Matobo Hills


The Matobo Hills are an area of extraordinary, tightly-packed granite rock formations and narrow woodland valleys 35 kilometres south of Bulawayo, the second largest city in Zimbabwe.

The Matobo National Park forms the core of a massive area which covers 3100km² of diverse terrain. Created over 2 billion years ago, the hills were formed when granite was forced to the surface, which has, over time, been eroded to form an area of broken kopjes strewn artistically with boulders, and interspersed with thick vegetation.  Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003, the Matobo Hills represent untamed, raw beauty.

For flora enthusiasts, the area is high in botanic diversity, with over 200 species of trees recorded in the national park alone. Game viewing opportunities can be found in the expansive mammal, snake and bird population. Particularly, game includes white and black rhinos, black eagle, leopard, sable and giraffe, all of which can be viewed on safari outings. It also has an Intensive Protection Zone for white and black rhinos, which are famously close to extinction.

Interestingly, while still largely untouched, the area has been associated with human occupation since the early Stone Age! The Matobo Hills have one of the highest concentrations of rock art as evidence of this, which can be found in the naturally-formed caves, and provide visitors with an opportunity for enrichment. Fascinatingly, the area also has the highest concentration of leopard and black eagle in the world.

With such beautiful surroundings and a pleasant, sunny climate, it offers the perfect opportunity for a lengthy hike, or game drive.

Matopos lodges and Matobo Hills acccommodation in general is surprisingly luxurious, considering the untamed surroundings. Set in the heart of the area, Camp Amalinda is a luxurious refuge tucked away between the expansive granite mountains.  The explorer style Big Cave Camp is another tranquil getaway destination offering a myriad of exciting activities.
