Matobo Hills Accommodation

Easily accessible from Zimbabwe's second largest city, Matobo Hills accommodation starts just 45 kilometres from Bulawayo

Just 60kms south of Zimbabwe's second largest city lies Zimbabwe's oldest national park - Matobo Hills. It is often overlooked by visitors, as it can be difficult to access without taking another flight to Bulawayo, or long road transfer from either Victoria Falls or Harare. However, if you're already taking a road trip, Matobo Hills makes for great stop for at least a couple of nights.

Matopos (as it is sometimes referred to) is home to unique granite hills, large boulders, and balancing rocks - not like any other place in the country. It is also home to a variety of wildlife, including the protected rhino. Not only is Matobo Hills a place of wondrous landscapes and wildlife, the cultural, historical and indeed spiritual elements are an important part of the place.

Matobo Hills accommodation consists of a few lodges starting 45kms south of Bulawayo, plus a few National Parks' lodges located right inside the park.

The lodges just outside the park boundaries have offerings that range from self-catering campsites and bed and breakfast, to fully inclusive luxury stays. Some will offer various activities centred around the attractions both within the park and tours as far out as Bulawayo city. Amalinda Lodge, Big Cave Camp, Matobo Hills Lodge and Farmhouse Lodge are popular choices.

For self-drivers who want to self-cater and stay within Matobo Hills National Park, there are a few option both in the northern and southern parts of the park. In the heart of the park is the Maleme area, which has chalets and self-catering lodges. The Sandy Spruit (in the north), Mtshelele (in the south-east), Togwana (in the east) and Mesilume areas also have campsites and lodges run by the Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Authority, and are ideal for budget family accommodation, bearing in mind that national parks fees are paid for each person and vehicle per day.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
