The park is well run, with good roads and tracks. The scenery is spectacular, and the rock art we saw was the best we'd seen in our journey. There are no elephants, and not a huge amount of other wildlife, but we were there to see rhino, and the chance of seeing them is quite high. There is also a chance to buy curios there from local villagers, at higher quality and much lower prices than Victoria Falls.

Matabo is a great destination, scenic wise. We stayed at the Shumba Shaba Lodge in a spectacular setting.

In Matobo Park we had opportunity to cycling around this park. The wildlife is poor but we had opportunity to see rhino and monkeys. We sleep on the camping site there and we were alone.

Scenery here is simply breath taking. The birdlife is excellent and the wildlife is not too bad but a little harder to see in amoungst all of the towering granite boulders and dwalas. The roads in the Game Park could do with some TLC but overall it is a lovely place to go with a picnic for the day and just outside the city of Bulawayo. Well worth the visit.

Matobo is very special in the sense that you will not only find wildlife, but amazing balancing rock formations as well as bushman paintings to be seen in caves.

Matobo Hills is another one of Zimbabwe's Cultural World Heritage Sites. It has significant spirtual significance for locals. It has the most amazing scenery that is second to none when it comes to vast granite rock formations that include large continuos rock domes and blalancing rocks. This area is home to one of the largest, if not the largest concentration of Black Eagles in the world. There are numerous other bird species present to. It is not a major safari area, but having said that it is a great place to track white rhino and there are also many leopards in residence here.

It was just an attractive place and the strange rock/boulders were incredible.

White Rhinos in between stone formations called kopjes, who could ask for more?
