Ziwa National Monument is part of the Tentative list of Zimbabwe in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Ziwa National Monument contains the remains of a late Iron Age agricultural settlement dating to the 15th century, and includes archaeological evidence of human occupation from all major periods in Zimbabwe’s archaeological sequence, starting from the Stone Age. This approximately 3300 hectare site consists of a landscape marked by stone terraces and fields, hill forts, pit structures, stone enclosures, and iron smelting and forging furnaces. The settlement at Ziwa remained occupied until the early 18th century.
