Money, currency and credit cards  
  • Zimbabwe currently has no currency of its own and have adopted a multi-currency system. All major currencies are accepted for payment but the currency of choice is the USD as all prices are denoted in USD.
  • All major credit cards are accepted at the big hotels in Victoria Falls including The Victoria Falls Hotel. But the most popularly accepted cards are Visa and MasterCard.

Weather
The weather in Zimbabwe is generally pleasant throughout the year with some differences occurring between the high and low lying areas of Zimbabwe.
In the winter months (May to mid August) the weather is mild in the day and cool at night but areas like Hwange can be really cold at night. Winter days are generally clear and sunny with minimal chance of rain.

The summer months (November - April) are warm to hot. September and October can be really hot when temperatures rise to the mid - late 30's (Celsius) before the onset of the summer rains which cool things down.

Clothing
On safari in Zimbabwe: casual clothing in neutral colours are best. Light layers which can be removed as the day warms up are useful - even for winter as the days are generally pleasantly warm (mid 20's Celcius). Winter nights and early mornings can be really cold so please include an anorak, fleece, beanie and scarf in your luggage and include some comfortable walking shoes.

Power

In cities and towns, all electrical appliances run on 220V/240V AC accessible via 14-amp alternating current and outlets are square 3-pin plugs. While some hotels and camps can supply adaptors (3-prong round, 3-prong square, 2-prong round, 2-prong flat) we recommend that you carry your own.

At Ruckomechi Camp solar units charge the batteries located at each tented room, providing good 12V lights all night (if used sensibly). There are only 220V power points in the main camp area. If you have an item that runs on 110V, please bring a converter.
