Head on for about 10 minutes and you'll see a large granite range on your right. At the sign for Ngomakurira turn right and after about 1km on the dirt take a left at a second sign and park. The path way is up on the right and follow the painted arrows to the cave paintings near to which most of the climbing (also see the topo under maps). Note that you have to pay to enter (USD 4 for a Zimbo and USD 5 for an international as of September 2012).

At the parking pay your entrance fee at the hut. USD 4 for Zimbo's and USD 5 for tourists.

You can pay to camp there, but Harare is so close and the place to get food etc. (there's supermarkets and a mall -Sam Leavy's- on Borrowdale road on the way out of town)
