Hi, Gabs...is a developed city/town with almost everything you would need. Most shop brands found in SA, can be found here...its an ideal stop over on your way to the north or or before you hit the trans kalahari strip...its relatively safe and relaxed. Enjoy it...i did.
As im an overlander, harare is always a pass thru, or we tend to stay with friends. I prefer the eastern parts of Zim,... Chimanimani, Masvingo....Harare is a good city, big in comparison to other african countries i've visited. Lots to see and do, and relatively safe. English widely spoken.
