While we were walking out to see the white rhinos, and after Anne and I had walked past, one of our group shouted for us to "stop and look at this snake!" It was a black mamba!!!!!!!!
The black mamba is the most deadly snake in the world. They grow 14 feet in length, and can travel at speeds of up to 19 kmph. They have a head shaped like a coffin. The Black Mamba is not actually black. They have a brownish-gray body with a light belly and brownish scales along its back. It gets its name from the color of the lining of its mouth, which is purple-black, and which it displays when threatened.
At seeing this snake, both of our tour guides looked very sick and worried indeed.

The Matobo hills is one of the richest areas in the world for prehistoric rock art and this form of recorded history is dated from about 25'000 years before the present.
This rocky area has numerous of these graphic art forms but unfortunately these paintings are subject to vandalism and this is destroying them faster than weather elements. These paintings are exceptional records of how prehistoric men lived in this region, how they hunted and what animals were present, and also gives us the opportunity to glimpse into how they perceived the world around them.
The return walk took around 2 hours from the car park.
