First things first, don't plan an all day visit to this heritage site. For a quick maximum 30-40 minutes visit, this is a good place. The rocks are great and so awesome to see the work of mother nature. Great for playing the 'what does...More

I really wanted to go and see the balancing rocks, so I bugged my husband for us to go. They were pretty cool with some great art work existing on some of the rocks. It is very poorly managed though and it is quite run...More

Was very excited to visit this place before my trip, but extremely saddened by the state of this place at the moment. It has not been conserved well, hardly any distinctive features now. There are small shanties & slum areas developed very close to the...More

The balancing rocks are quite amazing to see. They are beautiful natural works of art as the giant boulders are stacked on top of each other. The park is a bit underfunded so it is not pristine. But it is not too difficult to navigate...More

I loved the way the place made me feel. The heritage from the paintings on the rocks and more. Also a good place to have quiet read or meditation. The rocks great for that. And just a few minutes outside the busy city.

It's $10 to get in. Best to leave about an hour for the visit. There are quite a few rocks to see. Get a guide because there are some cool "Bushmen" paintings on the rocks.

Awesome and amazing natural creation. CHIREMBA balancing rock park will leave you with a wow moment. Money rocks appear on the local currency notes. There are other unique balancing rocks and all have stability despite evidence of natural phenomenon like weathering. A must do activity....More

Magnificent rock formations right outside Harare. Would have been helpful if there were more signage explaining the stories and science behind these rock formations. Also, we missed the bushmen paintings. More signage please!
