Attractions from Zimbabwe

Matobo National Park (Bulawayo)
This National Park is situated not far from Bulawayo. Here, it is possible to see exciting rock formations with prehistoric cave paintings. Cecil Rhodes, who gave name to Rhodesia, as Zimbabwe was called until the country freed itself from Great Britain, is buried in the area on a granite rocky summit called Malindidzimu. The word means, "view to the world" and is considered to be the best vantage point in Zimbabwe.
The cultural centre: Mzilikazi Arts and Crafts Centre (Bulawayo)
This cultural centre is situated a little outside the city. Here, local forms of art are represented in the shape of beautiful sculptures, plaited baskets, ceramics, pearl jewellery and wooden works made by the local inhabitants. If you would like to bring some local history back home as a memory, this is where you should buy it.
African Unity Park (Harare)
In this park, it is possible to buy a number of tropical flowers at reasonable prices by the many trades people. Other than that, you will get lots of sense impressions from all the wonderful mixes of colours in flowers and plants at the stalls of the flower trades people.
Mbane Musika Market (Harare)
It is a market that has everything you can dream of in food, clothing, herbs, medicine and local works of art and at lower prices than in the shops.
National Gallery of Zimbabwe (Harare)
This museum is one of the best places to see the cultural history and works of art of Zimbabwe. There are also quite a few paintings and sculptures from the colonial time.
Animal life in Hwange National Park (Zimbabwe)
The rich animal life and the 27,000 elephants are the largest attractions in the area.
Great Zimbabwe National Monument (Zimbabwe)
Next after the pyramids in Egypt, this is the largest collection of ruins situated in one place in Africa. It is the remains of a town state called Munhumatapa, which bloomed in the period between the 13th and the 15th century, when gold was traded. The ruins are large rock buildings, which shine by the exquisiteness of the craft.
Mount Selinda (Zimbabwe)
Chirinda Forest Reserve is situated above the coffee plantations in the eastern highland. Chirinda Forest Reserve is the most southerly tropical rain forest in Africa. The Big Tree Route is the most popular walking route, which, funny enough, also leads to the biggest tree in Zimbabwe. This tree is 1,000 years old and is more than 66 metres tall and 15 metres wide.
Nyanga National Park (Zimbabwe)
Mount Nyangani is situated in this park and is one of the tallest vantage points in Zimbabwe. Grass steppes, forest areas, rocks and waterfalls make the old country place of Cecil Rhodes a popular tourist target. The park's large lake is popular for trout fishing.
Tengenenge Farm (Zimbabwe)
Tom Blomefield built this farm in northern Zimbabwe with the money he got from his share in the chromium mines of Zimbabwe. Being a huge patron of art, he collected over 17,000 different sculptures in a park on his land during his lifetime. Furthermore, the farm houses many contemporary African works of art, and artists living on the site maintain it. It is possible to stay on the farm, but it is quite expensive.
