Scenic and tranquil - a real gem so close to Harare. Great for hiking, bike riding, driving, game viewing. New roads opened up and game is flourishing. Accommodation and camping facilities are great. Chalets have everything needed.

We throughly enjoyed our week in this park, cramming in as much hiking and birding as we could, with the bonus of a number of great caches to find - and we mostly had the place to ourselve!

A fun weekend away camping with the family. We wallowed in the natural pools in front of the campsite and went for a game drive (didn't see much). It was VERY hot.
