Zimbabwe is basically a landlocked country to the south of Africa. It borders South Africa to the south. Due to this, it has three major transport systems:
- In Zimbabwe's tourism sector, air transport is a major transport system that is used by tourists to get to the tourist destinations such as National parks.
- Many tourism agencies will charter a private plane if that is in your budget to be able to move across the country.
- Flying is a good way of travelling as one gets to fully appreciate and experience the landscape of the country from above.
- You also do not have to spend long hours on the road to get to your preferred destination.
- Just like very many countries, road transport is the most widely used transport system in the country.
- Getting around, you can opt to use public transport systems such as the buses.
- There is a bus line that is owned by the government. It is however not preferred by the locals due to its poor quality and standards.
- Most of the people prefer the privately owned bus lines as they seem more reliable.
- There is no published bus transport route. However buses ply a specific route and asking around, you can get help.
- Be sure, however, to ask the bus drivers as other people may not give you accurate information.
- There are also public transport systems such as taxis and Uber in the country.
- You can get in these if you do not wish to be in the hustle and bustle of the people.
- Also, private means tend to get you to your destination faster.
- There is a railway line that runs across the country from the north to the south as it connects to South Africa.
- It, however, deals mostly on freight goods rather than passenger transport.
- This does not mean that people cannot be transported via rail, however, to find the schedule, you have to go to the train station.
