Amazing Safari Lodges And Camps In Zimbabwe's Matobo National Park
Matobo National Park and the Matopos Hills lie just 35 kilometres south of Bulawayo, an area renowned for a large range of granite hills (domes), spires and balancing rock formations. An interesting note on the Matopos Hills in Zimbabwe; 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.
The Matobo National Park is home to a variety of different lodges. There are traditional safari lodges, as well as tented camps and safari villa accommodation. All of the lodges offer guests a unique experience, and guests can enjoy stunning views of the Zimbabwean landscape.
A suggested period of stay in the Matobo Hills region when on a Zimbabwe safari would not be more than two days unless, of course, you are an avid birder and/ or photographer; then, of course, look at around five days for the best experience.
The Matobo National Park is known for its safari activities, including game drives and walking excursions. For those guests looking for a truly unique Zimbabwe safari experience, include Worlds View, Rhino spotting and a walk to the various caves that offer up bushmen art.
