Day Trips in Harare

Edit This
Several short excursions can be made from the capital. The Kopoje site of the Eternal Flame of Independence is on a hill outside of town and offers great vistas. Ewanrigg National Park about a half hour outside of town has impressive gardens filled with aloes and cycads—things are really blooming in July and August. In the suburbs is Chapungu Kraal a reproduction of a 19th-century Shona village—complete with a traditional healer and soothsayer—and performances by traditional dance troupes on weekends. The kraal also holds an art gallery and sculpture gardens. If time permits spend a day at the Lion Park and Lake McIlwaine Game Park to see lions giraffes rhinos and other animals (there’s a snake farm there too). It’s really more like a drive through a zoo than visiting a real reserve and it’s really only for people who aren’t planning on going to larger game parks.
