Matobo Dam exudes a sense of peace and tranquility just like the rest of the Matobo National Park. The dam provides a view that brings solace to one's heart. Visitors can fish in the dam and those with boats (with electric motor or paddles) are allowed in certain areas of the dam. Pony trails are also available around the Dam area.
By road from Bulawayo: Take Robert Mugabe Way in the city centre; this turns into Matopos Road which continues south some 30Â km to the park boundary. This is a two-lane tarred road. A single lane tarred road continues to Matobo Dam and Rest Camp. The remaining roads in the park are gravel or earth, but suitable for most vehicles.
