Matobo National Park


... is located around 35km south of Bulawayo in the southwest of Zimbabwe.

This national park is the oldest in Zimbabwe, established in 1926 as Rhodes Matopos National Park, a bequest from British pioneer Cecil Rhodes.

The park forms the core of the Matopos Hills, an area of characteristic granite kopjes and wooded valleys. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003 and exhibits a profusion of distinctive rock landforms rising above the sub-surface granite shield that covers much of Zimbabwe.

Part of the national park is set aside as a 100 square kilometre wildlife reserve, which has been stocked with animals including sables, giraffes, zebras, impalas, wildebeest and ostriches. On rare occasions leopards can also be spotted.

Camp Amalinda ... is the stand-out accommodation is, situated on a private concession just outside the national park.
