Welcome to Matobo Hills

Matobo Hills:  The granite formations in Matobo National Park contain rock art and Bushmen artefacts that date back thousands of years. Surrounded by huge rock formations and delicately balanced boulders, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a scenic place to see game like white and black rhinos, leopards, zebras, monkeys and much more. One of the strangest, but most fascinating attractions in Matobo Hills is the lizard feedings that take place three times daily at World's View, which is also where Cecil John Rhodes is buried. Cecil John Rhodes was at the time one of the richest and most powerful industrialists in the world. On seeing the Matopos he chose this as his burial ground for its beauty and serenity. The great Ndebele King Mzilikazi also chose the area for his burial ground and the whole area has a deep spiritual significance for the local people that can be felt when one visits. Home to Rhino and a great number of none carniverous mammals this is a hikers paradise with magnificent balancing rock formations and granite vistas interspersed with sweeping African vistas.
 
Camp Amalinda is located only 45 km from Bulawayo City. The Camp is built into the panorama of granite rocks that surround the Matopos National Park. Camp Amalinda, a Wilderness of Granite, is situated just outside the Matopos National Park..
