Matobo National Park and the Matopos Hills lie just 35 kilometres south of Bulawayo, an area renowned for a large range of granite domes, spires and balancing rock formations. An interesting note on the Matopos Hills; formed over 2 billion years ago, yes, 2 000 000 000 years ago.
A visit to the Matobo National Park and the Matopos Hills is all about scenery, small plains game, sable antelope, impala and leopard, birding and not forgetting visits to 2000-year-old San (Bushmen) paintings. The Matobo area is also known as an 'Intensive Protection Zone' for both White and Black Rhinoceros.
A suggested period of stay in this area of Zimbabwe would not be more than two days unless of course, you are an avid birder and/ or photographer.
Below is our small collection of camps and lodges in and around Matobo National Park.
