Weather all year round
The climate in Zimbabwe is tropical, although clearly tempered by altitude. There is a dry season, including a short cool season from May to September. Nights and mornings can have temperatures between 0°C and 5°C, while days are sunny and pleasant. The rainy season extends from November to March with heavy showers in the afternoon
It is not a cheap destination. Safaris, park entrances, tourist attractions in Zimbawe are very expensive. It is therefore more a question of luxury tourism. In February 2019, Zimbabwe abolished the fixed parity between the US dollar and its quasi-currency, the "bond note", whose value has been falling steadily on the black market.
Floating value bond notes, renamed RTGS dollars (real time gross settlement), are now the reference unit. US dollars are accepted everywhere.
Please be aware that Zimbabwe is a country of political and social unrest. Check the French government website before planning your stay. An entry visa is required for French nationals. It is issued at the Zimbabwean Embassy in Paris or at points of entry into the country, particularly Harare and Victoria Falls airports.
Consult your doctor before leaving to prepare a pharmacy kit suitable for a stay in Zimbabwe. Malaria - level 3 - is endemic. The tsetse fly is sporadically present (Mana Pools) but the risk of catching sleeping sickness remains minimal. Be careful with your diet, do not drink tap water, wash your hands before meals, do not bathe in stagnant water, do not pet animals. Before you leave, check the quality of your health coverage.
