Unpaved roads are more common throughout the county than anything else

Current events

First one:

A woman named,Tarisai Musandidaro, age 25, accepted a ride from some strangers. Everything seemed okay until they stopped by some bushes.
The drivers Began dragging her behind the bushes. While they were about to do something to the woman a snake bit one of the men. This gave tarisai enough time to escape. The snake is believed to be a black mamba.

Second one:

Zimbabwe has decided to donate 2,000 animals to Mozambique.
In hopes to strike a change in the country's animal conservation. And to help them with their zoos. There should be positive results in the battle against poaching, which is also a problem in Zimbabwe.

Why people should come to zimbabwe.

Scenery

This country has beyond beautiful scenery and animals to see. There are breath taking views everywhere.

The people.

It is believed that Zimbabwe has the most friendly people you could ever meet.

You will feel welcome as you are encouraged to participate in cultural activities.

A lot of people dance in zimbabwe as well as sing.

The experience

If you go to a country like Zimbabwe, you will be able to say you went and you will seem pretty cool. You will be able to tell your future grandchildren that you went to Africa.

Life as a zimbabwean teenager.

Zimbabwean kids go to school like we do. They take similar classes, such as science, math, PE/health, language classes, and artistic classes.

Peer pressure and bullying is a part of their lives just like ours.

For fun they go do the same things we do. They watch movies, play outside, and listen to music. The biggest music genre is rap and hip hop. They have fun like we do just with less advanced technology.
