The rock paintings at Diana’s Vow, some 170 km east of Harare on the way to the Eastern Highlands, are not in a cave, but merely under an overhanging rock. They are easily reached, and worth the detour. Although the painted area is quite small, the quality of the images, the detail and the colour settings, are better than most other Zimbabwe paintings. Material found under the overhang has been dated to 500-1000 years ago, relatively recent.
