"Take the long walk to the Matobo cave paintings." Bulawayo Off The Beaten Path Tip by K.Knight
Bulawayo Off The Beaten Path: 1 reviews and 1 photos
The Matobo hills is one of the richest areas in the world for prehistoric rock art and this form of recorded history is dated from about 25'000 years before the present.
This rocky area has numerous of these graphic art forms but unfortunately these paintings are subject to vandalism and this is destroying them faster than weather elements. These paintings are exceptional records of how prehistoric men lived in this region, how they hunted and what animals were present, and also gives us the opportunity to glimpse into how they perceived the world around them.
The return walk took around 2 hours from the car park.
