Whilst the primary legal tender in Zimbabwe is the Zimbabwe dollar (ZWL), it is currently possible for tourists to transact using the US Dollar at the official exchange rate. There are some bureaux de change which will accept and change foreign currency, particularly US dollars.

Business Hotels

When it comes to doing business, we’re serious about keeping your priorities in line with your business objectives. You need fewer children and noisy tourists around you. The minimum distractions. Therefore, Monomotapa Hotel is our choice business hotel.

Families with Children

It’s really a matter of convenience in terms of location when it comes to choosing a family-orientated hotel in Zimbabwe. Hotel Troutbeck Resort*** makes the selection process a wee bit difficult. However, we’ve ended up selecting Hotel The Kingdom at Victoria Falls****. Have a look!

The Most Expensive Hotels

When Victoria Falls is on your itinerary, then you will be very happy to stay here in a national park. You’re about ten minutes from the falls. It’s also in our collection of top luxury hotels in Zimbabwe (see below).

The Top Luxury Hotels

I just love this hotel. The service is excellent, the staff is amazing, the food is delish, and the location is awesome (on a river)! What more can one ask for when it comes to Africa!?

Pet-Friendly Hotels

If you’re like me, you think of your beloved Tiger all the way to your holiday destination, and back – also in between! The good news is that Zimbabwe has many pet-friendly hotels. Such as Hotel The Kingdom at Victoria Falls**** that I’ve mentioned earlier. However, Bayete Guest Lodge is highly recommended when it comes to taking Sniffles or Tiger on a well-deserved holiday!

Hotels with A Rivier View

Don’t you just love it when you have a room with a view? Particularly when you’re from the city and this is your great escape. The first cup of coffee of the day is best consumed in nature with a view from a National Geographic magazine.

Romantic Zimbabwe Hotels

Romance is not just for Valentine’s Day celebrations. Every new day is another reason to celebrate love. And where better than at the Victoria Falls Hotel, a mere 0.5 km from Victoria Falls city center.

Most Popular Zimbabwe Hotels

The Rainbow Towers Hotel and Conference Centre is one of the most popular hotels booked in Zimbabwe. It’s not only great for business purposes. In addition to the business facilities, they offer great facilities. Such as a hairdressing salon, a very hand gift shop, and even a children’s playground. It’s one of those all-rounders, with plenty more amenities aimed at your convenience.
