The National Archives of Zimbabwe are the national archives of Zimbabwe. They are located in Harare.[1]

They were created by a law of 1935, and have been known by their present name since the National Archives Act 1936. They include the archives of the former Southern Rhodesia, and are formed of a network of five regional archives divided into eight provinces. From 1953-1963, they were the central repository of the National Archives of Rhodesia and Nyasaland.
