Located 7km from the city centre of Harare along Hillside Road, The Mukuvisi Woodlands are one of Zimbabwe’s national treasures. It provides one of the few remaining large green spaces open to the public in Harare. Over 18 000 school children visit each year.
The objectives of the Mukuvisi Woodlands Association were first defined as:
- To conserve and utilise the Mukuvisi Woodlands;
- To provide and develop facilities for education in the principles and practice of nature conservation, environmental studies and research;
- To encourage the public to appreciate the natural environment.
Mukuvisi Woodlands has succeeded very well in all of these, and continues to succeed, particularly in the area of Conservation Education. Our flagship Eco-Schools Programme is helping to create a new generation of environmentally aware and dedicated children, who understand today’s burning conservation challenges and issues. We offer regular Bush Camps for children, and hold many other educational events. We have a full time Education Officer, plus several university students on attachment doing research and teaching on an on-going basis.
Entry fee to the woodlands :US $4 per adult.
