We recommend travelers to bring a reasonable amount (depending on length of stay and type of trip) of USD cash for the Visa upon arrival, small informal purchases and tips.

Visitors can still pay in USD for most items at hotels and tourist restaurants. If you are billed or need to pay for shopping in Zimbabwean dollars, you can ask the invoice/total to be converted to USD dollars and your international card debited in this way.

Mastercard and Visa credit cards are widely accepted at all restaurants, shops and activity providers, and by most taxis!
