Sibebe Rock

At more than 3,000 feet (around 800 meters) tall, Sibebe Rock is the largest granite pluton in the world and the second-largest monolithic rock. This impressive slab of volcanic rock is a staggering three billion years old and is one of the most important geological sites in Africa. 

Located a little over four miles (eight kilometers) from the capital of Mbane, along the Pine Valley Road, the rock covers around 16,500 hectares. There are no perfect views of the entire rock from below, making it hard to appreciate its scale. A hike up to the viewing spot is the best way to view the monolith.
