OUR BUCKET LIST:

Great Zimbabwe

30 km from the city of Masvingo, located in the south-east of the country, are some of the most extraordinary artificial remains in Africa. Made of regular rectangular granite stones, carefully placed on top of each other, they are the ruins of an incredible complex: the city of Great Zimbabwe. The structures were built by indigenous African peoples between 1250 and 1450 AD, considered to be the ancestors of modern Zimbabweans.
