It's fairly easy to get around Bulawayo city itself on foot, although you may want to consider hiring a car as a safer option; walking around parts of the city is fairly safe during the day, but walking is not advisable at night. Several international car hire companies, such as Avis and Europcar, are represented at Bulawayo Airport. Driving is one of the most convenient ways to get around, but travellers should note that the roads have deteriorated over the last few years. Local taxis are also a good way to get around; taxis are usually light blue. The minibus taxis used by locals are cheap and convenient, but tend to be overcrowded and poorly maintained which can make catching a ride a hair-raising experience.
