A pioneer party, led by Major and Mrs Pascoe, set out from Kimberley, South Africa, on 5 May 1891 in a wagon drawn by 18 oxen, arriving in Fort Salisbury on 18 November. The then Rhodesia became a separate territory on 1 May 1931.

In 2015, the growing work in Madagascar was placed under the care of Zimbabwe Territory and was officially inaugurated on 28 October 2016.

The Salvation Army was officially recognised in Botswana in 1997 and on 1 April 2017 the territory was renamed the Zimbabwe and Botswana Territory.
