"Get some Zimbabwe currency with huge numbers" Victoria Falls Things to Do Tip by mikelisaanna

Victoria Falls Things to Do: 194 reviews and 342 photos

In recent years, Zimbabwe had one of the worst bouts of hyperinflation ever experienced by any nation. As a result, it had to print currency in ever larger denominations, with bill denominations ultimately reaching into the billions and trillions before the currency (the Zimbabwe Dollar) was finally abolished and replaced by the US Dollar and South African Rand.

Although it no longer issues its own currency, you can still find plenty of large-denomination Zimbabwe Dollar bills in the various souvenir shops around Victoria Falls and Livingstone. They make great conversation pieces when you get back home.
