Located about a twenty minute drive from Harare proper, this park is commonly visited with the adjoining Snake Park (the latter being a forgettable experience). I visited with my guide in the late morning during my first full day in the country. The area is...More

A great after business trip 30 minutes out of Harare. Friendly warders and even rock art in close proximity to the road.
