Park
“Whilst not as imposing as the stone structures in Great Zimbabwe (the more famous predecessor), Khami is more picturesque and well worth a visit. A 30-minute drive from Bulawayo, Khami is a ruined city that was once the capital of the Kingdom of Butua of the Torwa Dynasty. Comprised of terraced stone walls and narrow passageways, it has the longest decorated wall of its kind. Watch out for the baboons, especially if you bring a picnic. A national monument and UNESCO World Heritage Site, visitors can wander around the site on several walking trails to take in their architecture, enjoy bird watching (Khami Dam has the best spot)- and visit the small museum. Non-resident fees: $10-15.”

“You'll see a good selection of wildlife, including rhino, antelope (impala, kudu, waterbuck, sable and nyala if you are lucky), wildebeest (also called "gnus") ostrich, giraffe, baboons and vervet monkies. Good birdlife too - fish eagles galore, egrets, plovers, kingfishers, herons, shrikes, weaver birds etc. There are some cave paintings and rustic picnic spots too, as well as a MOTH shrine, commemorating people who fought in the great wars. Note: there are no large cats in the park, but there is a privately run lion and cheetah park a few kms away. ”
