travel the voyage of self discovery

Bulawayo

Bulawayo was like heaven , proper beds , warm showers and a tv.Civilization had never felt so good.
Some 35km away from Bulawayo is Matobo National Park which forms the core of the Matobo or Matopos Hills, an area of granite kopjes and wooded valleys .
The lonely planet describes it as a Stroll along the granite ridges and experience the overwhelming sense of tranquillity.However i would describe it as a hot slog up granite rocks to not the worlds most inspiring of views. Now i enjoy trekking but this will never be one of my inspiring and unforgettable travel moments.
The highlight came after, quite literally coming face to face with Rhinos, health and safety was definitely a priority with that Zimbabwean tour company.Watching these graceful animals in their natural environment made the morning hike a distant memory and well worth it.
