Deteriorating situation in Zimbabwe - should I still go?

Jump to last reply

Today the US State Dept issued a new travel warning regarding Zimbabwe and several newspapers are reporting the deteriorating situation there. I am scheduled to be at the Ilala Lodge July 23 and 24. Do I need to rethink these plans?

My agent seems to think we'll be fine because we're staying in the Victoria Falls area, but I'm still a little bit nervous about the whole thing.

Here are some the articles I've read:

I'm going to call the US Embassy in Harare in a bit. Does anyone else have any news?

Thanks.
