Did you mean flights from Harare to Johannesburg?

Harare is the capital city of the country of Zimbabwe, and lies in the northeastern part of the country. It is a modern city, with skyscrapers, wide avenues, and pretty green spaces. While many tourists pass through on their way to explore the rest of the country, often on a wildlife safari, there are a few interesting attractions in Harare itself, too. Visitors enjoy the beautiful, landscaped Harare Gardens, The National Gallery of Zimbabwe, and the Mukuvisi Woodlands. Described as “a touch of the wild in the heart of the city” the woodlands are home to a variety of wildlife, including zebras and giraffes.

5. Culture differences and need-to-know

Zimbabwe is now using US dollars for most cash transactions. Following the country’s severe hyperinflation problems, and the abandonment of its national currency, cash is still in short supply and obtaining cash with a foreign bank card can be difficult. Zimbabwe has now introduced bond notes alongside the US dollar, but dollars are still the most practical currency for international visitors to carry. Credit cards are accepted, but not everywhere, so take sufficient cash with you.

A visa is required to enter Zimbabwe, but this can be obtained on arrival.
