Fully Equipped Campervan Hire in Zimbabwe

Although Zimbabwe’s recent history has been chequered, it is still a reasonably safe holiday destination. Principal highways between the major towns are in reasonable condition and convenient for visitors with a motorhome rental to travel on with caution.

Zimbabwe is an awesome destination for anybody with even a remote interest in wildlife and unspoiled landscapes. Mana Pools is one of the finest national parks on the African continent and home to elephants, lions and other diverse wildlife. The ruins of the Great Zimbabwe Kingdom and the famed Victoria Falls are two of the country’s iconic tourist sites.

4×4 Camping vans are in high demand so please book early and take advantage of a wider choice of vans and normally cheaper prices. RV Rent A Campervan is a leading provider of camper holidays in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Harare.

Campervan Hire Zimbabwe

Recommended campervan rental drives in Zimbabwe

The western frontier:
From Bulawayo, the A8 runs north past Hwange National Park and up to the Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River. Hwange is a great stopover for wildlife spotting. There are several campervan sites close to the falls as well as at Bulawayo.

Harare to the northern border:
From the country’s capital of Harare north to Mana Pools and Lake Kariba. The park is home to dramatic vistas and Sapi Safari Area, where leopards and other creatures roam freely. Overnight stays with campervans are possible at Mana Pools and the lodges near Kariba.

South from Harare:
The road south leads to the Great Zimbabwe ruins and on to Chimanimani. The ruins are a massive complex near modern Masvingo, while the latter is a great hiking location. Lodges close to both locations allow people with motorhome rentals to park up overnight.

Road network:
The main roads are in reasonable states of repair, but once off the beaten track minor roads are in poor shape. Petrol stations are infrequent and it is advisable to fill up whenever the opportunity arises

Speed limits:
Urban roads: 60kph
Provincial roads: 80kph
National motorways: 80 to 120kph

Alcohol limits:
0.8 per cent, with this limit rarely enforced.

Zimbabweans drive on the left. Locals tend to drive a little erratically and rarely keep to the designated speed limits. Driving while using a mobile phone is illegal.

Cost of fuel:
slightly cheaper than UK fuel prices, make savings by driving frugal and plan your routes in advance.
