The result? Yeah, you get the Z – Zero.

That is what inspired the birth of ZimbOriginal, prompting an exploration, and the desire to help more people interact with the authentic and native Zimbabwe.

For Zimbabweans, our culture, customs and traditions are a huge identifier and unifier, yet conversations relating to those matters remain confined to intimate settings. This, despite the sweeping internet revolution where almost everything and everyone is just a digital encounter away.

Because Zimbabweans are best placed to answer the questions and tell the stories shaping their culture today; Zimbabweans are the experts from whom the content on ZimbOriginal has been sourced.
