ZIMBABWE TOURIST SIM CARD

ZIMBABWE PREPAID SIM CARD BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about internet and data connection in Zimbabwe is fine in the big cities and it will be weak outside the cities. There are 3 phone operators in Zimbabwe: Econet, NetOne and Telecel. Social media apps you have to pay extra per day for using them. Zimbabwe data packages aren’t so affordable and the coverage isn’t good.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is to buy a prepaid sim card in Zimbabwe. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime.

We recommend you to buy your Zimbabwe tourist sim card outside the airport because prices and packages are better in the official stores. Anyway data is affordable in Zimbabwe but the connection isn’t the best.

Sometimes is hard to connect your laptop to the VPN and you have to be patient. If you go for a week you will find VPN with free trials. We used Atlas VPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark and Proton VPN. When connecting the VPN to your device will make it slower than usual.

BEST TIME TO VISIT ZIMBABWE

In Zimbabwe summer months from December to February is so hot the weather and the high season. During the winter months from June to August the temperature is cold and it’s the low season.

We believe the best time to visit Zimbabwe is during the spring months from September to November when the days are fresh and sunny. The fall season from March to May can be a great time for visiting Zimbabwe.
