Gokomere

Gokomere is a place in Zimbabwe, sixteen km from Masvingo known for its rock art dating from 300 to 650 AD. The ancient Bantu people who inhabited the area of Great Zimbabwe around the 4th century AD probably built the complex between 1000 and 1200 AD. The Gokomere traded via ancient trading routes over the Chimanimani mountains on the current Zimbabwe / Mozambique border with the Swahili civilization on the Kenyan and Tanzanian coast. This group gave rise to the maShona and the waRozwi tribes.
