The journey would be something like this by bus-

Livingstone to Lusaka- 6 hours

overnight in Lusaka

Lusaka to Dar- 24 hours

overnight in Dar

Dar to Nairobi- 13 hours

I don't think this would really make much sense, even financially.

The best idea would be to get an open jaw flight into Nairobi and out of Jo'burg and fly from Vic Falls to Jo'burg. Or possibly into Nairobi and out of Lusaka- there have been posts about Emirates starting flying to Lusaka which might be worth looking into.

You could ask if the overland company you are going with if they have any trucks transing back to Nairobi, (which company are you going with?)

you could email Kiboko safaris in Lilongwe to see if they have a 4x4 going back to Lilongwe from Livingstone(they sometimes have seats) if not it would be,

bus Livingstone to Lusaka.

bus Lusaka to Chipata then cross over the border then transport to Lilongwe.

bus to the tanzania border

bus from border to Dar

Dar to Arusha

Arusha to Nairobi
