Zimbabwe is located in the southern part of Africa. Zimbabwe adapter plug allows you to plug your foreign appliances and electronics into Zimbabwe wall outlets. Zimbabwe uses a couple of different style of adapter plugs.

Deluxe Zimbabwe Adapter Plug Kit for Travel includes both grounded and non grounded plugs and ships Priority Mail. 

Grounded and Non Grounded Adapters

If you will only need grounded adapters, the Standard Zimbabwe Adapter Kit comes with only grounded plugs.

If you only need non-grounded adapters, the Basic Zimbabwe Adapter Travel Kit comes with only non-grounded adapter plugs. 

Adapter plugs allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter) unless your appliance is dual voltage. A non-grounded adapter may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter.  If your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor is not dual voltage you will most likely need a converter to use your electric.  For more information see Going In Style's Adapter and Converter Finder.

Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup. Buy adapters online before you leave for your trip because it may be difficult to find adapters to convert US appliances once you arrive in Zimbabwe.

Grounded Adapter Plugs (Earthed Adapters)

If you are traveling with a grounded United States dual/multi-voltage appliance or using a grounded Transformer you will need to use a grounded adaptor plug. A grounded United States plug has two flat blades and one round pin.

Non-Grounded Adapter Plugs (Non-Earthed Adapters)

Going In Style offers non-grounded adapter plugs for use with your voltage converter, transformer, or dual/multi voltage appliance. A non-grounded United States plug has two flat blades.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Zimbabwe operates on 220 volt electricity and is generated at 50Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. This difference in cycles may cause the motor in your 60Hz United States appliance to operate slightly slower when used on 50Hz foreign electricity. Most modern electronic equipment including battery chargers, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.

Converter- Changing Current Voltage

Going in Style adapters allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. Adapter plugs DO NOT convert voltage and only change the configuration of the pins. When voltage conversion is needed, use an electricity converter. An electricity converter changes the voltage input into your appliance. The United States electrical appliances operate on a lower current of 110-120 volts AC (Alternating Current). Most of the world operates on 220-240 volts AC. Therefore converter units enable your electronic and non-electronic appliances to run on foreign electricity (220-240 volts) to match the voltage requirements of your 110-120 volt device. Failure to run your appliance with a converter could damage your appliance.

Computers and Apple Products

If you are traveling overseas with a Toshiba, HP, Lenovo, Asus, laptop or Apple device such as an iPad, chances are you won’t need a voltage converter. Most laptops are multi-voltage and will operate on voltages ranging from 100 to 240 volts. However, computers do need to make safe connections to foreign power systems and a surge protector is recommended and you will still need an adapter to use your plug.


About Zimbabwe


Zimbabwe is located in Southern Africa, between South Africa and Zambia. Its area is slightly larger than Montana. The climate is tropical; moderated by altitude; rainy season (November to March). The terrain is mostly mostly high plateau with higher central plateau (high veld); mountains in east.


Currency in Zimbabwe was once the Zimbabwe Dollar (ZWD), but the government abonded this in 2009 and the country now has a multi-currency system. Foreign currency such as the South African Rand, Botswana Pula, and the US Dollar are accepted. Credit cards are generally accepted. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks and hotels.

Staying Connected

Zimbabwe’s telephone system was once one of the best in Africa, but now suffers from poor maintenance. When travelling to Zimbabwe you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Zimbabwe SIM card. You can also contact your mobile service provider to set up an international calling plan. You will need an adapter to charge your phone. Most cell phone battery rechargers should be multi-voltage, therefore will not require a converter. If the charger says 100-240 volts, 50-60 cycles then your charger in multi-voltage.

Zimbabwe has 30,650internet hosts and 1.423 million internet users. Internet connection is available in Harare and planned for all major towns and for some of the smaller ones. It may be difficult to find an internet connection outside of Harare. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
