Not far from the centre of town (maybe 15 minutes drive max), Mukuvisi Woodlands is a great place to wind down/chill out. No need to plan ahead, just turn up. Great little gift shop as well.

Visited in the morning and had a great time. Beautiful surroundings and very pleasant and helpful staff. Nice cafe. Saw many animals and birds. Including Zebras and giraffes at close quarters.

Second Visit to Mkuvisi Wilderness. This is one the most calming place to be as you wait for your next flight to anywhere in the world. Time to relax as you watch wild animals at close range.

This is home to the best wildlife sanctuary in Zimbabwe. A dash of the finest well behaved animals strewn in the Savannah Plains.

Mukuvisi is the ideal place for a nice stroll amongst nature. The giraffes and antilopes of all sorts look really happy, and the parrots section is wonderful. So nice to see some of them outside the cages. It's a lovely place to visit with families...More

You can do a normal walk in the park small section. Or you can do a walking safari where the bigger wildlife are kept. Or I recommend a horse ride safari as you will get closer to the wildlife and not have to walk so much.

I am unsure as I was there during the weekend, but the horse riding is a guided tour only.
