Regarded as the nation's leading commercial, financial, and communications center, Harare attracts tourists with its modern architecture mixed with British colonial influence and traditional African flair.
Step out of Harare with an excursion to Imire: Rhino & Wildlife Conservation in Wedza--about 1h 45 min away. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kuimba Shiri Bird Sanctuary, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Lion and Cheetah Park, stroll around Lake Chivero Recreational Park, and explore the different monuments and memorials at National Heroes Acre.

A vacation in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe's second-largest city, offers a pleasant base for wider explorations of some of the country's national parks and game reserves.
On the 22nd (Mon), explore the striking landscape of Matobo National Park, then take in the dramatic natural features at Matobo Hills, and then don't miss a visit to Cecil Rhode's Burial Place. Keep things going the next day: see the interesting displays at Bulawayo Railway Museum and then learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum.
