Matobo Hills, meaning ‘bald head’, was named by the great Ndebele King, Mzilikazi. Only 45 kms from Bulawayo, this is where you will find some of the most stunning granite scenery in the world, and wildlife which includes large numbers of leopard, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, warthog, antelope and an abundance of bird life, including the Black Eagle.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a highly protected breeding site for black and white rhino.

Explore the unique granite hills on foot, accompanied by a specialist guide, or you may choose to view the fine rock paintings created by the ancient San people. Horse-back riding, fishing, boating and hiking make this destination a popular choice for family holidays.
