Beyond the Lodge – Shashani, Matobo Hills

Nestled within a private concession and built on the edge of a giant rock dome, Shashani Matobo Hills part of the Hideaways Collection, encourages one to observe the landscape in all its splendour, from patio to the horizon, and beyond the lodge.

Being in the business of creating life-changing experiences and making dreams come true, Hideaways includes locations where the veil between heaven and earth is thin. This is Shashani Matobo Hills Lodge, a property that offers inspiration in the heart of Africa.

In the spirit of the inquisitive, watch our third episode of Beyond the Lodge, where Managing Director Garth Jenman and Travel Expert Kim Sparrow discuss culture, ancient African rock art, archeological remains as well as the feats and expeditions of Cecil John Rhodes. They also explore the area by following in the footsteps of the elusive rhino, to which the Matobo National Park is home. Witnessing these endangered animals is nothing short of an honour, and part of the vast and significant biodiversity of the park. Special guest Norman Bourne from Black Rhino Safaris speaks us through a day out in Matobo Hills National Park tracking rhino, exploring caves filled with ancient rock art and climbing to the top of World’s View.

Join us in this location that soothes the soul; undulating granite hills, covered in colourful lichen and blanketed in history awakening one’s curiosity, demanding the respect of presence.
