Is your hometown Harare? Explore it like a tourist!
Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, is well known for its friendly people, its extraordinary array of wildlife and of course, its love for sport. But, such is the luck of being spoilt by its beautiful landscapes that the wonderful people from Harare might forget to do some of the things that tourists love most about their city: To explore its awesomeness through the wondering eyes of tourist curiosity.
Of course, while going home is a special time to reconnect with family and friends – and to celebrate a hard-earned break – it may also be an opportunity to sneak in a holiday. A holiday at home! So, why not consider a few Harare outings to make your visit home that little bit more spectacular? Yes, why not be a tourist in your own brilliant Harare and why not fill your days with some hometown wonder?
Here to guide you are some interesting suggestions to make your visit home that little bit more special.
