Zimbabwe Images

Images of Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is located in southern Africa and is bordered by South Africa to its south, Botswana to its south-west, Zambia to its north-west and Mozambique to its east. With its population of around twelve and a half million, Zimbabwe is slightly smaller than Japan. When we think of Zimbabwe we tend to think of former Robert Mugabe and his harsh, failing regime that led to a failing state with most living in poverty before he was ousted from power in 2017. This page attempts to show some broader images of Zimbabwe, a landlocked country with a tropical environment. Previously a popular tourist attraction with splendours such as the Victoria Falls, today Zimbabwe is again being seen by the outside world as it once again opens up to the international community, albeit tentatively. Yet there are still many reasons to visit Zimbabwe for the intrepid traveller.

Images to take in include the mighty Zambezi River as it plunges into a narrow gorge before continuing its journey to Lake Kariba, then onto the Mana Pools National Park with its hippos, crocodiles as well as elephants and buffalos. Also visit the Chinhoyi Caves where diving is available for the experienced in Zimbabwe's largest cave structure, a preserve that in history was used as a place of refuge from Ndelebe raiders. Take time to visit the Khami Ruins National Monument, the former capital of the Kingdom of Butua of the Torwa dynasty which arose from the collapse of the Great Zimbabwe Kingdom in the 16th and 17th century. Although now badly damaged by age and fire, the ruins were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986.

Great Zimbabwe Ruins

History lovers will also enjoy the Great Zimbabwe Ruins (above) considered by many to be sub-Saharan Africa's most important and largest stone ruins. Whilst many of these images of Zimbabwe show a beautiful country beware if you go wandering as half the country's population have no sanitation and simply use the bush as their toilet leading to cholera outbreaks. Also be aware of crime and try and go with a tour guide rather than explore by yourself. Most areas outside major conurbations are relatively safe but best not take the risk unless it's required. After you've checked out the images of Zimbabwe video (below) why not use the map of Zimbabwe and zoom in on further images of interest.
