Vice-President of Zimbabwe is the second highest political position obtainable in Zimbabwe. Currently there is a provision for two Vice-Presidents, who are appointed by the President of Zimbabwe.

Under the ruling ZANU–PF party, the more senior of the two vice-presidential posts has traditionally been reserved for a representative of the party's historical ZANU wing, while the less senior post has gone to a representative of the party's historical ZAPU wing.
