Please make sure your passport is current and valid for at least six months beyond your trip departure date. Your passport should have at least three blank pages for the entry and exit stamps, or more if you are visiting several countries on this trip. Please note that the last two amendment pages are not acceptable for visas and immigration stamps.
For US citizens, we recommend you get the KAZA Univisa, available on arrival at Victoria Falls International airport. The cost is USD $50.
Please consult with a travel clinic or your personal physician regarding the recommended immunizations for travel to Zimbabwe and Zambia. You will need to do this well in advance of your trip as some vaccinations require time to take effect, and you may need to allow time between a series of shots. Comprehensive information can be found on the CDC websites for Zimbabwe and Zambia.
In addition to being up-to-date on routine vaccinations 4-6 weeks before travel, the CDC recommends that most travelers be vaccinated for Hepatitis A, Typhoid, and to take prescription medication before, during and after your trip to prevent Malaria. The CDC also recommends some travelers to be vaccinated for Hepatitis B, Rabies, and Yellow Fever*.
*Yellow Fever: There is no risk of yellow fever in Zimbabwe. The government of Zimbabwe requires proof of yellow fever vaccination only if you are arriving from a country with risk of yellow fever. This does not include the US.
Note: Zika is endemic in Zimbabwe and Zambia, and the CDC believes the risk to travelers is low. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant you should discuss your travel plans with your doctor.
