Is it safe to take a Zimbabwe tour?
Zimbabwe's political situation has improved and is safe to visit in our opinion as long as you join in an organized safari or tour. Your guide will keep you safe at all times. Be sure to listen carefully to your guide's instructions and follow the rules of the parks. On self-drive safari, don't drive too close to animals and only park in designated safe areas. Pickpocketing is occasional in the cities, but visitors on a guided tour are mostly sheltered from that. It's fine to walk around the city alone during the day, but we still recommend you to consult your hotel about the local safety advice.
