Money Matters

Zimbabwe's currency used to be the Zimbabwe dollar, but now foreign currency is the only acceptable method of payment. Carry U.S. dollars in small denominations and stick to U.S. dollars for all activity payments to Zimbabwe-based operators (all activities are quoted in U.S. dollars). Credit card facilities aren’t always readily available and MasterCard can only be used across the border in Zambia. (You’ll also find Western Union banks in Victoria Falls and Livingstone, should you need to do cash transfers.)
