  • Day 01 +02
  • Arrive Bulawayo and you will be met and transferred to your lodge in the Matobo (Matopos) Hills National Park. You will have an orientation this evening followed by dinner. Hundreds of kopjes supporting thousands of precariously balanced rocks give the 164-square-mile (424-km2) Matobo National Park one of the most unusual landscapes in Africa. A jewel of a park, it is a well-kept secret and is a highlight for many that venture there. The park is divided into two sections — a general recreational area, with popular pony trails, and a game reserve. Part of the park is an IPZ (Intensive Protection Zone) and contains one of the highest concentrations of black and white rhino in Africa. Next moring enjoy breakfast between 7:00-7:30 am. You will depart camp at 7:30 am and be dropped off at your morning project (arriving at approximately 8:00 am). 2 nights Camp Amalinda.
