How it works:
- You will likely get thronged by many taxi touts at transportation hubs, border crossings or at Victoria Falls. Some are fine but some will exploit you.
- As taxis are Zambia are not metered, they can easily quote you an inflated fare, or quote you a cheap price but at the end still change it to an crazy inflated fare citing additional fees such as for fuel.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Photo: take a photo of the car plate and driver’s license.
- Overcharging: research a fair price to negotiate with – check online fare estimators, your hotel/hostel staff or taxi booking apps (e.g. Ulendo). For longer trips, consider pre-arranging transport with a reliable company/driver.
