CREDIT CARDS IN ZIMBABWE – an informational message from the Original 2AFRIKA, INC. Founder & President, Kenneth R. Hieber


Please note that due to the problems associated with the many zeros on the billions of Zimbabwe dollars that are required for even the smallest of payments, the banks in Zimbabwe have announced a complete stop to all credit card payments until they can sort out their systems to handle the currency!

Effective immediately NO credit card payments can be processed by any supplier in Zimbabwe any longer until further notice!

We encourage you to reserve additional Optional Excursions as far in advance as possible to guarantee a confirmation and to permit pre-payment which will avoid you having to carry large amounts of cash with you.

For extras at hotels and for any Optional Excursions you wish to purchase locally in Zimbabwe, you will need to carry foreign cash (recommended currency is US Dollars, in small denominations as there are often problems with US$ 100 bills)

With the Original 2AFRIKA, INC., you’re always the first to know!
