You’ll find that most restaurants in Zimbabwe charge a service charge of 10% – though it’s acceptable to tip further if you wish – we suggest an added 10%-15% – depending on how good the service is. If you use a guide on your tours of Zimbabwe, then we suggest a tip of $5 (USD) per person. You’ll note that everyone speaks English though you’ll note that US Dollars and the local Zimbabwe dollar is accepted almost everywhere.
We recommend you pack for the tropics – light clothing and a sun hat are a must – as is a raincoat if you plan on visiting Zimbabwe during the rainy season. One thing to remember that it is actually illegal to wear camouflage pattered clothing in Zimbabwe.
