It operates the first leg of its flights from UK to Dubai with its flagship A380 airliners, while Dubai International Airport is suitable for a stopover to shop from its Duty-Free Shopping complex.

It also has the shortest stopovers, as Johannesburg’s O.R Tambo International Airport is a regional hub across Africa. An added attraction is that passengers get to avail a stay at Johannesburg, giving them the chance to meet and greet any relatives they have in the country. Ethiopian Airlines and Kenya Airways are recommended for relatively cheaper airfares compared to all the other airlines.
When to travel and when not to travel to Zimbabwe?
For viewing maximum wildlife for a safari, the season lasts from May to November. The rainy season, which lasts from November to February, has its own advantages, as it is popular for witnessing bird migrations from Guinea, as well as water-sports along the Zambezi River. Visitors of the Victoria Falls should aim to visit in May right after the rainy season ends, when the flowing waters are at their peak. September and October are the peak months, with hot and dry days and cold nights causing mosquitos to lessen from the extreme weather. However, it also causes wildlife to crowd on all watering holes, and Rangers even hold safari festivals for tracking wildlife in this season.
