Victoria Falls To Motobo Hills – Zimbabwe. Distance: 487km, Day 3


Leaving early, we head south towards Bulawayo to our peaceful African Lodge situated in the Matobo National Park. Today’s road is mainly straight running alongside different parks including Hwange National Park where the famous lion Cyril lived and died. Watch out for wildlife crossing the road.

Matobo National Park is known for the Matobo Hills – an amazing natural arrangement of balancing granite rocks formed by erosion.

Our accommodation is in individual, beautifully appointed Matobo style rooms set amongst the granite rocks with large sunlit windows offering breath-taking views out over the hills and surrounding bush.

The plan is to arrive around lunch time, so we have time to freshen up, have something to eat and then in the afternoon we have organised a safari into the National Park to see the last wild and free-roaming population of Rhino found anywhere in Africa. The park has both black and white rhinos.

If there is time you might manage a walk to the grave of Cecil John Rhodes, whom Rhodesia – now Zambia and Zimbabwe – was named after.

Dinner in our lodge.

Ask a question:

“My first experience of the Moto Aventures way of running bike tours. Absolutely fantastic! I loved everything about it, the bikes, the scenery, the accommodation, the company and the weather. All of it combined with Su and John's knowledge and expertise made this one of the best trips I had ever been on. My initial fears about my lack of off-road experience were very quickly discarded when we began our relaxed and expertly guided tour. A superb tour for those like me whom have had little off road experience. I left Andorra with a new found passion for off-road riding and such admiration for Su and John that I immediately booked my next adventure with them to South Africa.” – Gordon
