RHODES COTTAGE VIRTUAL TOUR
This is where Cecil John Rhodes, industrialist, imperialist, mining magnate, politician and philanthropist spent his final days. Rhodes was an English-born South African, well known for his contribution to the formation of the sub continent. He was also a co-founder of the De Beers diamond mining company. Rhodes was a staunch believer in British colonialism and used his influence to colonise Mashonaland, which was renamed "Rhodesia". Northern and Southern Rhodesia later became the independent states known today as Zambia and Zimbabwe. He is buried at the burial site he himself chose in the Matopas Hills of Zimbabwe.
