Trivia: Harare Airport's runway, at 4,725 metres (15,502 ft), is one of the longest in Africa. It compares with Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) in South Africa, whose longest runway measures 4,418 metres (14,495 ft). The reason for this is that both are "hot and high" airports requiring long take-off runs.
