Harare holidays

The capital city of Zimbabwe, Harare, is located high on the country’s central plateaux. It is a city of modern buildings, wide thoroughfares, numerous parks and gardens whose streets are lined with jacaranda trees, benefitting from a warm temperate climate and the prevailing, cooling south easterly breezes. There is a strong appreciation for the city’s cultural and historical heritage and a number of the older buildings have been preserved in the compact city centre. The Mining Pension Fund Building at Central Avenue and Second Street is one example while many more can be found along Robert Mugabe Road between Second Street and Julius Nyerere Way. The city also has a thriving arts scene with a variety of galleries and museums to visit while there are signs of new investment in the city’s general infrastructure and attractions that suffered more recently.
