Dazzling Harare jacarandas add lustre to magnificent Meikles!

Harare is erupting into a blaze of colour and utmost beauty – it’s jacaranda time! Every year, around the end of September, the city transforms into a mesmerising display of purple-lined streets as the jacaranda trees start to blossom to signal the start of summer.
And among the most iconic views of nature’s glory is from the North Wing of Meikles Hotel that overlooks the historic Africa Unity Square. It’s a photographers’ delight that has provided countless signature images of Meikles Hotel that capture the vivid splash of colour as a backdrop to Zimbabwe’s premier five-star hotel in the city centre.
Harare is often described as among the most beautiful cities in Africa and who can doubt that when the jacarandas and other trees come into bloom.
When visiting Harare we warmly invite you to come and stay at Meikles to enjoy both the impeccable style and service from our gracious 100-year-old hotel but also the beautiful “city of flowering trees.”
