Zimbabwe is a safe country to visit, in general; all the more so if your visit is primarily an organised trip with an operator. There has been no travel advisory in effect since 2009. Zimbabwe’s political-economical situation remains strained, but it rarely affects tourists.
General Safety and Security
As with many third-world countries, theft incidents are not uncommon. Most incidents occur in cities, however, and are usually opportunistic. Walking around the cities alone and driving alone at night is not recommended. As with most destinations, being alert and observing a level of caution in the cities is advised. An overnight stay at a reputable hotel or an organised visit to one of the attractions in or around the city should be fine.
Safety in Wildlife Areas
Safety in Zimbabwe’s game reserves and parks is generally of a high standard. Wildlife viewing can be considered very safe as long as you treat the animals with respect and use a reasonable amount of caution. It is rare for incidents to occur and your professional guides and trainers are there to ensure your safety and train you to conduct yourself safely and confidently in the bush.
