General Information

Kwekwe is located in the Midlands Province of Zimbabwe, and apparently owes its unusual name to the sound made by croaking frogs along the river banks, but the frogs have long since been drowned out by the hum of the growing town. 

Kwekwe's town centre has some lovely colonial architecture, and one of the country's finest museums is located here.  Kwekwe is also the headquarters of Zimbabwe's Islamic Mission with a huge mosque with elaborate domes and arches dominating the main street.

Kwekwe and Redcliff are the headquarters of Zimbabwe's largest steelworks, Zimbabwe Iron and Steel Company (ZISCO).  It also hosts the biggest power generating plants, ZESA-Munyati, in Munyati, a suburb of Kwekwe.  

The town has always been a very sociable one, with most people spending their summer at the local public swimming pool.

Accommodation in Kwekwe

There are two main hotels in town which cater for business travellers, and a recent growth of chalet accommodation at lodges have emerged to cope with the overflow from the hotels.
 
Please see our accommodation directory for more information on places to stay.
