Pictures from Matobo National Park
October 8 Bulawayo, Matobo National Park
October 9 Matobo to Machete Camp, South Africa
On our way to Matobo National Park, we stopped briefly in Bulawayo. This was the largest city we had been in since leaving Cape Town nearly three weeks ago.
Matobo National Park has rock formations that are made of granite over 2 billion years old. This one is called “Mother and Child”.
We went on a drive through the park with a guide who showed us how to stalk white rhinoceros on foot. The white rhino is not aggressive, so this is quite safe. This is a mother rhino with a baby about two years old.
And this is a male rhinoceros about 40 years old. Its horn was cut off in the 1990’s in an anti-poaching initiative and has grown back since then.
On our way to South Africa we passed through some country with a lot of large baobab trees.
