Harare is the capital and most populous city of Zimbabwe. On the edge of landscaped Harare gardens, the National gallery of Zimbabwe has a large collection of African contemporary art and traditional pieces like baskets, textiles, jewelry and musical instruments. Harare’s attractive, laidback capital is a popular launchpad for 4x4 safari adventures in the country, but it’s a cosmopolitan city that rewards sticking around. You’ll find fantastic examples of local handcrafts, the seemingly precarious natural art of the Epworth Balancing Rocks and wildlife sightings in the Mukuvisi Woodlands, which has bike paths and a bird park.
