Harare Airport Mini Guide

Why do People Visit Harare?
Most people who visit Harare are on their way to see family or are there for business. The city is not one of the main tourist attractions in the country but has places of interest including the National Gallery and the National Archive which holds many historical documents relating to the country’s early days. The city is in a state of disrepair because of the economic crisis and, whilst you can see what the city was like in better times, it looks a little shabby now.

Harare Airport
How do I get Into Harare?
Harare International Airport has seen dwindling passenger numbers over the last decade as the economic and political crisis in the city began to bite. With the demise of the national airline, no major airlines fly directly into Harare from outside Africa. The main access point to the airport is from international flights into Johannesburg and connecting there. Getting into the city can be easy but also often expensive with taxi drivers keen to make money out of foreign travellers. Hire car is the best and often cheapest way of getting around.
What is the Airport Like?
The airport, like the rest of the country, is a little worn looking but it’s the customer service that causes most comments from travellers. Often the staff are too engrossed in chatting to be able to offer assistance. You will be asked security questions and you may find that certain answers, not to the security staff’s liking, could see you interrogated more thoroughly or returned to your plane. Facilities are available such as foreign exchange and shops and restaurants but both the latter are so chronically under stocked and overpriced that it’s pointless bothering with them.
