About Landscape

Zimbabwe Security Overview

Crime is a common problem throughout Zimbabwe. Most reported incidents are opportunistic such as muggings, theft, pickpocketing and snatching of personal belongings. In major cities, including Harare, ATMs should be approached with caution. Criminals have been known to watch ATMs before following their victims to commit robbery. Foreign travelers are considered vulnerable due to their perceived wealth.

Road travel across Zimbabwe can be unpredictable and dangerous. Road conditions are poor, and potholes are prolific. Road Traffic Collisions (RTCs) are frequent, and fatality rates are high due to the inadequate state of roads. Local drivers regularly ignore road traffic laws and drive erratically. Most roads have reduced visibility when driving during the hours of darkness and potential hazards are common.
