Land of Strangers: Khami World Heritage Site

Located a short driving distance from Bulawayo, Khami World Heritage Site is the second largest stone-built city in Zimbabwe. Built at the end of Great Zimbabwe’s reign, Khami ruled western Zimbabwe and eastern Zimbabwe for decades before being destroyed in a civil war in the late 1600s. At its peak, it was home to at least 8,000 people, who controlled the local gold, metals agricultural and ivory industries and traded with the outside world. The site is extensive, with impressive terraces and platforms built along the Khami River. Good bird watching along the river too. Full and half day tours are offered.
