How Safe Is Zimbabwe Travel Right Now?

Jump to last reply

I booked with a tour company to South Africa and added on an extension to Victoria Falls. However, I have read reports about the political unrest which have made me very nervous about traveling to Zimbabwe.

I am supposed to be in Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls Aug 3 - Aug 7. The tour company has no plans to cancel the trip and there is no way to get my money back.

Changing flights on my own at this point will be incredibly expensive, but I have to consider my overall safety.

The US State Department recommends against all non-essential travel at this time, so clearly there is some threat to American tourists. I really don't know what to do.

How safe is it really if I will be with a tour group?
