Zimbabwe or as it is officially known, the Republic of Zimbabwe, is a landlocked country in southern portion of Africa. It is located between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers. Zimbabwe borders South Africa to the south, Botswana to the west and southwest, Zambia to the northwest, and Mozambique to the east and northeast. Although it does not border Namibia, less than 200 meters of the Zambezi River separates it from that country.
The capital and largest city is Harare. A country of roughly 13 million people, Zimbabwe has 16 official languages, with English, Shona, and Ndebele being the most commonly used.
Since the 11th century, Zimbabwe has been the site of several organised states and kingdoms, as well as a major route for migration and trade. The British South Africa Company of Cecil Rhodes first demarcated the present territory during the 1890s. It became the self governing British colony of Southern Rhodesia in 1923. In 1965, the conservative white minority government unilaterally declared independence as Rhodesia. The state endured international isolation and a 15 year guerrilla war with black nationalists that culminated in a peace agreement that established universal enfranchisement and sovereignty in April 1980. Zimbabwe then rejoined the Commonwealth of Nations, but withdrew in 2003. Zimbabwe remains a member of the United Nations, the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union (AU), and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) to this day.
Like so many African nations, Zimbabwe is rich in natural beauty and wildlife that attracts visitors from all over the world. With a reasonably healthy tourism industry, Zimbabwe offers tourists a variety of accommodations from hostels through to hotels. The hotels in Zimbabwe range from affordable budget accommodations to world class hotels.
