Women’s University in Africa is cited in Harare. Another university located in this city is the University of Zimbabwe.

Harare is the capital and most populous city of Zimbabwe. The city was founded in 1890 as Salisbury, by the Pioneer Column, a military volunteer force of settlers organized by Cecil Rhodes. It was named by Lord Salisbury, then British prime minister.
The name Harare is derived from that of the outcast Chief Neharawe, who, with his people, occupied the at the time the Pioneer Column arrived and seized the land.
The city was created as a municipality in 1897 and developed after the arrival of the railway from the port of Beira in Mozambique, becoming a market and mining centre. It was chartered as a city in 1935.
It was not until 18 April 1980 that the country was internationally recognized as independent as the Republic of Zimbabwe. The name was changed to Harare in 1982 to celebrate the second anniversary of independence.
The total population of Harare is just over 1.5 million. The climate in Harare is a subtropical highland climate, and average annual temperatures go from 12.3°C to 25.5°C.
Harare is the centre of Zimbabwe’s industry and commerce, and also the focal point for the distribution of agricultural produce from the surrounding area, particularly tobacco.

The city offers several sights for tourists like the Chiremba Balancing Rocks, the National Heroes’ Acre, the Surrey Pies, and the Bushman Rock Safaris; part winery, part game reserve, part polo field, and a part boutique lodge.
