A park like no other...!!

Written on: February 26, 2014   |   I visited in October 2013 Technically known as Rhodes Matopos National Park, Matobo National Park is known to be the oldest park with the name Matobo reflecting the correct vernacular pronunciation of the area.

The scenery of the Matobo Hills makes it truly special. The Matobo Hills has a wide diversity of flora and fauna, with over 200 species of tree and over 100 grass species. Matobo National Park has 88 mammal, 175 bird, 39 snake and 16 fish species with the highest concentration of black eagles, and breeding pairs of these birds worldwide.

This Park is so amazing that you can easily spend two or three full days in Matobo enjoying white rhinoceros, sable antelope, impala, leopard and rock art.
Places of stay include Camp Amalinda and Big Cape Camp.

The UNESCO world heritage site is only 45 min by car from Bulawayo and thus perfect for a day or half-day trip.
