The granite domes and castle kopjes of the Matobo Hills, Zimbabwe, are among the most majestic rock sceneries in the world. Some of the most majestic granite scenery in the world is found in the Matobo Hills. It is here that the hopes, trials and tribulations of the San Bushmen are recorded in the ancient rock art. The granite domes and castle kopjes of the Matobo Hills, echo the essence of tranquility and the majesty of untamed Africa where mammal and bird species are prolific. Included here are the highest concentrations of Leopard and Black Eagle in the world, as well as a healthy population of the endangered Black and White Rhino.Nestled in this unique range of hills is Camp Amalinda. Amalinda consists of nine individually thatched rooms including 2 honeymoon suites, which are set into the huge boulders. These 2 suites have just recently been refurbished and it brings us great pleasure to introduce to you for the first time “The Lobengula Suite” and “The Rhodes Suite”. Each are steeped in African historical artefacts of a bygone era from these two famous men who once walked around these very rocks.

Tucked away into an ancient bushman’s shelter, Camp Amalinda’s charm will leave an indelible impression on every visitor, it’s spirituality almost tangible.  Amalinda's lodges all have electric  blankets for the winter season. Showers and toilets are built into the granite rock face, giving a unique accommodation experience.
