Getting There: One can fly to Zimbabwe from Nairobi with South African Airways (via Jo'burg), Ethiopian Airlines (via Addis Ababa), Emirates (via Dubai) or Kenya Airways (KQ) for approximately $850. KQ flies direct to Harare and sometimes via Lusaka and returns via Lilongwe, Gaborone or Lusaka. Kenyans do not require visas and there was no Yellow Fever certificate requirement. If one plans on extending their stay in Zimbabwe, it's best to write more days (than required) on the immigration form rather than the exact number in one's current itinerary.
On arrival, you find that, what used to be Harare International Airport in the 1990's is now the Domestic Terminal, while the new Chinese-built airport, is modern, airy and clean. Zimbabwe has four (4) airports around the country, but no domestic flights at the moment, besides charters.
The Immigration and Visa desks at Harare International are labeled in both English and Chinese. Visa prices vary depending on nationality and tourists needing visas can pay up to US$55 for one.[view whole blog post ]
