Gweru Budget Travel

Gweru is a city in Zimbabwe situated in the Midlands region, near the centre of the country.

The town is the third largest town in Zimbabwe, despite its fairly small size, and Gweru budget travel is a popular inclusion in many Zimbabwe tours.

Gweru Budget Safaris

The current economic and political status of Zimbabwe makes Gweru budget safaris difficult, however if travelling to Gweru as part of an official overland tour it is well worth a visit.

Attractions in Gweru include the Thornhill Air Base, the Zimbabwe Military Museum, Antelope Game Park, the nearby Nalatale and Danangombe archaeological enclosures and the famous Boggie Clock Tower, named after a pioneer widow’s husband.

There are a few good hotels in Gweru, including the Midlands Hotel and the Chitukuko Hotel. Hotels may be very expensive due to current Zimbabwe economic crisis, so be prepared!

Gweru is situated a few hours drive from Bulawayo, which has a number of attractions including Kame Ruins, the Wildlife Orphanage and other highlights.
