Why Visit

Although this area is outside of the Matopos National Park and there are no animals, the Communal lands have a natural beauty of its own and Ndebele communities live and farm here. The orbicular granite formation is very rare; the closest site is in Namaqualand, South Africa. This structure is from the mid-Proterozoic Eon and was formed approximately one billion years ago. Other similar sites in Finland and Chile enjoy the status of the protected site. Zimbabwe Scenic Sites
