Harare is located on a high altitude position and is thus relatively much cooler than other areas of the region. July is probably the coldest month when temperatures can plummet below freezing point.

Other months are all OK to fly into Harare. September-November is the best time for which travellers can book tickets to Harare. Being a peak season for holidays, airfares can be high.
