Hello Boo! Thanks for all the info. I like the sound of all you have arranged and accept the program. One question: will I see the falls on the way to the croc Farm and/or the elephant safari?
Did Lorrie agree to take euros? If not I will bring some
dollars. Yes I will be paying all in Euros cash, so please give me an estimate
of what I need to bring. Including the visa cost.
Lunches – depending on where you eat – Wimpy or hotels I would suggest between US$12 – US$15 per person
Dinner – again depending on where you eat – would suggest US$ 20 -US$ 30 per person
Drinks – A Beer – US$3 – depending where you are and a coke –US$2 -3.
Transfers to and from Airport – US$12 per person one way
Taxi – US$8 for a trip in and around town
Tipping in Zimbabwe is normal between 5-10% of the final bill.
Souvenirs – Bungi T/Shirt etc – US$25 each
DVD – activities - US$ 30 each
Small carving approx -US$ 15 each
I would definitely recommend bringing small denomination notes – as change etc is always a problem.
T/Shirts/caps and shoes are like gold in Zimbabwe and good for bartering. Remember you are in Africa and the price they start at is definitely not the price you should pay – they like a bit of a haggle.
