Staying healthy in Zimbabwe: Here’s what you need to know

Ensuring you're in good health before your trip to Zimbabwe is vital to an enjoyable visit. Here's a general health guide that will benefit visitors to the country.

Make sure to stay updated on routine vaccines

It's essential to be current with your routine vaccines before traveling. This includes vaccinations for measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DPT), varicella (chickenpox), polio, and your yearly flu shot.

The following vaccines are recommended for international visitors:

  • Hepatitis A: Advisable for infants 6 to 11 months old and any traveler over the age of 1 who hasn't received this vaccine and is traveling to Zimbabwe.

  • Hepatitis B: Recommended for all unvaccinated travelers planning to visit Zimbabwe.

  • Cholera: Recommended for those visiting regions in Zimbabwe where cholera outbreaks have occurred.

  • Malaria: Prescription medicine is recommended to travelers to prevent malaria. Depending on the medicine you take, you may need to start taking it days before your trip and during and after your journey.

  • Measles: MMR vaccine doses are recommended for infants aged 6 to 11 months before traveling.

  • Rabies: This vaccine is recommended for travelers involved in outdoor activities that might expose them to animal bites or those working with animals.

  • Polio: Adults who have been vaccinated should receive a booster dose, and those who have not should complete the vaccine series before their trip.

  • Typhoid: Especially recommended for visitors to rural areas, smaller towns, or those staying with locals.

  • Yellow fever: Recommended for travelers over nine months old and coming from countries with a risk of yellow fever virus transmission.

  • Stay informed about Zimbabwe's latest COVID-19 travel advisories, including any quarantine, testing, or vaccine documentation requirements. For up-to-date information, consult your airline or the nearest Zimbabwean embassy or consulate.

Medical facilities

  • Zimbabwe offers public and private medical facilities, with the quality of care generally higher in major cities such as Harare and Bulawayo.

  • In the countryside, healthcare facilities are more basic, and emergency services may be scarce.

  • Many international visitors often prefer private healthcare because of the broader selection of services and access to specialists. Make sure you have accessible funds or travel health insurance that is accepted in Zimbabwe.

  • You'll find pharmacies in cities and urban areas, stocking various over-the-counter drugs. However, if you need a particular prescription medication, it's better to bring it with you.

Health insurance

It’s essential to have travel health insurance for your entire trip.

Healthcare, especially in private facilities, can get expensive. Ensure your insurance covers significant health costs, including if you need to be evacuated for medical care.

Double-check with your insurance provider to confirm your policy covers:

  • Refunds for any travel mishaps, like cancellations or delays.

  • Costs for medical treatments and possible medical evacuation.

  • Compensation for lost baggage.

Things to be aware of when visiting Zimbabwe

Fill me in

To make your trip as smooth as possible, here are some guidelines to keep in mind.

  1. Food and water safety: To minimize the chances of health issues, drink only bottled water and be cautious with raw or undercooked meals.

  2. Follow local laws about photography: You’re not allowed to take photos of the President’s official residence, government buildings, and other sensitive places unless you have a special permit from the Zimbabwe Ministry of Information. When in doubt, don’t take a picture.

  3. Stay safe during the rainy season: From November to April, Zimbabwe's rainy season can disrupt road travel and cause flooding, making some regions tricky to reach. Check the regional weather forecasts for the latest weather updates and follow the instructions of local authorities.

  4. Safety during safaris: Keep a safe distance from wild animals during a safari and treat them with caution. Check with the Safari Operators Association of Zimbabwe to determine if your safari operator or tour guide is trained and licensed.

Medication for personal use

For those taking medication to Zimbabwe, here’s what you need to know:

  • Declare all medications: Make sure to declare any medications at customs, mainly if they are prescription or controlled substances.

  • Original packaging is a must: Always keep medications in their original packaging, clearly labeled with your name and the prescription information.

  • Carry a prescription or doctor's note: Bring a note from your doctor or a recent prescription detailing why you need the medication.

  • Check for restrictions: Double-check with the nearest embassy or Zimbabwe consulate to ensure no bans or restrictions on your medications.

  • Bring only what you need: To avoid any issues, only take the medication necessary for your trip.
