Twinned with Aberdeen in Scotland, Bulawayo is the hub of the province of Matabeleland and the second largest city in Zimbabwe. It is an attractive city with wide tree-lined streets and avenues, beautiful parks and a pleasing mixture of Victorian and modern architecture. Bulawayo houses the country’s Natural History Museum, a Railway Museum and the Bulawayo Art Gallery. The Mzilikazi Arts and Craft Centre as well as the Bulawayo Home Industries Centre are worth a visit for the ethnic crafts produced. Some 22 km west of the city is a Unesco World Heritage site, the Kame Ruins, one of Southern Africa’s magnificent Late Iron Age ruins.
