place. You must streamline your existence to a bare minimum. That is a huge accomplishment in itself and a major component of ...
