The Matobo National Park is located 35km south of Bulawayo. The Hills were formed over 2 000 million years ago with granite being forced to the surface, this has eroded to produce smooth "whaleback dwalas" and broken hills, strewn with boulders and interspersed with thickets of vegetation. Mzilikazi, founder of the Ndebele nation, gave the area its name, meaning 'Bald Heads'. Mzilikazi is buried in the Matobo Hills just a short distance from the park. The Park was awarded Unesco World Heritage Status in June 2003 and includes an Intensive Protection Zone where large populations of Black and White Rhino are successfully breeding. The Park offers a diverse package of tourist attractions and activities. Matobo National Park is also the site of the grave of Cecil John Rhodes. He is buried at the summit of Malindidzimu -' hill of benevolent spirits'. He referred to this hill as having a 'View of the World'. A short walk from the parking lot will lead the visitor to his grave, which is carved out of the solid granite hill and surrounded by a natural amphitheater of massive boulders. The Matobo area has great spiritual and cultural significance to the local people and there are many sites within the park where important ceremonies still take place.
