EXPLORE Bulawayo

The second-largest city in Zimbabwe, and fondly known as the "City of Kings", Bulawayo is characterised by wide tree-lined streets, early Victorian buildings, and a relaxed atmosphere.

It is located in the south-west corner of the country, over 400km from the country’s capital – Harare

Less than an hour's drive from Bulawayo is the well-known Matobo National Park, one of the country's most popular tourist attractions. Here, a 100km² game park boasts a vast array of animals. From white rhinoceros to sable and leopard, it’s game viewing at it’s best. Geographically, the park is dominated by a magnificent, rugged terrain; featuring balancing rocks, and domes. While you are in the area, make sure to make the trek up to World's View, or Malindidzimu, where Cecil John Rhodes, and several other early settlers are buried. 

Lying 22km west of Bulawayo, is one of the country's, and southern Africa's, most extraordinary Late Iron Age ruins- The Khami Ruins. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it forms the basis for a mesmerising day out. 

A haven for injured, orphaned, and abandoned animals and birds, the Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage and Research Centre is 23km south-west of Bulawayo. Established in 1973, Chipangali offers interaction with a wide range of animals through educational tours, feeding viewings, and volunteering opportunities. 

Interestingly, Bulawayo is also the gateway to the Hwange National Park, and The Victoria Falls. So setting up a base in this dynamic city lands you in close proximity to the action.   

Popular attractions in Bulawayo itself include the Mzilikazi Arts and Crafts Centres, The Natural History Museum of Zimbabwe, the Bulawayo Art gallery, and a scattering of cosy coffee shops and lunch spots. 

Accommodation in Bulawayo ranges from lavish safari lodges, to beautiful and enticing guest houses, and more. Choose from some of the best hotels in Bulawayo, and find yourself the perfect basecamp from which to explore all that Zimbabwe has to offer.
