Zimbabwe Uncovered in 30 Images

Zimbabwe is a country with so much diversity and a wealth of beauty, a fact that has perhaps gone under the radar in light of the last few years of political turmoil within Zimbabwe’s borders.

The media has a way of only reflecting the negative aspects, as let’s face it, disaster sells more than ‘happy-ever-after’. It is true that Zimbabwe as a country has suffered at the hands of its pseudo-dictator: Robert Mugabe. From being a fully literate and burgeoning economy to its present state of financial ruin, Zimbabwe has surely seen better days.

The fact that the media only reports on these sorry state of affairs begs to question: where is the balance then? For out of every bad, there is surely a good aspect lurking.

Unfortunately the media and its predilection for the horrific is the way the world runs, however we do not need to succumb to the negative ways of many media outlets, we at Drive South Africa prefer to see the light at the end of the tunnel; looking at the cup half full instead of half empty, as it were. Accordingly, we have decided to bring to light the best of Zimbabwe, highlighting the amazing vistas, and sheer warm presence of its people and more.
