Zimbabwe is a landlocked sovereign state located in southern Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers. The name "Zimbabwe" is based on a Shona term for Great Zimbabwe, an ancient ruined city in the country's south-east whose remains are now a protected site.
Most of the country is elevated, consisting of a central plateau (high veld) stretching from the southwest northwards with altitudes between 1,000 and 1,600 m. The country's extreme east is mountainous, this area being known as the Eastern Highlands. Zimbabwe has a tropical climate with many local variations.
