We were a group of 9 adults, arriving approx 10 am and departing after 3 pm Saturday 24th December 2022.
After wandering around the gift shops, we paid our $5 each entry into the woodlands.
We walked around the area nearest to the entrance including the viewing platform before we stopped for lunch outside on a long table & bench at the onsite coffee shop / restaurant about midday.
Once we had filled ourselves, we made our way back to the viewing platform for the 2pm feeding of the animals around the waterhole.
Afterwards, we wondered around some more but did not partake is the multi 3 - 10 kilometer walk options available (for free).
It was a lovely day out with friends, enjoying the sunshine, animals and the onsite amenities.

We opted to see more wild animals while staying in Harare, and this Nature Reserve was the closest. It was the rainy season so was very quiet. We went on a walking tour with two of the interns. They have Giraffe’s, Zebra’s , Antelopes. We didn’t see any others as we were told they were the other side of the reserve. This is a rare woodland in the middle of a city and is non profit, managed by a handful of staff and volunteers. If you are in the city and have the time, it’s worthwhile going to support it.

I've been here twice. There are crocs, zebras, impala, giraffes, and bush buck. Bring binoculars because you will want them to see the birds. Otherwise, just enjoy walking in nature and looking at everything. It's a nice bit of nature inside the city. If you don't have time for going in, you can still see the giraffes and zebras from the road sometimes!

What should be a pleasant Sunday morning experience today turned into a complete nightmare after having got lost today. Despite assurances to the contrary on entering the complex after querying the signage system we where assured all was in full working order. We chose the 5 k route as we had a commitment to meet which we have now missed. We ended up walking 11.02km and going round twice, picking up other lost people on our way. Only when we phoned did someone eventually come to our rescue.
Had we been elderly or pregnant or walking with small children this could have been catastrophic.
I suggest someone in your organization takes this seriously and spends some of the entrance fee on clear signposting ( colour coding alone on old trees is not sufficient.)
Arrows and numbers and and clear signage in English and Shona Is what is needed. It’s not rocket science.
Please wake up and spend some money on making this a top activity for Harare that it clearly once was.
Would not recommend.

Great woodland within Harare. Having only one free weekend in Harare amd limiter time, this was a great place to visit. Easy to find and well priced. The trails are well marked and the staff friendly. I hired a bike for $5 and had fun doing the 10km loop. There was a heavy downpour but it didn't prevent my enjoyment. The highlight was being close to some Zebras and Eland who were hanging out close to the track.

A great little reserve, not 5Km from the centre of Harare. Entrance is free to OAPs like me. Loads of interesting birds & insects, in addition to the zebra, giraffe, eland & impala that roam the area.

Judith was very helpful with her local knowledge and friendly in the gift shop

The Rangers in the woodlands were helpful and knowledgable.

The whole area is well maintained / kept clean off litter , the different colour coded routes are well signed on various trees

The observation post gives a great view of the animals grazing around the waters edge with excellent photo opportunities.

My 3rd visit in 7 months from overseas as it makes a good day out as an individual or group .

We heard there aren't many animals to see so we were a bit skeptical. In the end, it was totally worth going. It is super close to city center, the staff is friendly and there are quite a few things to see. Ideally you should go in the morning to see more animals. We were after 3 PM, but still saw quite a few during the quick bushwalk. The guides were very informative and we got very close to giraffes and zebras, while also seeing a few other animals. Also we saw tortoises, birds and all sorts of other wildlife. Overall, a very good visit, but better go in the morning.
