Harare Driving Information


 
Driving is on the left side of the road.


 
All Harare Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.


 
Your local drivers' licence is required.


An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).


 
Harare Driving Stress Level: 6/10

Driving in Zimbabwe can be extremely hazardous, particularly at night. Zimbabweans drive on the left side of the road and many people drive over the speed limit. Although the main roads throughout Zimbabwe are generally in fair but deteriorating condition, most lack passing lanes, shoulders, breakdown lanes, lighting, reflectors, and similar safety features. DUI enforcement does not generally exist, resulting in high rates of impaired drivers, especially at night.


Travellers are advised to avoid driving at night. Pedestrians (in dark clothing) and animals are often walking along and on the roads, and the majority of roads in Zimbabwe are poorly lit. Motor vehicles often have no headlights or taillights and are difficult to see at night. Passing lanes are not always clearly marked, and road visibility at times can be restricted. In urban areas, lane markers are often faded, with both streetlights and traffic lights inoperative. Potholes are numerous on most roads.


NOTE:It is an offence to continue driving when the President's motorcade goes past, no matter which side of the road you are on. If you see the motorcade, pull off the road or onto the side of the road if this is not possible. There have been a number of incidents where people have been assaulted by the security forces for stopping in the wrong place or for not stopping soon enough.


 


Harare Airport Car Rental Recommendations


 
IHateTaxis.com recommends a Harare Airport car rental.

Harare is very spread out. The best option to get around is by car, which is easier now that dollarization has made fuel shortages a thing of the past. Fuel is freely available at most outlets for cash or through a coupon system. Most operators now import fuel by themselves and prices are independently set. Most service stations close at around 7pm although there are a number that offer 24-hour service.
