Beitbridge

Beitbridge is a border town in the province of Matabeleland South, Zimbabwe. The name also refers to the border post and bridge spanning the Limpopo River, which forms the political border between South Africa and Zimbabwe.

The town lies just north of the Limpopo River about 1 km from the Alfred Beit Road Bridge which spans the Limpopo River between South Africa and Zimbabwe. According to the 2002 population census, the town had a population of 22,387 dominated by the local Venda people, who are also found across the international border in the Vhembe District of the Republic of South Africa. The Beitbridge border post is the busiest road border post in southern Africa, and is best avoided during busy border-crossing seasons.

Kwekwe was always the most impressive of the small towns. It could even be a small metro area with Redcliff if Ziscosteel had prospered. It is better looking than Kadoma as well.
