I finally got my tour of the Great Zimbabwe. The members of the group that wanted to take the tour had to get up pretty early. We went into the area to see the sunrise. It was quite nice. The sun cooperated with us and did a really nice show. We then toured the archeological site where we saw the remains of what is considered the most significant sub-Saharan African civilization of the pre-colonial era. The height of the civilization was 11-1400 A.D. The remains are significant. The people who lived there built some awesome structures. I plan on doing a little more research into the Great Zimbabwe when I get home. I’m surprised that the site isn’t more widely known, but given the political history of the country of Zimbabwe, I can understand why there hasn’t been more activity to gain a better understanding of the site.
