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 that rock look like' game and taking selfies.

The area is run down, however for me this actually adds to the charm and makes it look rustic.

Like I said, spend 30-40 minutes there, it's great, nothing more than that.

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.

About an hour out from Harare we went with a local family to walk up the gentle slopes. Slightly taken aback by the 10$ charge just to walk up the hill. Follow the yellow arrows were the instructions.
The panoramic views are worth the effort. Also stayed for the sunset and the lovely warm glow casting shadows. Remember that the sun sets quickly so walking back in the dark was interesting - suggest take a torch with you

The park cost $10 US to enter, but absolutely none of that money is used to maintain the grounds from the looks of it. No information is given at all, the office exists merely to take your money. A majority of the rocks have so much brush around them you can't really enjoy the view. You are better off checking out the formations across the street in the local shanty town for free.

10 US Dollars per person to see some rocks? Sorry but that's a joke. Just take some pictures from the main road, or better even, go to Matopos instead and you'll have a much more beautiful setting with wildlife around you for the same price.

Just visited the park. Rock formations are truly awesome. The park itself however is poorly maintained. Sign posts are faded. Grass is ovegrown an roads are narrow and potholed with rocks. Not advisable to go with salon car. Needs 4x4. Attendants provided no history or background. It felt a bit spooky and unsafe. We were quick to leave

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 down which is really sad as it could be a great place for people to visit. There were no guides available apparently, but a lady who worked by the gate came with us and im glad she did. It really has alot of potential and is surrounded by a community. Would be so great to get them involved working and maintaining it. If you have some spare time and you are short on things to do, go and have a look. Make sure you get someone to show where the artwork is.

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 around to see them. When you arrive, a staff member will discuss the driving directions with you and go over the map with you.

Allow an hour or so. It is worth adding to your plans and seeing.

Tip: In some guidebooks, they call it "Epworth Balancing Rocks" while others might call it "Chiremba Balancing Rocks."

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.
