Set on a well-maintained, 5-hectare property, Burke's Paradise is hands down Bulawayo's best choice for budget independent travellers. There's a good mix of dorms and private rooms, a lovely pool and an overall relaxed atmosphere. It's on the outskirts of town, but you can catch combis to/from town, or it's a US$10 cab ride.
The friendly owners/hosts Adam and Vicki are excellent sources of info. Wi-fi is US$3 per 24 hours.
Burkes' Paradise is set on a 12 acre plot of land covered in a mix of natural bush and well maintained lawns.
We have 3 twin rooms, 2 doubles and 2 dorm rooms (4 single beds in each dorm room). We also have a lot of camping space and have had up to 50 people camping here at once.
There is WiFi internet access available in our communal lounge area so you can relax on our sofas and armchairs while you catch up on your emails or facebook.
We also have a swimming pool for you to cool off in our hot summers.
