The swop rate in banks is solitary a branch of the dual carriageway (black souk) rate, but at lowest possible it's legal!

Ask your tour-guide or building boss for the unsurpassed botanist to make over hard cash. And don't move too considerably at sometime - The Zimbabwe Dollar is unreservedly trifling outside of Zimbabwe.

You will condition hard cash US Dollars to be paid all primary purchases - plus corridor to Victoria Falls National piece of ground.
