Matobo Hills is an area of granite koppies and wooded valleys south of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The hills were formed (over 2 billion years ago) from granite forced to the surface, that has eroded to produce smooth “whaleback dwalas” and broken koppies, strewn with boulders and interspersed with thickets of vegetation. This unique topography makes for some amazing riding with many unique features adding to the overall experience. These include the highest concentration of rock art anywhere in the world, a history of Anglo-Ndebele conflicts and a diversity of flora and fauna.
