9. Roads are in great condition, and cross-country buses are reliable

Cross-country travel is safe and easy. Roads have been redone in the last five years and gone are the days of car-swallowing potholes. Expect to pay tolls driving between the three major cities — Harare, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls — and also to pass through a number of police checkpoints (as long as you don’t argue, the worst these do is yield a “fine” for breaking some unknown road rule), but on the plus side, carjacking is practically non-existent here. You can also easily travel in comfy long-distance coach buses.
