Bulawayo Municipal Swimming Baths

Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Notes

Open daily except Good Friday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day.The water is coldest from May through September, but the pool remains open during that period.
The facility is the host of the December, 2014 African Union Region V Under 20 Youth Games. In that connection, a second, warm-up pool has been built at this facility, but we don't have a description of it.

Facility Reviews

I have spent many happy hours in and by the Bulawayo Municipal Pool - it is exceptionally well maintained for a country in such economic decline: beautiful sparkling water, with neat lawns maintained with pride.It is open from 9.30, with a one-hour lunch break during the day. Very, very busy in the afternoons and weekend, when it's full of happy children - the best time to go is very early morning when the whole 50m length is available. Warmly recommended!
