Tour the granite kopjes and forested valleys at Matobo Hills, formed several billion years ago when granite was forced to the surface. The boulders and thickets of vegetation serve as a home to animal species like the black and white rhino, sable antelope, and wildebeest. Explore the caves and rocks adorned with paintings and carvings dating back to the Stone Age, their motifs of prehistoric life etched into the stone. Locals still use the hills as a sacred place, with shrines linked to traditional social activities.
