A wildlife park you can have to yourself
Feb 2020 • Family
Went here with the kids on a day trip from Harare. Had a land cruiser. Would not have been happy without a 4wd. We did self drive. Probably should have hired a guide so we could see rhinos (we didn’t see them). Had fun by ourselves though and saw lots of other stuff. Had a lovely picnic at bushman’s point. Facilities are a bit run down but far cheaper than private well maintained parks so you get what you pay for. We also had the place largely to ourselves mid week and that was novel. The attached map would be handy (we only got it at the end).

Hidden Gem - beautiful wildlife experience close to Harare , a MUST-Do!
Sep 2019
Visit Zimparks office in town ahead of your trip to book a walk or just arrive early on a weekend and book a walk at the Main Camp in the wardens office - its wonderful, so inexpensive and worth every penny you will get close to incredible wildlife in an authentic bush setting - while also supporting National Parks. We saw rhino, giraffe, zebra and so much more

Nice day out
Dec 2019 • Family
Hi, lovely place to go for a day out. You are on your own to find your way round and we were lucky enough to already have a map as they had none available. Some loops were inaccessible and picnic areas had a bit of rubbish around. Some good sightings - eagles, monkey, impala, zebra and ostrich. Didn't see rhino but they are around.

Ideal for bootcamps
Dec 2018 • Family
The roads are not good especially during rainy season ,so an off road vehicle is a must.A good place to breathe some fresh air from the polluted capital city.You can chill by the lake fishing.and games to play ideal for bootcamps.I enjoyed a our game drive.animals giraffes,rhinos,warthog,ostrich and many more.It was worth our $3 entrance fee.

A wonderful small gamepark
May 2018 • Family
This small but wonderful gamepark is close to Harare and yet gives one the feeling of being far away. As a family we visited the place regularly over a span of many years and it is still a great place to visit. Unfortunately the nearby Lion and Cheetah park and the snake park have become rather run down so it's based to just visit the gamepark.

Excellent for a day out
Nov 2018 • Couples

Well worth a visit with the family or friends.

There are lots of game and some wonderful bird life.

Take a picnic but would suggest you avoid the actual picnic sites and find a shady tree to park under

Good for one day visit, not for weekend
Jul 2018 • Business
Not far from Harare. It is possible to find there crocodiles, girafes, rhinocers and autriches. You will need 4x4 wheals drive car. It is for 10 $ for foreigners. There is just one stand with drinks and snacks. Not always open. You could pay just 20$ for double room in chaletes or 70$ for a lodge. It is poorly equiped. Bathrooms are in poor quality. Doesn’t worth zo pay.

Beauty close to town
Jan 2018 • Family
A really beautiful place to go. Fun for the whole family. One of my favourite places in the country. So much to see. Such a beautiful environment and really close to town. What a way to spend quality family time.

Keep looking!
May 2018 • Friends
Keep looking for the animals and you will be rewarded. After a long morning looking for the Rhino, we were rewarded by finding 2 sleeping on the road. Definitely worth waiting! Even if you miss them, the other flora and fauna are worth the drive.
