A Capital City with 


Capital city Harare, with its jacaranda tree lined boulevards and buzzing entertainment scene, has no trouble captivating the hearts of its visitors. Visit the one million plus township of Mbare and its lively wholesale craft market, then hop on a minibus to the city centre to catch a concert with one of Zimbabwe's many accomplished music stars including Jah Prayzah and Ammara Brown. 

If possible, try to visit Harare around April/May to catch the annual 6-day arts and culture festival, Harare International Festival of Arts  (H.I.F.A). Take in one of many African and international artists, shop for fine arts and crafts, and revel in the close-knit community of artists that has come to be seen as an important symbol of Zimbabwe's ability to unify and endure.
