Great Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe - South East Zimbabwe

The mysterious ruined city of Great Zimbabwe dates to the 11th to 15th centuries AD and remains the emblem and heart of the nation.

The Unesco World Heritage-listed site provides evidence that ancient Africa reached a level of civilisation not suspected by earlier scholars. The site is divided into several significant ruins with three main areas – Hill Complex, the Valley and the Great Enclosure. You can easily explore the site, or you can arrange a guided tour. The best time to study is dawn and dusk when the sunrise, or sunset, enhances this stunning site.
