Free Things to Do

Free Things to Do

Balancing Rocks – Balancing rocks can be found all over the country, but the ones in Epworth, located at a 20-minute drive from Harare, are the most famous. These rocks are the second most popular tourist destination in the country and also find a place in the local currency. Apart from offering a unique insight into wonders of nature that somehow seem to defy gravity, these rocks have also been used to explain the importance of development without compromising on the protection and preservation of the fragile Zimbabwean environment.

Bulawayo – Bulawayo, one of the main commercial and tourist centers of Zimbabwe, is home to the world famous National Museum. It is also located close to other travel highlights such as the Khami ruins, and the Rhodes Matopos National Park, known for its humongous granite boulders.

Zambezi River Rafting trips range from one day to three days. [bookmundi]
