    Rhodes last home!

    Favorite thing: Cecil Rhodes Grave is inside the rocks of Matopos. It was his favourite place in Rhodesia and his last will was fullfilled that he wants to be burried up here......

    It´s not the worst place for a grave!!!!

    Everything but elephant

    rhino

    Favorite thing: Theres everything but elephant in the park, the park is too small for them. You do about a 4 hour drive including lunch by a nice lake. You can do part of the tour on foot which is a real opportunity to get close to animals!

    Rocks & Rhinos

    by SirRichard Written Feb 25, 2003
    Standing on the edge

    Favorite thing: Although the main attraction of the Park are the rock formations, there are many wild animals to be seen, specially the black rhino (at last count, there were 35 in the park).
    If you take a 1 day tour, you see the rocks in the morning and the animals in the afternoon, but we arrived at Bulawayo late for the 1 day tour, so did just half day and didn't see rhinos...

    Those huge rocks...

    by SirRichard Written Feb 25, 2003
    Me between rocks..

    Favorite thing: The size of the rocks is unbelievable, as well as the fact of them being there, isolated.
    It seems that giants would have pushed them up the hill to its actual position...

    View from the hill

    Favorite thing: The landscapes of the park are made basically of rocks, giving it the appearance of lunar surreal landscapes. From Rhodes tomb you can have a wonderful view of the park around.
