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.
