Zimbabwe Flag

Zimbabwe , is a landlocked country located in the southern part of the continent of Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo rivers. It is bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the southwest, Zambia to the northwest and Mozambique to the east. Zimbabwe has three official languages; English; Shona, a Bantu language and Ndebele. Zimbabwe began as a part of the British crown colony of Rhodesia. Today, Zimbabwe is under the control of President Robert Mugabe, who has been in power since the country's long war for independence. His rule has been characterized by economic mismanagement, hyperinflation, and widespread reports of human rights abuses. The collapse of the nation's economy and widespread poverty and unemployment has increased support for Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and his opposition party, Movement for Democratic Change.

The Zimbabwean Music Festival - Harare
The Zimbabwean Music Festival The Zimbabwean Music Festival is an annual celebration of Zimbabwean music and culture. The first festival was organized in Seattle in 1991 by a small committee of former students of the late Dr. Dumisani Maraire, the dynamic Zimbabwean musician who first introduced marimba and mbira music to the Pacific Northwest. In the years since, the festival has moved up and down the west coast, staged by volunteers in Seattle, Eugene, Portland, Victoria, Port Townsend, Seaside (California), Bellingham, and Olympia. Over the course of a decade numerous organizers have put in countless hours of work and made unique permanent contributions to a traveling Zimfest “kit”: decorations which are passed from one committee to the ne...

Arts of Zimbabwe - Harare
Arts of Zimbabwe Traditional arts in Zimbabwe include pottery, basketry, textiles, jewelry, and carving. Among the distinctive qualities are symmetrically patterned woven baskets and stools carved out of a single piece of wood. Shona sculpture in essence has been a fusion of African folklore with European influences. Also, a recurring theme in Zimbabwean art is the metamorphosis of man into beast. Among members of the white minority community, Theatre has a large following, with numerous theatrical companies performing in Zimbabwe's urban areas. Though the country's art is admired by those that know of its existence, several Zimbabwean artists have managed to gain a world audience, to name some world-famous Zimbabwean sculptors we h...

Zimbabwe is a beautiful, temperate land of raw African wilderness and ancient mystery - Harare
Zimbabwe is a beautiful, temperate land of raw African wilderness and ancient mystery Named after the ruined civilization of centuries ago, Zimbabwe evokes images of huge, game-rich plateaus such as the majestic Hwange National Park, the massive Lake Kariba and the incredible Victoria Falls. It also evokes images of social and political chaos, which lead most potential visitors to think a Zimbabwe safari is unsafe. The reality is quite different - although Zimbabwe's cities are unstable, the country's national parks are perfectly safe to visit, as they are located far away from the sites of the instability. Due to Zimbabwe's negative news coverage, game lodges are desperate for occupants and prices are extremely competitive. Whether staying in standard or luxury Zimbabwe accommodation, the low lo...

British Airways to end Zimbabwe flights - Harare
British Airways to end Zimbabwe flights British Airways announced Thursday that it will halt flights to Zimbabwe next month, citing mounting losses on the route as the southern African nation struggles with its worst economic crisis since independence in 1980. With Zimbabwe's international isolation growing, the British airline said in a statement that its three weekly round-trip flights between Harare and London would end Oct. 28. Acute fuel shortages in Zimbabwe have forced the airline to bring in fuel by road and refuel its planes in neighboring countries. Zimbabwe is also suffering acute shortages of food and most other basic goods. It has the world's highest official inflation of nearly 7,000 percent, but independent estimates put the rate c...

Zimbabwe is not a place where you will complain of nothing to do - Harare
Zimbabwe is not a place where you will complain of nothing to do From the archaeological wonders of the Great Zimbabwe National Monument to the raw thrill of a wildlife safari in Hwange National Park, and from the indulgence of a luxury lodge to the adrenalin-pumping excitements of Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River, there is something for everyone. The Eastern Highlands (areas like Nyanga) are well-known as birding hot spots while the Zambezi valley also has rich bird life. Mana Pools - Northern Zimbabwe Over 400 bird species have been recorded. From April to December, African skimmers breed on the exposed sand banks. In September, huge flocks of carmine bee-eaters are joined by flocks of white fronted bee-eaters. Other species to look for along the river include mottle...
