Convert cash to Zimbabwean dollars before your flights to Harare

Top Things to Do and See
Thetford Game Reserve
One of the top reasons people book airfare to Harare is to go on safari. When you book flights to Harare, you’ll have a number of safari locations to choose from. Thetford Game Reserve is located just 30 kilometres (18.6 miles) from the city, making it a great option. The reserve surrounds Lake Mazowe and covers an area of 3,300 hectares. There’s some gorgeous scenery as well as plenty of wildlife to enjoy after your cheap flights to Harare. Some animals you can expect to see in Thetford Game Reserve are zebras, giraffes, impala, and white rhinos.
The Mukuvisi Woodlands are located just outside the city limits and make up another nature reserve to visit after your flights to Harare. The Woodlands cover open plains and are home to animals including giraffes, jackals, wildebeests, and zebras. The Woodlands have walking trails and viewing platforms where you can watch the animals. They also run educational programs for children, making this a great place for families to experience Zimbabwean wildlife.

Exhibits explore the heritage of Zimbabwe through both traditional and contemporary artworks. Art includes paintings, masks, and sculptures that reflect the culture of the country.

The National Botanic Gardens are a beautiful place to go for a walk following your flights to Harare. The gardens cover an area of seven square kilometres and feature about 750 indigenous plant species that can be found throughout the woodlands of Zimbabwe. Visitors with cheap flights to Harare can also view plants from other parts of Africa as well as from South America and Asia.
Harare experiences warm weather year-round and strong sunlight. In order to protect yourself against the sun as well as mosquitos, pack lightweight clothes that offer full coverage. If you’ll be going out on safari, it is recommended to wear neutral-coloured clothing to blend in with nature; tan, brown, cream, and olive shades are ideal. You’ll also want a wide brimmed hat to protect yourself from the bright Zimbabwean sun. Sandals are appropriate to wear in the city, but pack a comfortable pair of hiking shoes for your flights to Harare that you can wear in the woodlands.
In addition to clothing, take insect repellent and sunscreen for your cheap flights to Harare. You may want to pack a small torch as well to use if you’ll be spending some time in the African bush. In order to get the best possible view of animals during safaris and woodland visits, pack a pair of binoculars. And in order to get the best photos of animals you spot, you’ll want a camera with a telephoto lens. These lenses can zoom in far to help you get that perfect wildlife shot. Telephoto lenses are expensive, but several camera retailers will rent one out to you to take on your return flights to Harare.
