Bulawayo
is a major city, the second largest in Zimbabwe, with a population of over half a million people.

On 4 November 1893, Leander Starr Jameson declared Bulawayo a settlement under the rule of the British South Africa Company upon successfully over turning Prince Lobengula during the Matabele War.

Due to the location of the city, near the borders of both South Africa and Botswana, Bulawayo has long been and still is regarded as the business and industrial capital of Zimbabwe. However in recent years, the city has experienced a sharp fall in living standards coinciding with the severe economic crisis affecting the country.

Although there are sights of interest in Bulawayo, most of our guests tend to pass straight through, perhaps overnighting to connect flights. If you do need to stay, here are a few of the better accommodation options ...


The Nesbitt Castle ... is an excellent boutique hotel contained within a fully refurbished mock castle, surely the most interesting place to stay in the town.

Garda Lodge ... is a pleasant options set on the southern edge of the town.

Mpala Boutique Hotel ... is a relatively intimate and high quality option in a quiet residential suburb.
