Masvingo

Masvingo is a city in Southeastern Zimbabwe and the capital of Masvingo province.

Get in

Buses to Masvingo leave when full from Harare's Mbare bus station, cost about $7 and take about five hours. You can also potentially get one of the "luxury" buses between Johannesburg and Harare's Roadport to drop you off, but this will be much more expensive and is unlikely to work in the other direction. Minibuses to/from Bulawayo cost about $8 and take 4.5 to 5 hours. In Masvingo, transport to/from both Harare and Bulawayo arrives/departs from Bradburn Street, on the western edge of the city centre (marked on Google Maps). There are also buses/minibuses towards Mutare.

A Kombi van from the Pick N pay supermarket in down town Masvingo to the Grent Zimbabwe cost $1.50c and takes 30 mins.

Go next

The stone ruins of Great Zimbabwe entry $15 per person are about 25km south of the city. You can get a combi from behind the Pick N Pay supermarket just south of the town centre, costing around $1.50c and taking around 30 minutes. This will drop you about 2km from the gate to the ruins. Taking a taxi is also possible but much more expensive.
