Great Zimbabwe
is located around 20km to the southeast of the town of Masvingo in the southeast of Zimbabwe.

These substantial ruins are the remnant of a very significant Bantu civilisation dating back to 11th and 15th centuries. They have been adopted as a national monument by the Zimbabwean government and are an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is worth noting that there are hundreds of other smaller ruins spread across the high veld, which are also known as 'zimbabwes'. Their construction methods are unique in African architecture and really important in the context of indigenous African history.

In the old days, when the most common way to access Zimbabwe was to drive north from Johannesburg, Great Zimbabwe used to be a very common and convenient stopover location.

Now that self-driving is far less common, including the area in trips has become much more of a challenge, you really do have to be prepared to go out of your way to get here.

We are therefore very rarely asked to include Great Zimbabwe in trips, it has become something of a niche attraction.

Norma Jeane's Lakeview Resort ... is a simple and reasonably pleasant lakeside lodge, perhaps the best option in the area.
