Madzimudzangara Cave

Madzimudzangara Cave' is a cave that has some fine rock art.The paintings are so thickly painted it is quite difficult to disentangle them. Unfortunately, many of the paintings are hardly distinguishable due to the mineral salts that have leached from the rock and their proximity to the road means they have been vandalized with charcoal writing and fires.


Why Visit

Very easy access, just 80 metres from the old strip road from Mutoko to Murehwa. If people need a reminder that the rock art is deteriorating through both natural factors and the action of man, then this cave provides the evidence. Set in an outstanding natural shelter, the paintings are now a mere shadow of what they were and efforts need to be made to record them before they are gone forever.
