Welcome to Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe’s culture dates as far back as the Pre-Middle Stone Age! The history of Zimbabwe is deep-rooted in culture through the abundance of rock art and ruins that bear witness to the ancient cultures and traditions of Zimbabwe’s ancestors.  Bordered by Zambia, Mozambique, South Africa, Botswana and Namibia, the country of Zimbabwe is tucked away in the Southern parts of Africa and contains many national heritage parks such as Hwange National Park.  Many of Zimbabwe’s national parks contain Africa’s exclusive wildlife such as elephants, lions, leopards and buffalos.  On guided hikes and tours, you’ll lovely be able to catch a glimpse of these animals as well as rhinos, cheetahs, and the samango monkeys.

 

Zimbabwe’s cuisine includes world-wide influences from Asia, India, the Middle East and Europe.  The country’s prime dish is Sadza – a type of cornmeal, cooked slowly until it thickens, and often eaten with relish (a kind of vegetable stew).  Aside from Sadza, traditionial foods can include butternut squash, gem squash, pumpkin leaves, cucumbers and avocados.
