Introduction
Officially known as the Republic of Zimbabwe, this country is located in Southern Africa, just north of South Africa. This landlocked nation is also bordered by Botswana, Zambia, and Mozambique. Zimbabwe officially achieved sovereignty from the United Kingdom in 1980, following 14 years as an unrecognized state under the government of Rhodesia.

Population and language
The total population of Zimbabwe is approximately 12 million. Approximately 85% are Christian; many Zimbabweans hold religious beliefs combining Christian and indigenous beliefs. The majority ethnic group is the Bantu-speaking Shona, comprising 70%. The Ndebele comprise 20% of the population. White Zimbabweans make up less than 1% of the population. The main languages spoken here are Shona, Sindebele, and English. In 2006, the country had the lowest life expectancy for the world; according to the UN World Health Organization, the life expectancy for men was 37 years and for women 34 years.

Major cities and tourist destinations
The largest cities in Zimbabwe are Harare (1.5 million residents), Bulawayo (700,000 residents), and Chitungwiza (340,000 residents). The current political and economical situation has made Zimbabwe less popular among tourists. The western parts of the country tend to be safer for travelers than the eastern regions, and despite these dangers, Zimbabwe boasts a number of major tourist attractions. Victoria Falls, on the Zambezi River shared with Zambia, is one of the main national parks in Zimbabwe. The country's largest national park, Hwange National Park, is another popular tourist destination for those seeking elephants and other wildlife. Great Zimbabwe, in Masvingo, features the remains of a kingdom that ruled the region in the late Iron Age, thousands of years ago.

Climate
Zimbabwe's climate is tropical and warm. Higher altitudes tend to be cooler. The country experiences a rainy season lasting from November through March.

Economy
The main industries in Zimbabwe are platinum, gold, and diamond mining, agriculture, and tourism. Both agriculture and tourism have been falling in recent years. From 2003 to 2009, the country experienced rampant inflation, rendering the currency nearly worthless. In 2009, the Zimbabwean dollar was suspended.  Trade in the country now takes place in United States dollars and various other currencies, such as the euro and the South African rand. Since 2009, the Zimbabwean economy has been on the rebound, and continues to grow despite political uncertainty. GDP is estimated at $6.4 billion USD, exports at $2.9 billion, and imports at $4.4 billion.

Transportation
There are several major airports in Zimbabwe, the largest of which is in Harare. The international flights are primarily to other African countries. In recent years, several airlines have pulled out of the country over concerns about political and economical turmoil. When traveling in Zimbabwe, know that buses tend to be poorly maintained even by African standards. The condition of the roads, particularly within and between major cities, has improved significantly in recent years. Car hire is among the best ways to travel within Zimbabwe.
