The economy of Zimbabwe is based on mineral exports, gold, agriculture, and tourism. Zimbabwean soil is extremely rich in raw materials.
The mining sector remains very profitable, with some of the world’s largest platinum reserves. The Marange diamond fields, discovered in 2006, are considered the biggest diamond find in over a century in terms of carats.
Zimbabwe is also currently in the process of opening its latest giant platinum mine, Great Dyke Investments. It is estimated that the mine will increase the country’s platinum exports in 2022.
The country is most famous for Victoria Falls, which it shares with Zambia as the falls straddle the countries’ borders.
Living in Zimbabwe is safe, though residents should watch out for petty crimes and scams. Although it is a country in economic disaster with most people living below the poverty line and an inadequate public healthcare system, residents are warm and welcoming, and there are private healthcare options. Harare is a popular choice for expats settling in the country and has several international schools.
