Landlocked Zimbabwe has a rich cultural heritage that predates the Colonial era but few holidaymakers are heading to one of southern Africa’s most glorious countries.

Zimbabwe grew out of British Colonial Rhodesia and has been ruled since the Rhodesian Bush War by Robert Mugabe. Although the economy is slowly improving, millions of Zimbabweans are still dependent on food aid and disease outbreaks only compound the situation.

It seems crass to promote golf and travel to Zimbabwe but the reality is that golf has been played here since the early white settlers arrived in the 19th century. The first official golf club was founded in Bulawayo in 1895 and there are around 50 golf courses in Zimbabwe today. The best courses are located in Harare and we’ll be keeping a watchful eye on the Zimbabwean situation and fingers crossed hoping things continue to improve.
