Bulawayo is also known as the city of kings and queens. It was once well known for its industrial factories that have since been shutdown due to some economic challenges in the country. It is the second largest city in Zimbabwe and is largely populated by people from the Ndebele tribe.

Bulawayo is a multicultural city with two main languages, Shona and Ndebele. The second largest ethnic group, the Ndebele people are found in this region. It is also the second largest city by size and population. Knowledge of the Ndebele language is important since about half the population are native Ndebele speakers. The city is in the hotter regions of the country so summers can be really hot.

Bulawayo is in the southern region of Zimbabwe and therefore, experiences a temperate climate with hot summers and cold winters. The popular culture used to be Ndebele but a high level of social integration has led to an open minded, diverse population that gives a true representation of the country as a whole.
