Chizarira National Park is very remote and difficult to access. It is located in the northwest of the country, just south of Lake Kariba and about 200km/124mi from Victoria Falls. It is at least a 4- to 5-hour drive*. The condition of the access roads is often very bad, and a good 4WD is essential. In the Dry season, the road is often a 4WD challenge, with indistinct tracks, washed out riverbeds and deep ruts, while in the Wet season, the road often becomes impassable.

Your main point of entry into Zimbabwe is Victoria Falls Airport (VFA), located near the town of Victoria Falls. Normally, your local tour operator will pick you up at the airport and arrange further transportation throughout the country as part of your tour.

There are no scheduled flights to Chizarira National Park.

*Driving times are only a rough indication. You should always consider the possibility of significant delays.
