You will find a strong sense of national pride in Harare, evident in the many galleries and museums that showcase historic relics, literature and art. Check out the National Gallery to see the Shona soft-stone carving and countless examples of ancient Africana culture. The National Botanic Garden is perfect if you love admiring exotic species of flora and fancy a leisurely stroll, but a more exciting treat are the Mukuvisi Woodlands that are home to giraffes, zebras, wildebeest and other wild animals.
Shopping can either be on par with the air conditioned shops of the US and Europe, or you can venture into the chaotic flea markets, where the real treasures can be found. At Mbare, the wares range from cds to furniture, tchotchkes to beautiful handmade jewelry.
Your fun in Harare is sure to work up a healthy appetite, and the local restaurants won't disappoint. Enjoy a meal of traditional sadza (a thick corn paste, much like mashed potato) accompanied by fresh vegetables and succulent roasted meat at one of the charming al fresco cafés on Cork Road, downtown.
