Why visit the Matobo Hills?

A UNESCO World Heritage Site is situated only 45kms from Bulawayo.

The granite domes and castle kopjes of the Matobo Hills echo the essence of tranquillity and the majesty of untamed Africa, where mammal and bird species are prolific.

Included here are the highest concentrations of Leopard and Black Eagle in the world, as well as a healthy population of the endangered Black and White Rhino.

Some of the most breathtaking granite scenery in the world is found in the Matobo Hills. It is here that the hopes, trials and tribulations of the San Bushmen are recorded in the ancient rock art.
