U.S. State Department Issues New Warning for Travel to Zimbabwe

The State Department has issued a new travel warning for U.S. citizens who are planning to visit Zimbabwe. The travel warning states that individuals should limit their time in crowded cities such as Harare and Bulawayo, but they should also be aware of growing violence in rural communities. Military suppression of dissent against the government is becoming more regular with the government issuing statements that severe abuses of force will continue to occur. The State Department announced: “The Government frequently uses road blocks to enforce order. Road blocks can be particularly dangerous, and extreme caution should be used when approaching them. Travelers should comply with instructions from police or other security officials to stop at road blocks.” Please read the full Travel Warning at Zimbabwe Travel Alert. And as always, please check with your hunting outfitter before traveling to hunt.
