The National Trust of Zimbabwe
To be the custodians of those properties and sites of cultural heritage and natural beauty which we hold in trust and to maintain and manage them for the benefit and enjoyment of the people of Zimbabwe and our friends now, and as a legacy for future generations.
The National Trust of Zimbabwe was established in 1960 and is involved with the preservation and protection of our heritage. The Trust is modelled on similar lines to those of England, Wales and Northern Ireland with the object of holding and maintaining any properties in trust for the benefit and enjoyment of all the people of Zimbabwe. This includes not only the preservation and protection of lands and buildings of national archaeological, historical or aesthetic interest, but also natural resources, fauna and flora. The list can be extended to incorporate objects and collections of interest as defined above. Also works of art, stamps and literature. These are available to the public for purposes of recreation, entertainment, resort or instruction.
