Be sure to book car rental in Zimbabwe to make the most of your uniquely African adventure...
Although in recent years Zimbabwe's image has suffered due to its political history, it offers a unique African experience. The country encompasses semi-desert areas and picturesque highlands where you can see dramatic lakes and dense forests. Make sure not to miss the stupendous Victoria Falls, situated on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe car hire can allow you to visit the country’s many sites of interest. As previously mentioned, Victoria Falls in Matabeleland North should be on your itinerary. Don't miss the memorial statue to David Livingstone on the western side of the falls that was erected in 1954.
Cheap car hire in Zimbabwe allows you to really explore this exciting country. Remember that the drink-drive limit is quite low, so be careful if you sample the Chambuku and Shake Shake Beer. You will need an international driving licence to drive in Zimbabwe and a 4x4 is advisable if you intend to explore the countryside.
If you are planning to tour Zimbabwe, a hire car can be picked up at Harare International Airport (HRE) or Bulawayo Airport (BUQ). Car-rental offices can also be found in many downtown locations around the country. Booking car hire in advance of your Zimbabwe holiday will ensure the best rates, as well as guaranteeing the most suitable type of vehicle for your trip.
