hi collywobbles. I don't suppose if you can remember if you paid the taxi driver to the airport in Kwacha or US dollars. What currency do taxi drivers take? Cheers, Dan. :D

Hi dan 3005

We paid the taxi driver in dollars. It was easier as ther was 4 of us in the taxi and some had no kwechas left. I think we only paid something like 20 dollars for the trip. But it was3 years ago. Mind you get kwechas from an atm was hairraising. With all the zeros I end up withdrawing about 1 million kwecha. It sumed up to be about 100 euro. It seemed a lot at the time. Any extra activities we paid dollars. For our meals we paid kwechas. They love the dollars. Taxi drivers prefer dollars but I know we paid kwechas going to the falls and back in a taxi. Feel free to ask if you have anymore questions.
I assume you are joining the trip at Windkok ?

Cheers :D
