Great Zimbabwe Ruins The Great Zimbabwe ruins are the largest collection of ruins in Africa south of the Sahara.
Located in the heart of southern Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers, they are testament to a culture of great wealth and great architectural skill.
Built between the 11th and 15th centuries, Great Zimbabwe was home to a cattle-herding people who also became adept at metal-working.
Out of all these, the ruins of Great Zimbabwe are the largest.
By the 16th century, when the Portuguese arrived in southern Africa, Great Zimbabwe had fallen into obscurity.
