“Always Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

Matopos - one of my favourite places... the park needs some maintenance on some of the roads, however the experience is always awesome...

Rhino, Hippo, Giraffe all seen...

“Matobo NP”

This is a beautiful NP and the views from Cecil Rhodes grave site are incredible. Make sure you get someone who will talk you through the history of the place.

“Fantastic cave paintings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

The Matobos have such variety, with viewpoints such as that by Rhodes' grave and huge balancing rocks but the high spots are the many caves with ancient paintings. The accessibility and clarity, albeit with some distance between them, provide great photo opportunities - and you can often see the real thing later!
