if it's 299 USD on the Apple Store or anywhere online expect to pay at least plus or minus 80$ more. Remember there is a cost of shipping it to Zimbabwe and a cost for VAT and import duties. Cheaper is dearer, i would advise you to walk in an authorised Apple Re-seller, Dealer or Distributor of your choice

According to Zimra all ICT gadgets are duty free but one still has to pay VAT. I am not 100% sure about the current laws of such because I have been away from Zim for the past 8 years.

Individuals with non merchandise goods seem to pay 40% import duty. That's a big blow too
