Tips for Twitchers
Birding season may occasionally be wet. For your comfort, please pack a lightweight waterproof jacket or raincoat. An umbrella is also useful to shield any photographic/video equipment. Other important items include sunscreen, mosquito repellent and a reliable torch. We recommend dark or camouflaged clothing. Natural fabrics work best in our tropical climate. A suitable wide brimmed hat is essential.
Tourist visas are issued on arrival at Harare International Airport but please do contact the Zimbabwe embassy in your country to be sure of the current and updated requirements. Visa information on the web: http://www.wildzambezi.com/articles/2018/02/16/zimbabwe-visa-information
Zimbabwe Situation Update
The situation in Zimbabwe can only be described as euphoric.
Local businesses in Zimbabwe not only continue to operate as usual, but with added optimism that our unique corner of our world may again be known for the majestic beauty of the Falls and the mighty Zambezi, the diverse wildlife and the friendly hospitality of the locals.
It is essential for all travelers to our region to take a malarial prophylactic, please seek and follow your medical professional's advice before traveling.
Please see below the link to the World Health Organisation's profile page for Malaria.
Cash is in extremely short supply in Zimbabwe currently, so it is essential to bring hard currency with you. We would advise that you bring both larger and smaller denominations. Please also note that under Zimbabwean law it is illegal for departing tourists to take more than US$1000 out of the country.

We highly recommend purchasing full medical insurance - including evacuation - for your travels through Zimbabwe and the southern African region.
Our safari areas are extremely remote, not all Zimbabwean telecom providers service these areas. We strongly recommend that our guests use ECONET. A local ECONET 'pay-as-you go' simcard is easily purchased at our international airports.
Please note there can be delays in communication. Sometimes the telecom infrastructure may be unreliable.
