Safari and Tours in Zimbabwe PDF Print E-mail
MatusadonaLioness.jpgZimbabwe is safe for visitors. Believe it! We live here, and have been visiting the remote wild areas of the Zambezi Valley and Kariba regularly for the past ten years! Now that the country has put itself onto a firmer political and economic footing, your tourism dollars are needed more than ever, and will be properly accounted for!
Normal precautions about visitor safety are advised, as in any other country in Africa, or indeed the World.
Be careful of your valuables. Use a money belt or pouch rather than a sling bag. Do not leave valuables in a car, even if it is locked.
Avoid walking alone at night or in remote areas.
Be wary if strangers approach you, however friendly they are.
Seek advice from reputable (or known) sources of information only.
Be polite and remain calm if stopped by police or at a road-block. 
Avoid taking photos of "strategic" facilities (airports, bridges etc) or "sensitive" places (presidential residences or embassies).
