    Default Any Bulawayo lodging/food info?

    My wife & I will be spending a day/night in Bulawayo on our way to a hunt... What are presently the best hotel(s) & places to eat & buy local crafts (local-made knives, elephant hair bracelets, etc.) We know about Vic Falls & other "main" attractions...We've been to 40+ countries & enjoy checking out the non-Frommer's- guide local culture...I take it that its pretty safe by day??

    Hello Joester.have a look at the Nesbitt Castle.Really a very nice place and a very nice trophy room.Have a look at The Nesbitt Castle | Bulawayo You wont be diisapointed! Probably the best in Bulawayo.Great food also.Always a good idea to eat at the place you are staying thus avoiding travel at night in an unknown city! The natural history museum used to be very interesting,dont know how it looks nowadays.

    Joester, If you are in a position to travel have a look at a place called the Big Cave. About 50 km south of Bulawayo in Mtopos hills.

    Although we did not stay there (only had lunch) the Bulawayo Club may be worth a look.

    The place to go shopping for the things you want is a place called Fazzaks.

    Have a beer and dinner at Busters. You may run in to a famous PH or two.

    Joester, seriously, John is an awesome guy, just ask him to sort out your Byo arrangements for you! He will have 'preferred suppliers' so to speak that look after his clients! With his say so you'll get excellent service I'm sure! I live here in Byo so feel free to ask away!

    Thanks, Ole; We won't be hunting w/John, but he's hooked us up w/PH & lodging. When I em'd asking about places in Byo he suggested we go see Vic Falls instead; but we want to spend a day/night stay in Byo- - not looking for sites outside of town, just a couple eating/shopping spots...We'll stay @ the Castle...Are you from Byo originally?
