Lonely Planet review for Mukuvisi Woodlands
The nearest thing to a zoo in Harare is the Mukuvisi Woodlands, also given the trendy title of 'environmental centre'. Two-thirds of this 265-hectare woodland reserve, 7km east of the city centre, is natural msasa parkland, ideal for picnics, walking and bird-watching. The remaining area is a wildlife park where antelopes, zebras, giraffes and warthogs roam free.
Mukuvisi is at its best when there are special events on such as lectures or family days, which are advertised via banners around town.
