Many Zimbabweans are struggling to make ends meet, so being generous by tipping service workers is a good idea. Generally, a minimum of US$1 should be put aside for porters, waiters, local guides and drivers. Rounding up the bill at restaurants and other establishments is common as small change is hard to come by.
Tipping in some establishments (particularly more traditional ones) is considered impolite, and is sometimes indicated with a 'no tipping' sign! Western-style, tourist-orientated places, however, usually welcome and receive tips. Use your discretion.
