About
Great Zimbabwe monument is a Unesco World Heritage Site, it’s full of history and provides a perfect day out for visitors in Zimbabwe. It was the capital of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe during the country’s Late Iron Age. Great Zimbabwe served as a royal palace for the Zimbabwean monarch and was used as the seat of political power. One of its most prominent features were the walls, some of which were over five meters high and which were constructed without mortar. There are 200 such sites in southern Africa, such as Bumbusi in Zimbabwe and Manyikeni in Mozambique, with monumental, mortarless walls but none as large and intact as those of Great Zimbabwe.

A big thumbs-up from Peter-Drake of Hexham Australia and his daughter Linda - a teacher at "Queen Elizabeth High School" (QEHS)!!!

We took this trip with our daughter (a chemistry & science teacher at the local "Queen Elizabeth High School") and her fiance.

Excellent value for money. Covers all the bases, and plenty of time to wander on your own.

Highly recommended.
