Nice trails, and so peaceful all while being right in the city. Only down side...ticks! You can sometimes see giraffe if you come at feeding time, and they remember to feed them.

I was in Harare for business and popped by for a visit. I took the guided walk with Daniel who lead us by the zebras, impalas, elands, and giraffes. If you are in Africa and do not have time for a real safari tour, this...More

Harare underwhelms, mainly because of the general 3rd world decay and negativity due to subtle political undercurrent. So it’s refreshing to offload with a brisk morning walk in this somewhat unspoiled island of African bush within the city. As a keen birder, went to see...More

You can do a normal walk in the park small section. Or you can do a walking safari where the bigger wildlife are kept. Or I recommend a horse ride safari as you will get closer to the wildlife and not have to walk so much.

I am unsure as I was there during the weekend, but the horse riding is a guided tour only.
