The airport is conveniently located around 12km away from the city centre and there are a couple of options available to get there. You can find taxis from outside of the arrivals Terminal but make sure you agree on the price before you get in. Bus services are also available and they are a fraction of the price so unless you have lots of luggage or if there are a few of you to split the cost of the taxi, a bus is a better option. Lastly, once you have booked your flights to Zimbabwe, it’s worth trying to see if any hotels provide airport transfers in with the price as this will save you time and money.
