Camp Amalinda is situated just outside Bulawayo, the second largest city in Zimbabwe and is nestled in the granite domes and kopjes of the Matobo Hills and has some of the most majestic rock scenery in the world. This exclusive safari lodge is tucked away in an ancient Bushman’s shelter within the Matobo National Park. Camp Amalinda echoes the essence of tranquillity and the majesty of untamed Africa. Amalinda consists of nine individually thatched rooms including two honeymoon suites, which are set into the huge boulders and have a panoramic view of the Matobo Hills. The camp has a central area with a library, a chess room located amongst the treetops, and an open-air dining room with a huge teak table. There is a natural cave wine cellar, and a “boma” area with a fireplace. The camp has a swimming pool overlooking a waterhole where resident wildlife comes to drink, and a heritage spa. Mammal and bird species are prolific and include the highest concentrations of leopard and black eagle in the world, as well as a healthy population of the endangered black rhino. Activities include game viewing by foot or vehicle. You can track the endangered black rhino or drive through the granite hills in the footsteps of Cecil John Rhodes and visit his world famous tomb known as the “View of the World”. Matabele cultural visits are also on offer.
