Q: Six safety measures that will inform couple on safety measures to be taken during their stay in zimbabwe
A: SAFETY AND SECURIT Terrorism There is a low threat from terrorism, but you should be aware of the global risk of indiscriminate terrorist attacks, which could be in public areas, [ including those frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers. Crime There is a moderate level of crime, including occasional armed robberies targeting foreign residents. Make sure your accommodation is secure
at all times. Mugging, pick pocketing and jewellery theft are common in city centres, especially after dark. Be particularly careful at Harare airport, and when leaving banks and cash points. Don?t carry large amounts of cash. Avoid travelling around alone. Carry your Zimbabwean Resident ID or a photocopy of your passport. If you lose your passport, inform the police and the British Embassy in Harare immediately. There have been thefts and smash-and-grab robberies from vehicles, especially at main intersections along the route to Harare Airportand on the Masvingo-Beitbridge road. You should be particularly vigilant when using these routes. Keep vehicle doors locked and windows closed. Be particularly careful at night and at filling stations. Don?t leave your vehicle unattended in unguarded areas in towns. Local travel Zimbabwe has many safari lodges and game reserves. Safety standards vary, and you should check whether operators are trained and licensed. There have been a number of incidents in which animals have attacked visitors resulting in injuries and, in some cases, deaths. Some activities, such as walking or canoe safaris, could pose risks to personal safety. You should treat wild animals with caution and respect, and keep a safe distance from them at all times. Flash flooding during the rainy season (November to February) can make some roads impassable. There are frequent power cuts that affect the whole country, sometimes for days at a time, as well as occasional fuel and water shortages. The Zimbabwean mobile phone network and land lines are unreliable. Rural areas Most of Zimbabwe?s commercial farms have been occupied or taken over by members of the National War Veterans' Association and others. ]
