Harare

Harare is the capital city of Zimbabwe and lies in the northeast of the country, some 700km east of Victoria Falls and 1123km from Johannesburg, South Africa. It was renamed Harare on the second anniversary of independence, and there are numerous attractions that celebrate the country’s heritage, including the National Heroes Acre.

It receives more than the national rainfall average and its lofty heights are much cooler. The vegetation is lush and the terrain is more severe, with three mountain ranges to explore. This all means that the fauna and flora are very different, offering nature enthusiasts numerous opportunities for hiking, horse riding, fishing, and golf. The area is renowned in Africa for the diversity of birds, with many travelling to the area hoping to add rare species to their checklists.

Plan Your Trip

Harare generally has a very relaxed air about it, with wide avenues lined with colourful vegetation. Tourists are, however, advised to stay clear of the State House precinct. While the country has endured economic difficulties recently, the city boasts some excellent restaurants, museums, and galleries, along with a good selection of accommodation, making it a worthwhile pre- or post-safari stopover.
