Culture of Zimbabwe

Culture of Zimbabwe

Discover the traditions and culture of Zimbabwe with tips from our experts.

With its different peoples, it is hard to define one specific cultural norm. However with Shona being the largest ethnic group, you may just see some unique traditional ceremonies as well as some fascinating religious idols and sculptures, during one of our Zimbabwe tours.

The craft culture of Zimbabwe is as impressive as it is distinctive and the craftspeople hold pride in using the most quality materials. Expect to discover baskets that are woven in seamless symmetry, and stools carved from one piece of wood. Sculpture works usually bridge the history between the European settlers and African folklore, including some fascinating poetic license of men becoming beasts!

The official language of Zimbabwe is English, yet the majority (98%) of Zimbabweans would not consider it as their native tongue. When you go on Zimbabwe tours you will notice varied voices, particularly in rural areas where the Bantu languages of Shona and Ndebele dominate.

Top Zimbabwe Travel Tip – Culture

If you like to enjoy an evening of theater then you might be able to include this on your vacation! Theater is popular with the white minority in Zimbabwe, and there is usually a troupe performing in the cities.

WHAT OUR GUESTs SAY

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
