“I strongly believe that tourism in Bulawayo can thrive if we exploit cultural and heritage tourism to its full potential” said Minister of State for Provincial Affairs for Bulawayo, Cde Nomthandazo Eunice Moyo.

World Heritage listed Maboto Hills are located 35kms south of Bulawayo, allowing access to the distinctive rock landforms. The area abounds with large boulders, which provide plentiful of natural shelters and as such bear traces of early human occupation. Not surprisingly, rock art dates back at least 13,000 years, and represents one of the highest concentration of rock art in Southern Africa.

Friends of Australian Rock Art hopes that WA State Ministers will soon realise that the same applies for Murujuga, which is located less than 20kms away from Karratha.
