Wellington - New Zealand Cricket says it is monitoring outbreaks of civil unrest in Zimbabwe ahead of the national team's scheduled tour there later this month.

The team is due to leave New Zealand on Monday (July 11) for Pretoria, South Africa for a training camp before flying on to the Zimbabwe capital, Harare on July 20.

New Zealand and Zimbabwe will meet in Test match series at Bulawayo beginning on July 29 and August 6.

A spokesman for New Zealand Cricket said it will continue to monitor the situation during the team's stay in South Africa. Workers in Zimbabwe are striking and police have clashed with demonstrators during protests over the nation's economy.

New Zealand's foreign affairs ministry warns travellers to Zimbabwe "should be vigilant and maintain a high level of personal security awareness."
