Masvingo, Zimbabwe

Just outside the town of Masvingo, Zimbabwe are The Great Ruins of Zimbabwe.  The are believed to be built some where between 1200 AD and 1500 AD.  Amazing history here, but the power was off in this area, so I was unable to walk through the museum to get more facts on the Ruins themselves.  But the Massive complex was built out of granite cobblestone and is an amazing piece of architecture.

I stayed at The Lodge at the Ancient City.  Designed after The Great Ruins…what a beautiful lodge!

The link below will do a slide show of both the lodge and the Ruins…

I will probably only make it as far as Bulawayo today.  Then will head to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe tomorrow.
