Greyhound has recently introduced the Dreamliner to Zimbabwe, a first in the coach travelling industry. Seeing as the Dreamliner travels between Johannesburg and Bulawayo, we are going to share with you some epic attractions in Bulawayo that will make you want to book your tickets today.
If you’ve reached Bulawayo in one of the most stylish and luxurious modes of transport, it is only fitting that you should be treated to a royal experience at the Nesbitt Castle. The European-styled castle was built in the 1920s using local stone. Recent owners have since turned the castle into a boutique hotel, pub and restaurant with gorgeous gardens and a pony park. Settle down for a drink at the Coach House Restaurant or Dragon’s Den Pub or take a stroll through mysterious passengers and winding paths.
Located near the city centre, on 6 Percy Avenue, Hillside.
Natural History Museum
Trust us, there is nothing boring about this museum. The Natural History Museum is a place filled with intriguing wonders of different shapes and sizes. For instance; the world’s second largest taxidermy display, a mighty elephant, can be found in this museum. You will also see various displays of African animals in scenes depicting their natural habitats. If you are interested in travelling back in time, be sure to pay a visit to the museum’s Mankind section which gives visitors an insight into Zimbabwe’s history from the Stone Age to Colonialism.
Located in the city centre next to Centenary Park on Leopold Takawira Avenue.
Matobo National Park
The Matobo National Park is an enchanting UNESCO World Heritage site and is said to be home to the greatest amount of leopards in Zimbabwe. Within an expanse of granite hills, visitors can explore rock art, geological sights and gawp at rhinos and other animals that can be found in the park. It would suffice to say that a camera and good walking shoes are necessities when visiting.
Located approx. 40km from Bulawayo off the Matopos Rd
Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage
Judging by some of these attractions it is safe to assume that the preservation of animals is quite important in Bulawayo. Chipangali is an orphanage where injured wild animals are cared for and prepared to be released into the wild of circumstances allow it. The orphanage was supported by Diana, Princess of Wales from 1983 up until her death. Spending a day in the presence of these animals is truly an eye-opener.
