The Matobo Hills National Park has some of the most magnificent prehistoric caves and bushman artwork to be found anywhere in the world and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The paintings are between 1500 and 13000 years old and range from delicate wildlife sketches such as giraffe, lions, rhino and even fireflies, to gritty re-enactments of hunting and the fantastical abstract world of ancient bushman beliefs and religious totems.
A trip to visit the local inhabitants of the Silozwe Valley in the Matobo Hills is a cultural treasure for those who wish to learn more about traditional African culture.

The granite hills offers you hikes of all levels. When you visit Matobo Hills Lodge, we will put you on the right track.
The famous British colonialist, Cecil John Rhodes is buried in the Matobo hills. Rhodes’s grave sits atop a granite hill known to local inhabitants as “Malindidzimu,” a Khalanga word which translates to “the hill of benevolent spirits”.
From the grave, there is an awe-inspiring 360° view in every direction of the Matobo Hills. Rhodes spent many an afternoon pondering life’s great questions at this exact spot which he called “A view of the world.”
