Since Wild is Life was closed for the afternoon my colleague and I headed here. It is a $5 entry fee. I'll start with the grounds first. It's very outdated and sad. The bird enclosure is full of stressed out parrots- losing their fur, acting...More

A simple horse ride for as little as 15usd of the park. Basic history of Zimbabwe in the middle of Harare. Small cafe for your light meal.

Enjoyed this great woodland so close to the city. Watched different species of birds. Saw herds of Zebra giraffes and deer. Later on saw the crocodiles. Everywhere looked so green & vibrant as it was the rainy season.

As mentioned elsewhere there are several marked walking tours, which I did not try. The park is open to the public for. a $5 fee. Horseback tours (guided) are extra. I believe you can arrange a guided walk.
