Wild Is Life Grand Zimbabwe
A wildlife sanctuary for local animal species, and it is located near to Harare’s International Airport. Some of the animals you’re likely to see here are baby elephants, towering giraffes, roaring lions and speedy cheetahs. Wild Is life makes for an unforgettable afternoon and showcases how a caring rescue operation respectfully treats animals before releasing them back into the wild.
Thetford Game Reserve
The game reserve was founded with the objective of providing a safe space for animals to breed, and it now houses many diverse species including Buffalo, Giraffes, Impalas, Zebras and Rhinos.
The Lion and Cheetah Park & Snake World
Situated only 30 minutes outside of Harare, the Lion & Cheetah Park houses big game, Lions and deadly Snakes, and is also the home for Zebras, Impalas and Wildebeest. If you crave extra adventure take a turn through the Drive-Through Lion Enclosure, with windows up of course, and experience these majestic mammals up close.
Chapungu Stone Sculptures
Located in Harare’s Msasa Park suburb, the park was created in 1970 as a venue to showcase local stone sculpture and art. The project, started by architect Roy Guthrie, has flourished to become perhaps the most prominent exhibition of Zimbabwean stone sculpture in existence.
The National Heroes Acre
The National Heroes Acre was set up after Zimbabwe’s war of liberation to honour and commemorate the liberation war fighters. Every year it’s the central venue for the annual independence holiday and celebrations, a spectacle which features a state fanfare and various celebrity personalities. On a private visit you’ll get the chance to explore the museum and uncover the ornaments here much more closely. There are shrines for many of the famous liberation war fighters, and some noteworthy sights like the ‘tomb of the unknown soldier’.
