The State of Zimbabwe

Following the fuel price hike announcement made by the Zimbabwean government on Sunday, 13 January affecting citizens, sporadic protests have arisen in the populous central business districts of Bulawayo and Harare. Since the announcement internet, email and social media connectivity was shut down by the government with internet and email connection being restored late Wednesday, 16 January. However the social media ban is still being imposed on both residents and tourists visiting the country by Econet (Zimbabwe’s largest mobile operator).

While unrest has struck the high-density areas, Victoria Falls and the surrounds remain unaffected by the protests. We want to reassure you that it is business as usual in this area and our partners are equipped to receive and service your guests.
