General attractions around Harare

The centre is fairly compact and a brief stroll should include African Unity Square, the Anglican Cathedral, the peaceful and scenic Harare Gardens, the cafeterias and craft shops of First Street Mall and the main attraction of the city - the National Gallery which houses a major collection of African art and specialises in Shona stone sculpture.

The museum has a sculpture garden on the edge of the Harare Gardens where stone pieces are set outside in the open, including the lifesize rhino. Some pieces are for sale at the gallery shop and these can also be purchased in private galleries such as the Matombo Gallery.

One of the most colourful and frenetic sights is the Mbare Market in the suburbs of Harare. This is the nation’s largest and noisiest market situated on the southern outskirts about 10 minutes from the city centre. It is a crowded place and attracts the inevitable pickpockets. You will find all sorts of craft works for sale including baskets, masks, soapstone carvings, spears and beads.

Gemstones are also another must to purchase 

Harare has a very large number of high-quality restaurants.Thai, Indian, Chinese, Creole, Greek, French, Italian...the choice is large

Harare is a sporting paradise. The city and its suburbs have many beautifully-kept world-class golf courses, the best of which offer membership to Meikles guests. Numerous sports clubs offer a wide range of sporting activities from tennis to cricket.

You can visit the world's largest tobacco auction floors and see the sing-song auctioneers selling a bale a minute; you can see the historical highlights of the city, visit gameparks and a lion and cheetah sanctuary, ride an elephant, marvel at 5 000 year old cave paintings.

Mukuvisi Woodlands is the Harare base of the Wildlife Society of Zimbabwe. You can horse ride amongst the wildlife on the 110 hectare game park or take a walking safari. Purchase curios, books and camping equipment here.
