One of the most exciting things I did during 10 days of camping and game drives in four national parks around Southern Africa was tracking rhinos by foot in Matobo National Park in Zimbabwe. The park is known for Matobo (Matopos) Hills, an area with naturally formed, gravity-defying boulders.
There are various companies that operate rhino tracking in the area. I’m choosing not to name the company I used because as much as I truly relished tracking Rhinos, our guide made inexcusable remarks and I cannot not recommend them. Black Rhino Safaris is an alternative choice with good reviews.
Check out my video below for a peek into the experience. It was both exhilarating and terrifying – I highly recommend it!
Oh, and if you make it to Matobo NP, don’t miss the rock paintings left by the San hunter-gatherers dating back at least 13,000 years!
