Rhode-Matobo National Park of Zimbabwe

From Bulawayo, we proceeded to Rhode Matopo National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its bizarre rock formations, bushmen rock art and wildlife (home to rhinos and 1/4 of the World's eagle species). Eminent 19th statesman, mining magnate, colonial empire builder (had two colonies named after him by the age of 40) and founder of De Beers Diamonds, Sir Cecil Rhodes, was buried on top of a hill here, at a spot with a panoramic view appropriately named 'World's View".

What a fruitful and enriching day!
