Zimbabwe Cash Shortage

Every now and again we experience a cash shortage in Zimbabwe. When this happens, visitors may not be able to withdraw as much as they would like from ATM’s and may sometimes not be able to get small change when shopping or visiting in various parts of town. At the lodge, visitors are able to pay with Visa/Master. These facilities however, are not widely available everywhere guests may visit.

Here’s how visitors can prepare for this, unless of course they are happy to leave some overly generous tips.

  • Exchange other currencies i.e. Euros, Pounds etc for US$ before arriving in Zimbabwe. It’s cheaper and easier that way. 
  • Bring small denominations for US$ bills where Visa/MasterCard are not accepted.
