General Information

Matobo National Park is just south of Bulawayo in Southern Zimbabwe and is rich in cultural history.  The park was given world heritage status in 2003 and provides a protective zone for the black and white rhinoceros.  Birdlife is prolific within the park attracting avid birdwatchers.  Matobo National Park contains the highest concentration of black eagles and breeding pairs in the world.

Famous for its unique balancing granite rock features which were formed over two billion years ago, which have eroded to smooth surfaces consisting of boulders intermingled with endemic vegetation.  Possibly the best time to visit the park is during the winter from around May to October when the vegetation is sparse making it easier to spot the wildlife.

Local arts and crafts are available to purchase within the park in support of the local community.  Matobo National Park holds many educational school trips to showcase the area’s rich history and cultural heritage, including it being home to the burial site of Cecil John Rhodes.
