Zimbabwe’s second city, Bulawayo, is a relaxed and charming destination rich with history and culture. It’s very picturesque, with tree lined boulevards, lush parks, and colonial buildings. While most people bypass the city in favour of the safari lodges, there are plenty of reasons to linger in Bulawayo for a few days. There are some great museums and art galleries, and some fantastic places to eat and drink. The outdoor swimming pool is particularly charming, and a great place to spend hot afternoons.
