Petrol and diesel is not a problem and is readily available at most garages in the major centers. You have to pay with cash. Diesel price currently around $1.46 per litre.

Start off from Victoria Falls with a full tank as often the garage at Hwange town has no fuel and the fuel at halfway house is sporadic at best. If you cannot do at least 500kms on a tank then my advice would be to fill up at Hwange safari lodge (10kms off the main road) which normally has fuel, otherwise Lupane is another option but it's by no means a certainty

Bulawayo will not be a problem but again leave with a full tank as some of the smaller stops between Bulawayo and Beitbridge have sporadic supplies
