Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in Southeast Africa, located between Zambia and the Zambezi River. South Africa to the south, Mozambique to the east, and Botswana to the west are its neighbors. Namibia is very close to the Zimbabwean border, since the tripoint between Namibia, Zambia, and Botswana is located in the town of Kazungula (Zambia), just 100 meters from the border with Zimbabwe.

It is somewhat larger than the state of Montana in the United States, with an area of 390,757 km2 (150,872 sq mi), or approximately half the size of Turkey. After declaring its independence from the United Kingdom in 1965 (when it was still known as Rhodesia), Zimbabwe wasn’t officially recognized until April 1980.

English, Shona, and Ndebele are the most widely spoken languages in the country of 14.2 million people (2016 est.).
