It is believed the Monument was fashioned between 1250 and 1450 AD, from regular rectangular granite blocks skilfully placed one upon the other, without the use of tools.
This World Heritage Site is a unique historical, cultural and archaeological landmark. The Zimbabwe bird, (a national emblem and the subject of its own myths and legends), is to be found here.
Straddling its own grounds and the World Heritage Site is the Great Zimbabwe Hotel, only a short walk away from the Monument itself.
The swimming pool, tennis court and beach volleyball pitch are only a 2 minute walk from the rooms.
