Zimbabwe Satellite Map

Zimbabwe occupies a total area of 390,757 square kilometers (150,872 sq mi). In comparison, it’s smaller than Morocco but larger than the Republic of Congo.  The country lies in the southern hemisphere between latitudes 15°S and 23°S so its climate is mostly temperate and subtropical.

Zimbabwe is home to two World Heritage Sites – Victoria Falls and Mana Pools. First, Victoria Falls is the world’s largest waterfall in the sheer volume of water falling and is situated directly on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Secondly, Mana Pools National Park is a wetland area during the rainy season and attracts large animals in search of water.
