Harare is famous for fine craft work. The city’s Shona soft stone carvers are world famous. But this lively African city offers so much more. The gateway to Victoria Falls and Lake Kariba the city offers charming outdoor cafes, opportunities to watch migrating birds and to get close to lions. It’s a city of parks and churches and Shona choirs singing songs of praise.
