Zimbabwe Parliament Queen Victoria Museum Queen Victoria National Library National Art Gallery - houses a valuable and interesting national collection but also hosts travelling international exhibitions and has a permanent display of some superb stone carvings by local Shona people. National Archives - see the valuable collection of rare Rhodesiana and Africana in the form of diaries, note-books and reports of famous missionaries and explorers. Not to be missed is the famous painting of the Victoria Falls by Thomas Baines, the first artist to paint the Falls, as well as the less well-known but excellent painting of the same subject by EH Holder. Chapungu sculpture park Vhukutiwa Sculpture Garden National Botanical Garden - development of this garden only began in 1962. To date more than 900 species of wild trees and shrubs from all over the country flourish here. Larvon Bird Gardens Lion and cheetah park Lake Chivero Mukuvisi Woodlands - when travelling just a little to the east of Harare, one will find 227 ha of natural woodland on the banks of the small Mukuvisi stream. Escape from the hustle and bustle of Harare's CBD and explore this magnificent area on foot in the company of a guide, or on horseback. Bird-watchers will be pleased to know that more than 230 species of bird occur here, including the shy narina trogon, African finfoot and Ayres hawk eagle. Botanists will enjoy this walk as they will be able to identify no less than 300 species of trees and shrubs that naturally occur in the area. Just less than 50 per cent of these woodlands is isolated by an electrified fence, creating a safe haven for a wide range of game species such as giraffe, zebra, impala, tsessebe, wildebeest, bushbuck, steenbuck, reedbuck and eland. The smaller remaining part of this popular tourist destination houses the head offices of some of Zimbawe's most important conservation bodies, namely The Wildlife Society, The Zambezi Society and Campfire. The best mode of transport for tourists is the commuter omnibus - the cheapest and most reliable way to get from A to B. The ever-present sedan taxis are really expensive and not a good option.
