AboutMatobo National Park

Matobo means ‘bald heads’ and was the name chosen for the area by the great Ndebele King, Mzilikazi. He is buried in the Matobo Hills just a short distance from the park and the grave of Cecil John Rhodes. The area is infused with history and spiritual mystery, evidenced by the incredible number of San rock art paintings, many still pristine and found in caves and on rock faces. Established in 1926, Matobo Hills is Zimbabwe’s oldest national park and was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status in 2003. It is most famous for the magnificent granite rock kopjes surrounding it, and is home to one of the world’s largest populations of black eagles and several black and white rhinos.
