Visa & Passport Requirements
 

Visas are required by most visitors to Zimbabwe and can usually be obtained at your point of entry.
 

Flights & Getting Around
 

The main airports are:
Harare International Airport: mostly used as a conduit to Victoria Falls, the easiest way to fly into Harare is via Johannesburg as there arent many direct international flights into the country.
Victoria Falls International Airport: serving Victoria Falls, Hwange and the Zambezi Valley destinations, this airport is a local logistics hub and connects easily with destinations in Botswana and further afield.
Road transfers in Zimbabwe are usually conducted in mini buses and game drives in open-sided 4X4 vehicles. Light aircraft charters are available for flights to more remote destinations.
 

Languages
 

Zimbabwe has 17 official languages. English, Shona and Ndebele are the most widely spoken languages in the country.
 

Health
 

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (www.cdc.gov), the following vaccinations are recommended for Zimbabwe: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, rabies and typhoid. Yellow fever is not a risk in the region, but the certificate is an entry requirement if you're coming from an infected region.
It's also important to take antimalarial meds.
 

What to Pack
 

Generally, casual comfortable clothing is suitable for Zimbabwe throughout the year. For your Zimbabwe safari, pack lightweight clothing in light, neutral colours (but not white as it gets dirty very easily). Include a warm jacket or fleece in your suitcase for evening game drives as well as a pair of comfortable walking shoes.
 

Accommodation
 

Whether you're visiting for business or pleasure, Zimbabwe's vast selection of accommodation will not disappoint. Ranging from affordable self-catering or bed & breakfast options to lavish hotels, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Imagine eating your breakfast overlooking the Zambezi River as you're serenaded by birdsong, or sharing a sunset walk with a herd of majestic elephants.
If you want to get back to nature, without sacrificing comfort, Zimbabwe's plethora of luxury safari camps, campsites and lodges provides the perfect retreat.
 

Electricity
 

In Zimbabwe the power sockets are of type D and G. The standard voltage is 220 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.
 

Currency
 

The Zimbabwean dollar is no longer in active use after it was officially suspended by the government due to hyperinflation. The United States dollar (US$), Euro, South African rand, Botswana pula, Pound sterling, Indian rupees, Australian dollars, Chinese Renminbi, and Japanese yen are legal tender. The United States dollar has been adopted as the official currency for all government transactions.
