Matobo Hills

Matobo Hills, Matobo National Park

The Matobo National Park is Zimbabwe's oldest, first established in 1926 as a bequest by Cecil John Rhodes. The granite domes and castle kopjes found in the Matobo Hills echo the essence of tranquility and the majesty of untamed Africa, where wildlife and birdlife species thrive in prolific numbers.

The area is famous for it's high concentrations of Leopard and Black Eagle, as well as for it's healthy population of the endangered Black and White Rhino, making the area one of the most sought after destinations within Zimbabwe. The most unforgettable safari experience offered in the Matobo Hills is approaching this endangered species on foot.

The Matobo Hills have one of the highest concentrations of rock art in Southern Africa dating back at least 13,000 years. The paintings illustrate evolving artistic styles and also socio-religious beliefs. The whole area bears testimony to a rich cultural tradition that has now disappeared.
