The ruins of Great Zimbabwe lie in the southeastern hills of Zimbabwe near Lake Mutirikwe and the town of Masvingo. The monument was built by ancestors of the Shona people from the 11th until the 14th century and at its peak, could have housed up to 18,000 people. It is recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
If you are taking public transport...which I did...be prepared to spend hours waiting for a local bus which will be packed and then there is a long walk to get to the ruins. Wear breathable clothes, comfortable shoes and plenty of bottled water. Hire a guide or bring a good guidebook. There are hotels nearby.
