Rules of the road:

In Zimbabwe drive on the left hand side of the road and give way to traffic approaching on the road to your right at uncontrolled intersections.

At controlled intersections, motorists are required to yield to pedestrians crossing on a green light

At all intersections, a fire engine, ambulance or police vehicle sounding a siren takes precedence over all other traffic; move out of its course

The general speed limit in Zimbabwe is 120 km/h on open roads and 60km/h in urban areas, but watch for signs.

Victoria Falls and Kariba are connected by a very poor dirt road - The alternative is to drive on the Zambian side (8 hours, potholed tar for 50 kms just outside Livingstone)
