Zimbabwe is such a Jewel of a Country

ss

 

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, USA, Japan & most of E.U no longer has official alerts warning against travel to the country

The fact that the US dollar is now the main trading currency has made a huge difference

 

Do not allow anyone to take your credit card out of your sight

Clients should carry cash on them in either U$ or Rand, and in small denominations as they are unable to give change in foreign currency

 

Despite continuing unrest in some parts of Zimbabwe, much of the country remains trouble-free and is safe to visit

Stick to well-established tourist destinations, visiting with reputable tour operators rather than independently.

 

Zimbabwe is a headache for those that don't know first hand what to do and not to do. If carefully planned a holiday in Zimbabwe can be the best and cheapest safari experience in Africa

Tips and Quick Facts

The strange nature of Zimbabwe's crisis meant it was never really unsafe to visit the country.

 

Zimbabwe’s tourism highlights such as Victoria Falls, Hwange, and Lake Kariba are well away from urban centres and most often travelers to Zimbabwe never see or hear of trouble and the visitor is safe

In fact in Victoria Fallsthere is a special tourist police force who patrol 24/7 to ensure the safety of visitors

International driving permits and valid driving licence's issued in Zambia, Malawi, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland are valid in Zimbabwe.
