ZIMBABWE - Victoria Falls

Location - Southern Africa; Capital - Harare; Population - 14 million; Currency - Many foreign currencies

I spent a day on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls, crossing over from Zambia in April 2006.


zimnote The Zimbabwe Dollar - this was the biggest note in 2006 but worth very little.
A period of hyperinflation has meant that since 2009 prices have been set in US$ or South African Rand; the Zimbabwe Dollar is no longer in use.
