Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage and Research Centre is located a few kilometres from the city and has become a Bulawayo Attraction it is not a zoo but a shelter or a home to the animals.

Chipangali wildlife orphanage is a haven for wild animals which have little hope for survival in the wild – animals or birds which have been orphaned, abandoned, injured, born in captivity or brought up unsuccessfully as pets.

It is often the last refuge for those brought in sick or injured and has increasingly become a sanctuary for confiscated animals.
