Harare is the capital city of Zimbabwe, situated in the north east of the country in the heart of Mashonaland. This lively, well-designed city is known for its numerous fine dining restaurants, museums, craft markets and bars, as well as its many historical buildings juxtaposed with modern skyscrapers positioned along the flamboyant tree-lined roads.

While its proximity to some of Zimbabwe’s prime wildlife areas is one of Harare’s biggest draw cards, this bustling metropolis is much more than just a stopover for travellers en-route to Zimbabwe’s other various attractions.
