Loved this place. You can do the whole place in just an hour or two with breathtaking photos! Take the time to climb on top of some of the rocks. The views are amazing and make for some fun selfies.

Totally brilliant and a 'must see'. These huge rocks balance crazily - try not to breathe or they may fall!

About an hour out from Harare we went with a local family to walk up the gentle slopes. Slightly taken aback by the 10$ charge just to walk up the hill. Follow the yellow arrows were the instructions.
The panoramic views are worth the effort. Also stayed for the sunset and the lovely warm glow casting shadows. Remember that the sun sets quickly so walking back in the dark was interesting - suggest take a torch with you

First things first, don't plan an all day visit to this heritage site. For a quick maximum 30-40 minutes visit, this is a good place. The rocks are great and so awesome to see the work of mother nature. Great for playing the 'what does that rock look like' game and taking selfies.

The area is run down, however for me this actually adds to the charm and makes it look rustic.

Like I said, spend 30-40 minutes there, it's great, nothing more than that.

I really wanted to go and see the balancing rocks, so I bugged my husband for us to go. They were pretty cool with some great art work existing on some of the rocks. It is very poorly managed though and it is quite run down which is really sad as it could be a great place for people to visit. There were no guides available apparently, but a lady who worked by the gate came with us and im glad she did. It really has alot of potential and is surrounded by a community. Would be so great to get them involved working and maintaining it. If you have some spare time and you are short on things to do, go and have a look. Make sure you get someone to show where the artwork is.

Was very excited to visit this place before my trip, but extremely saddened by the state of this place at the moment. It has not been conserved well, hardly any distinctive features now. There are small shanties & slum areas developed very close to the rocks & spoils the entire experience.

The balancing rocks are quite amazing to see. They are beautiful natural works of art as the giant boulders are stacked on top of each other.

The park is a bit underfunded so it is not pristine. But it is not too difficult to navigate around to see them. When you arrive, a staff member will discuss the driving directions with you and go over the map with you.

Allow an hour or so. It is worth adding to your plans and seeing.

Tip: In some guidebooks, they call it "Epworth Balancing Rocks" while others might call it "Chiremba Balancing Rocks."

I loved the way the place made me feel. The heritage from the paintings on the rocks and more. Also a good place to have quiet read or meditation. The rocks great for that. And just a few minutes outside the busy city.
