I am a solo female traveler traveling alone to Zimbabwe and South Africa in April, and I'd appreciate your advices and tips on ground transportation in Zimbabwe.
The must for me in Zimbabwe are Victoria falls and Great Zimbabwe ruins. Harare and Bulawayo (Matobo & Khami) are options. My headache now is how to move from Bulawayo to Masvingo (more specifically from Gweru to Masvingo) by public transportation. I find train/ bus from VFA to Bulawayo, bus with good connection from Bulawayo…
Hi everyone. I'm planning a trip to Zimbabwe this summer. Zimbabwe is where I am really looking forward to visit.
I have relied on Lonely Planet guidebooks for several times and they worked. But this time what I only have is the 2004 version of Africa on a shoestring(10th edition). I agree that some of prices or information would have been changed but I think that the book would be still acceptable. Will it be all right to cling to this book?
Hi everyone! We are planning our trip around zimbabwe in august, and we need to go from bulawayo to chiredzi by public transport. We saw there is a train but it runs only once a week and the schedule doesn't fit our calendar, so we are looking at bus routes. The only option we found on internet is ZUPCO bus via masvingo. So we have some questions now:
1-are there also other companies which serves the bulawayo-chiredzi route?
2-are ZUPCO time tables reliable? (we have only 3 hours time in masvingo…
I would like your help.
I will fly from Dar es Salaam to Victoria Falls in July, with a stop in Harare for 8 hours.
My flight arrives at harare international airport at 00:40 am.
At 09:40 am I have another flight to Victoria Skirts
I would like to sleep at Harare airport but I can not find information.
Does anyone know Harare airport? Is it possible to spend the night at the airport? It's safe?
I hope you can help me. Thank you
Does anyone have any experience on travelling from either Bulawayo or Harare to Maputo, or preferably Inhambane? Seems I can take a bus and connect in either Jo'burg or Pretoria, but not sure if there is a quicker way around without flying? Any help would be great!
I am planning to travel to Zimbabwe in July together with another person.
It's hard to make an estimate on required budget though, as I read mixed stories on-line, going from that is a more of a budget option compared with Eastern Africa (Kenya, Tanzania) for instance, to outrageously expensive, even compared with Western standards.
Could anyone please advice on general cost of travel?
* Cost of a basic meal
* Cost per night in a basic lodge with double bed in a national park

Latest update: Entry requirements section – the KAZA Univisa is valid for travel between Zimbabwe and Zambia and day trips into Botswana; it’s available at Harare, Buluwayo and Victoria Falls airports and at the land border at Victoria Falls (Zambian border) and Kazalunga (Botswana border); it costs US$50 and is valid for 30 days
I will be in Zimbabwe later this year, and had planned to rent a 4x4 from SA and get it delivered to Harare where I am flying to (cheaper than renting in Zim sadly) and then drive up to Kariba, do some canoe safari on the Zambezi to Mana Pools, and then cross over to Zambia and drive down to Vic Falls, before moving onward to Hwange, Matobo, Bulawayo.
The issue: Our SA rental agency have just said "Kindly note that rental vehicles are not allowed to use the Kariba/ Chirundu border posts due to…
