Zimbabwe Images

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.

This page attempts to show some broader images of the country of Zimbabwe, a landlocked country with a tropical environment. Previously a popular tourist attraction with splendours such as the Victoria Falls, today Zimbabwe is rarely seen by the outside world as it continues to be largely spurned by the international community. 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.

Zimmbabwe TopographyTake 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. History lovers will also enjoy the Great Zimbabwe Ruins 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, one of the worst being in 2008 when 4000 died. After you've checked out this video why not visit the map of Zimbabwe on our profile pages and zoom in on further images of interest.
