Amalinda Lodge

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

Amalinda Lodge is a visually stunning lodge built among the rocky outcrops of an ancient Bushman’s shelter. The granite kopjes provide the ultimate architectural backdrop for the 9 rock and thatch rooms and suites. Each is unique in design and configuration and feature hand-crafted furniture, romantically draped beds, outdoor deck and en suite bathroom. The dining and lounge area is built into the stone and is open on one side with views across the countryside. Enjoy drinks followed by a 3-course dinner served at the communal captain’s table. Relax by the large infinity pool or spoil yourself in the spa with a variety of treatments.

The lodge offers a variety of activities within Matobo National Park. They're personalized to your taste, such as rhino tracking by vehicle or on foot or joins a bicycle tour through the villages and rural homes. You may include walks to Nswatugi Cave rock paintings, which is one of the finest in the region, with images of giraffes and antelope. A tour of the park will include the "View of the World" which has sensational panoramas of the rocky, barren countryside and granite kopjes (especially at sunrise). There is a cultural opportunity to see the local community at work by visiting one of the nearby tribal villages, a secondary school and health clinic. This area has been carefully selected as a true reflection of everyday life.
