Bulawayo Province

Just as the Victorian houses rub shoulders with high-rise buildings, you will see sparkling-clean limousines parked side by side with dusty safari vehicles, it is a city of fascinating contrasts.

The most interesting aspects of the city for international visitors are probably the famous museums. The natural history museum contains the largest collection of stuffed mammals in Africa as well as a huge wealth of highly interesting other exhibits from insects via geological specimens to the exhibits depicting the history of mankind. The railway museum has several steam engines to offer, amongst them the Garratts that were typical for Zimbabwe. Furthermore you can climb aboard the private railway coach used by Cecil Rhodes and admire how lovingly it has been preserved.
