Unveiling the Ancient Wonders: Matobo National Park, Zimbabwe.

Matobo National Park, also known as Matopos Hills National Park, lies south of Zimbabwe’s second-largest city, Bulawayo. This park offers a unique blend of:

  • Dramatic Landscapes: Granite rock formations, called kopjes, dominate the landscape. These massive, oddly-shaped boulders, some precariously balanced, create an otherworldly feel.

  • Ancient History: Matobo National Park boasts a rich history dating back thousands of years. Explore numerous caves adorned with San (Bushmen) rock paintings, offering a glimpse into the lives of these early inhabitants. The area also holds spiritual significance for the local people, with shrines and sacred places scattered throughout the hills.

  • Wildlife Sanctuary: While not the primary focus, Matobo National Park provides habitat for a variety of wildlife. Look out for black and white rhinos, reintroduced to the park for conservation purposes. The world’s densest population of leopards makes Matobo a prime location for spotting these elusive predators. Black eagles are also commonly seen soaring over the kopjes.

  • Outdoor Activities: Hike through the scenic landscape, venturing past ancient rock paintings and balancing kopjes. Horseback riding trails offer a unique way to explore the park, while historical sites like Cecil Rhodes’ grave provide a deeper understanding of the region’s past.

Matobo National Park caters to a diverse range of interests. History buffs can delve into the past, nature lovers can marvel at the dramatic scenery and diverse wildlife, while adventure seekers can conquer challenging hikes or horseback riding trails.
