Newlands , Harare, Zimbabwe

About the tour

Spread out along the side of the road, this market comprises vendors selling metal and stone Shona sculpture among other handicrafts. Many of them have been greatly affected by Covid -19 but during this tour we will still feel their engaging energy as they show us some things on sale and maybe we will buy something eye catching. See how the arts and Crafts in Zimbabwe differ in originality, background and expression!

The roadside sculpture stall in Harare in north-eastern Zimbabwe shows the innovative and creative side of the crafts people there. The tour guides at Adventure Horizons were so enthusiastic showing us everything with such haste, snapshots needed to be very quick, or you’d miss out. Neverless, with a fast finger and keen eye the African culture makes for amazing snapshots. The tour was worth taking. Lots of unusual statues made from recycled remnants were amazing.
