The botanical grounds in Harare, is a refreshing experience. The grounds and the trees are well kept and visiting them gives you a refreshing experience. But some areas need more touch ups to improve their appearance and aesthetic value.

Often the park is quite and it is great for a jog or walking the dog. It has lovely old trees and a small cafe in the middle of the park that serves basic sandwiches, instant coffee and tea.
