Bulawayo

4.2
A vacation in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe's second-largest city, offers a pleasant base for wider explorations of some of the country's national parks and game reserves. Exuding an old world charm, Bulawayo boasts leafy boulevards lined with colonial-era buildings, as well as a number of interesting museums. Nearby Victoria Falls and the World Heritage-listed Khami Ruins top most Bulawayo itineraries, but take time to explore the town itself, with artisan shops and modern shopping malls, plus a lively nightlife and dining scene. Add Bulawayo and other destinations to your itinerary using our Zimbabwe trip itinerary tool, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
