Lerato Adventures – Granite boulders in Matobos National Park Zimbabwe

Matobos national park

Rich in history and culture and spanning over 44'000 hectares, Matobo National Park is a spectacular site. The park is decorated by a range of unique granite formations. This majestic and rugged terrain is a hiker’s paradise and the diversity of the vegetation supports a wide range of wildlife. Bushmen 2'000 years ago left brilliantly-preserved rock paintings and a valuable collection of rock art, which can be seen on the cave walls. Our favourite aspect of Matobo, however, is the Intensive Protection Zone, where a large population of Black and White Rhinoceros are successfully breeding. To spot one of these endangered creatures is truly humbling and the efforts going into their revival is inspiring. Beyond the rhinoceros, you can expect to see zebra, giraffe, warthog, waterbuck, baboons, monkey … the list goes on. And if you look to the skies, you’ve got a fantastic chance of spotting black eagles. Yet another UNESCO wonderland.
