The area is well-suited to walking, whether it's a short one or a long hike, there are trails to suit everyone's level of fitness and desire. Guided walking trails are offered. It's a great opportunity to see the little things, appreciate the sounds of the bush and learn about the fauna and flora of the area from your guide.
A popular hike is that to the top of Pomogwe Hill, which provides spectacular vistas across the park. There are also a number of circular routes, many of which pass by wonderful San rock paintings.
If you want to get really close to the wild, go on a guided walking tour with an armed scout through the game park. With luck, you'll encounter rhino during your walk and you'll definitely learn some things about the area from your knowledgeable guide.
4X4 game-viewing trips are also offered, which allow you to cover more distance and spot more wildlife as you wind your way slowly through the game park.
Guided pony trails are offered at Maleme Dam and take you into the Whovi Wild Area on horseback. This is a good way to get closer to the animals, as they are less wary of animals than humans.
There are a number of dams in the Matobo National Park. Fishing and boating are allowed on some of them.
The dams are full of an array of fish species, including bass and bream.
The granite rocks of the Matobo provided a perfect canvas to the San people who lived in the area over 2 000 years ago. Many of these are still in good condition and they are one of the major draw-cards to the area.
Giraffe, eland and kudus can be seen clearly at Nswatagi Cave, and the faint rhino seen at the White Rhino Shelter added fuel to the fire for reintroducing these amazing creatures to the park.
Other sites with San art include Bambata Cave, Inanke Cave and Silozwane Cave.
