Acceptable Currency at Zambezi Sun


Could anyone who has stayed at The Zambezi Sun advise the currency accepted at the hotel/complex/. Although in Zambia I have heard US Dollars is the preferred currency....is this true? Or is the local currency preferred?

I am flying in to Zimbabwe and know I MUST pay in US dollars for my 2 way Visa. What about the local excursions, is there a wide variation and again what is preferred payment...I assume "plastic" can be used at the resort??

I am staying for 4 nights in mid June as part of our honeymoon and after a safari in Kruger am looking forward to a day or so chilling plus some "adventures"...much on offer? Has anyone stayed in June before who can advise weather conditions.

Sorry for soooo many questions but any advice would be most grateful.

Almost all prices are listed in both kwacha and US dollars. The problem with using kwacha is that you need handfuls of it to pay for most anything. Credit cards are accepted at the resort.
