On we go to visit the iron age ruins of the Royal Palace of Great Zimbabwe with walls 5 meters high and no mortar in sight – Sub-Saharan’s largest and most important stone ruins and a very special archaeological site. Eight soapstone carved birds were found here, depicted on Zimbabwe’s national flag. Our tour ends on arrival in Johannesburg.
