Flights to Zimbabwe

International flight routes to Zimbabwe

We have excellent flights rates, and most of our travellers arrange their flights to Zimbabwe with us. However, if you'd like to organise your own flights, or book with air-miles, that's certainly also possible. If you arrange your own flights to Zimbabwe, we will happily organise your ground travels.

Starting from London

The easiest and most direct way from London to Zimbabwe is to fly via Johannesburg, in South Africa – which is served by British Airways and South African Airways. These flights depart every evening, arriving in Jo'burg the following morning. (There used to be direct flights with BA, but these stopped some years ago.)

In Jo'burg, connections with BA or SAA link through to Harare, in Zimbabwe. Outbound they usually leave Jo'burg in the morning or around noon, arriving in Harare in the early afternoon. From there, our Zimbabwe destinations, including Matobo Hills National Park, can be reach by further road transport.

If you're already on a safari holiday in Zambia or Botswana, the some certain areas of Zimbabwe are easily accessible:
- Victoria Falls lies across the river from the Zambian town of Livingstone and is easily reached using a transfer from either Livingstone or Kasane (in Botswana);
- Mana Pools National Park can be reached from Lower Zambezi National Park – although you'll have to leave the park and travel via the border post at Chirundu;
- Hwange National Park in fact borders Botswana, and that's also easy to reach from Kasane or Livingstone, via Victoria Falls.

Starting from North America

Flying from North America, respectively Canada, you have choices to make about your intercontinental flights. Roughly speaking, your options for the flight arrangements are:

1) You coordinate your return flights USA -> London and London -> USA.
Expert Africa organises the London -> Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe -> London flights for you.

This makes a lot of sense, as our flight rates on the flights to Africa are excellent. It also allows us to make use of low add-on rates for internal flights within Africa, which we can link to your international ticket. Nonetheless, to make connections with your flight to Africa, you need to have more than enough turn-around time in London.

2) You organise your own flights USA -> Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe -> USA, and inform us of your flight carriers and times.
Expert Africa arranges your travels in Zimbabwe for you, including any road transfers within Zimbabwe.

This is likely to be the best way if you want to fly straight from North America – e.g. on the flights which link New York and Jo'burg. Note that if you book your own flights to Jo'burg, then you should also try to book any connecting flights within Africa at the same time, and with the same travel agent / airline. If you make sure that these connections are on the same tickets, booked at the same time, then this will give you considerably protection in the unlikely event that one of your flights gets delayed, or cancelled, or its time changes before departure. Then the airlines involved will usually be responsible for helping you to complete your journey, and you won't be left with two separate, non-connecting flights.
