Visiting Zimbabwe

The Shona language, primarily in Zimbabwe, is spoken by roughly 11 million people in the world. Even though the Zimbabweans have lost so much, they have remained to stay strong. With the amount of tourists being so small, those who do come can expect royal treatment.

While the fall of Zimbabwe is the world’s main focus, visitors will be surprised to see a very different image of the country. From the absolute wilderness of Mana Pools National Park and the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, to fine dining in Harare or bungee jumping over Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe can offer a spectacular time to any visitor.

Shona-speaking Countries

Shona is also spoken in Mozambique, Zambia and Botswana.

Here are some of the basic Shona phrases that you will use often:

  • Wakadini zvako? (How are you?)
  • Uve nezuva rakanaka! (Have a nice day!)
  • Chimbuzi chiripi? (Where is the toilet?)
