Payments, Banks, Credit Cards

All mentioned entry fees, boarder charges, accommodation and activities need to be paid in foreign currencies. Preferred currency in Zimbabwe is the US$ and South African Rand. Although other currencies like the Euro can be used. We strongly advise guests to carry sufficient amounts of US$ in cash ($50 notes and smaller)

Rather pre book for your activities and accommodation.

Transfers from your hotel to activities or even to Chobe and Hwange national parks or across the Zambezi into Zambia are easy to arrange so there is no need to rent a car

Most nationalities can obtain a visa at immigration points at the airports and land boarder posts
Double Entry Visas are recommended to allow for day trips to Botswana and Zambia

At departure via airports or land boarders no departure tax has to be paid
