Zimbabwe: Matabo Hills 1

Posted by
: Helen : (Helen is photographing in Melbourne,, Australia) on 18 December 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

The Matobo National Park

"The Matobo Hills are composed entirely of granite, making up the Matopos Batholith. The granite weathers into fantastic shapes, such as the balancing rocks known as Mother and Child Kopje. Between the granite mountains, narrow valleys form. These are often swampy valleys known as dambos or vleis, due to runoff from the whaleback mountains. These valleys form the headwaters of the Maleme, Mpopoma and Mtsheleli rivers, and the source of the Thuli River is just east of the park.."
