A long time ago the country was enshrined in darkness. A few San people roamed all over the country. They left beautiful rock paintings in their bedrooms. Many of these can still be seen today.

2000 years ago, the Bantu people arrived from the grasslands of Tanzania. They created the first Kingdoms and built huge houses of stone.

Thereafter, in 1840, the Matabele people settled in the Southwest. This migration added some diversity to the population.


In 1850 the first British colonialist arrived. They developed the railways system and introduced

electricity. They took the land from the locals. They messed up everything for the next 120 years.


In 1980 the oppressed people liberated themselves and got the political power.

In 2000 they kicked the white people from their farms.

In the meantime, the Chinese came in big numbers and never left.


IN 2017 the liberated felt oppressed again and re-liberated themselves using the army.

In 2018 the new president took over the Presidency using an Excel-sheet,

Soon after a new darkness was introduced for 18 hours per day.

Meanwhile thousands of people currently visit Zimbabwe.  They try to find out more about its amazing history, its rich culture and they go on safari  to watch giraffes and lions.

We, at Nyati Travel are keen to assist them.
