African Travel Concept

Bulawayo

Bulawayo is Zimbabwe's second largest city. Located in the south west of the country, it is home to more than a million people. Bulawayo is the hub of the province of Matabeleland which comprises of the whole western Zimbabwe, from the South African border in the south to Victoria Falls in the north. 

The city has wide, tree-lined streets and is surrounded by beautiful parks. Within the city are many examples of early Victorian buildings which are maintained by the Bulawayo City council and landlords as heritage sites.

Mzilikazi Arts and Crafts Centre, situated just out of town, is definitely worth a visit where you can choose from a wide selection of skilfully crafted sculptures, basketry, pottery, beadwork and woodwork.

One of Zimbabawe's major tourist attractions is the Matopos National Park, less than an hour's drive from the city. As you leave the city travelling south, many granite outcrops are seen. They increase in number and size as the distance from the city grows. By the time you enter the park, you are surrounded by dramatic and enveloping scenery that is truly unique and extraordinary.
