Zimbabwe Safety Update?

Jump to last reply

Hi all - we're very close to booking our first trip to Africa through a reputable travel agent, and the current plan calls for 3 nights at a lodge in Hwange and 2 nights at Vic Falls (Zim side). Zimbabwe's making the news again, this time with more currency problems.

Our trip isn't for months...but can anyone advise on the current situation there and whether it's safe/smart to go? I've read many previous posts on the problems in Zimbabwe, but nothing that reflects the latest news.

Many thanks in advance!
