Town of Bulawayo Province
Bulawayo - Zimbabwe
I had low expectations of Bulawayo and went there because I wanted to see the Matopos National Park. However, Bulawayo was a lot nicer than I had thought and I enjoyed spending time there. As with the rest of Zimbabwe, there is a strong element of faded glory and everything is 'a bit broken', but the people are as friendly as they always have been and there is no feeling of insecurity or menace. I would recommend including Bulawayo on an itinerary of Zimbabwe, if only as an extra to visiting the Matopos National Park.
