Luxury Lodge | Matobo Hills
Camp Amalinda is a widerness of granite, an African inspired refuge, where world-class facilities combine with the spiritual energy, allure and unique beauty, for which the Matobo Hills is so celebrated. Camp Amalinda's accomodation consists of nine thatched chalets (including two suites), cavernous structures that are built into and beside the huge granite boulders. The novelty of sleeping (quite literally) between the rocks doesn't wear off quickly. Each chalet at Camp Amalinda is individually designed and decorated, but all incorporate the surrounding rock. The bedrooms have large open windows with roll-down blinds. Polished concrete floors run throughout, dotted with various rugs and matts to give a softer touch. The beds are substantial and large mosquito nets come as standard. In some rooms, wooden storage units from a bygone era are found at the foot of the bed, in others a large ottoman takes its place. Camp Amalinda is a highly original camp which has been built into these hills with imagination and flare. It offers intelligent historical/cultural activities, relatively easy rhino-tracking, and some gentle safari activities in this very beautiful park.
