Location: Matobo Hills
Style: Luxury Lodge
Nestled in the granite domes and castle kopjes of the Matobo Hills is Camp Amalinda, consisting of 9 individually thatched rooms including 2 honeymoon suites, which are set into the huge boulders.
The lounge and entertainment area is tucked away into a bushman shelter with a panoramic view of the Matobo Hills. Delicious meals are served on a massive teak table in the open air dining room.
A cosy library contains some of the old “African Classics”, whilst a secluded chess room, located amongst the tree tops, guarantees peace and tranquillity. Sundowners can be enjoyed around a warm fire in the enclosed “boma” area.
At the base of the camp is a large swimming pool with comfortable loungers and a bar, all over-looking a waterhole, and situated near the pool is the Heritage Spa.
The area is a malaria free zone and children are most welcome.
Camp Amalinda offers a range of activities, from rhino tracking by vehicle or on foot, exploring the hills which are probably the richest source of San rock art known, visiting Cecil John Rhodes tomb known as the “View of the World”, cultural visits with the local Matabele people, walking on the lookout for a variety of wildlife and birds, to abseiling.
