What should I know before visiting Harare?

Prices are often posted in US dollars

For several years, Zimbabwe operated with several different currencies, including US dollars. In late 2019, the country’s central bank introduced a new Zimbabwean dollar (ZWL). This is the official currency of Zimbabwe, but you’ll still see some prices in US dollars while holidaying on flights to Harare.

Avoid travelling alone at night

Once the sun goes down, pickpockets become prevalent in certain areas of the city. Try to do most of your sightseeing during the day, then head to a restaurant near your hotel for dinner. If you do go out at night, stick with a local guide who will know which areas to avoid in the evenings.

Keep valuables at home or in your hotel safe

Since pickpocketing can occur, avoid taking valuables with you when you catch cheap flights to Harare. Keep expensive jewellery at home and take extra care to keep cameras and smartphones secure while exploring the city. Also avoid carrying large sums of cash with you. Head to an ATM every few days to withdraw a bit of extra cash as you need it.
