The granite formations in Matobo National Park contain rock art and San artefacts that date back thousands of years. Surrounded by huge rock formations and delicately balanced boulders, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a scenic place to see game like white and black rhinos, leopards, zebras, monkeys and much more. One of the strangest, but most fascinating attractions in Matobo Hills is the lizard feedings that take place three times daily at World's View, which is also where Cecil John Rhodes is buried. Although the game viewing can be spectacular, this area is mainly fascinating because of it's ancient cultural remnants, making it a particularly exciting Zimbabwean attraction for those interested in rock art.
