Just before entering the park, we stumbled upon a herd of Sable and a great big herd of Buffalo that ran right across the road in front of our car. We started off on a great note, and were further treated to a male Lion, Ele (far away in the distance) and Kudu. We spent three nights in total at Hwange and will return to this park in the right season next time. You can just tell by being there that in Winter this park would hold many surprises. Judging by the comments in the visitor’s book this was certainly true. One day we shall return with much expectation
Our Hwange Lion, aint he beautiful!
The Matopo’s (Matobo National Park)
Just outside of Bulawayo is a sacred area in Zim called The Motopo’s. We camped here for two nights and drove around just taking in the breathtaking scenery that consist of boulers that balance on top of one another at some crazy heights. We also took part in a bit of cultural activities and went to see The San’s Rock paintings from many moons ago. This area is where the San people used to live before they made it a national park and a UNESCO World Heritage site sight. If you are ever in the area, be sure to drop in. on a most sacred land.
The most majestic granite scenery in the world
