About Harare

Harare is a busy working African city but it's also a city that is attractive and well designed with wide avenues and numerous open spaces and parks. Situated high on Zimbabwe's central plateau the air feels crisp and clear and whilst many will not want to spend extensive time in the city, it is certainly pleasant for an overnight stop.

Flowers, shrubs, and trees are in abundance and when the jacaranda trees are in full bloom (September and October) the city is full of purple blooms.

With a collection of comfortable hotels and guesthouses and some excellent restaurants, a night in Harare is invariably an enjoyable experience. Zimbabwe is known for its beautiful craftwork and a fun way to spend an afternoon is browsing through the curio stalls admiring the basketry, carvings, and intricate beadwork on offer.

Best time to visit

The popular tourist seasons are either the spring (September- December) before the summer sets in, or in the summer (January-April) itself. Harare enjoys a steady climate throughout the year. Since it’s on an elevation, the months between June and August see some cold temperatures where it can drop to the single digits (Celsius).


There are various places of interest to explore, such as the Botanical Gardens which have more than 900 species of trees and shrubs from all over the country.
