Voice of Travelers to Harare

Free trip to Harare

We had always wanted to visit Africa. We did not know our dreams would come that soon. We registered in Dream trips with my husband recently. This ended up in us having a discounted trip to Harare in Zimbabwe. We got everything else ready for the trip the ticket, visas, and accommodation details. The ticket via British airways took twelve hours with one stop in Egypt. Finally we arrived and we had to sleep in the first day due to jetlag. We chilled in the hotel's bar the first night and had such an amazing time. The second night we went on a tour to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The view was spectacular. The rest of the days were full of laughter and happiness.

Volunteer Africa in Harare

Hi my name is Loki. I am a volunteer in Volunteer Africa. One of our volunteer trips involved going to teach in Harare. I got my air ticket from South African airlines who had discounted air ticket fare negotiated by the volunteer group. We arrived in Harare and began work almost immediately. A ticket would normally cost 20% more than what we paid. We enjoyed interacting with the kids in Harare. Made several trips for donations in the slums around Harare. When everything was done in Harare we had to get back home. We got the return ticket using the same airline who had incredible flight services.
