What To Expect

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Day 1 Great Zimbabwe Excursion: Travelers depart from Bulawayo @ 7am for Masvingo.

Travellers visit the ancient city of Great Zimbabwe, once Zimbabwe's capital, which is the biggest and most significant stone archeological complex in Sub-Saharan Africa. The ancient city is divided into 3 complexes with different architectural designs, The Hill complex, the Great enclosure and the Valley ruins. Some the activities visitors can participate in include hiking, sightseeing, viewing artefacts, traditional music and indigenous material displays.

Travelers get to see the mining town of Zvishavane, and the beautiful scenic hills along the way from Bulawayo. The town developed as a residential centre for Shabani Mine, which started operations in 1916 to supply asbestos during the First World War. Growth was slow due to poor communications until the railway reached the town in 1928. Although the asbestos mine is the biggest producer of the mineral in Zvishavane, platinum, gold, beryl, chromite, iron ore at Buchwa and huge deposits of diamond at Murowa are also mined in the area. The surrounding area is dominated by cattle ranching, while peasant agriculture is practiced in the nearby communal lands of Mberengwa and Buchwa.
