Kazungula Ferry is a pontoon ferry across the 400-metre-wide Zambezi River. It is one of the largest ferries in south-central Africa and operates between border posts at Kazungula, Zambia and Kasane, Botswana.

The Kazungula Ferry links the Livingstone-Sesheke road (which connects to the Trans–Caprivi Highway at Katima Mulilo and forms part of the Walvis Bay Corridor) to the main north-south highway of Botswana through Francistown and Gaborone to South Africa, and also to the Kasane-Victoria Falls road through Zimbabwe. It serves the international road traffic of three countries directly (Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana) and of three more indirectly (Namibia, South Africa and DR Congo). North Star’s Roadside Wellness Centre is located at a truck stop near the ferry port.
