Museums in region:


Zimbabwe (named as such from 1980 onwards) was formerly called Southern Rhodesia (1901–1965), Rhodesia (1965–1979), Zimbabwe Rhodesia (1979) and Southern Rhodesia (1979-1980).

For Northern Rhodesia see Zambia.

The Great Dyke is an area of mafic and ultramafic rocks that is 4-11 km wide and 550 km long. It contains significant resources of platinum group elements. It stretches from the Mimosa mine to the Snake's Head area.
