Getting to Harare Airport

You'll find flights to Harare Airport from Toronto Pearson International (YYZ). The best itineraries have two stops in each direction, usually with Lufthansa having that option. Some of the other carriers include Air France, Ethiopian Airways, KLM and South African Airways. Codesharing, where your itinerary is booked under one carrier but you fly on different airlines, is common. Many carriers are also partnered with Air Canada. The Skyscanner flight screen lists the airlines used on each itinerary where codesharing is a factor.

Airport Facilities

Harare Airport is the largest in Zimbabwe and can get busy at times. Most flights come from within Africa and the Middle East. The airport has two terminals and you could land at either one. Passenger services include cafes, duty-free shops, currency exchange counters, ATMs, a post office and an onsite hotel. WiFi is available.

Rental car desks are found near baggage claim. Harare is spread out, so this is one of the best ways to get around. Just remember that most service stations close early. Taxis are the other transport option, costing a flat $35 CAD for the 15-kilometre trip into town. The ride usually takes about 25 minutes. Some hotels provide shuttles for their guests.

To get around town, you might opt for a shared taxi, which can hold up to eight people and cost up to $4 CAD during the day and $6 CAD at night. Rates are negotiated before leaving for your destination.

Zimbabwe doesn't have its own currency and accepts cash from many countries, including the US dollar and the Euro, but not the Canadian dollar. Changing some Canadian cash into either one of those is probably the easiest way to go.
