Located within the granite domes and castle kopjes of the Matobo Hills, Amalinda is a charming camp consisting of nine individually thatched rooms - including a trio of suites, ideal for honeymooners - all of which are set into the imposing boulders.
Its large swimming pool and bar overlook a waterhole and the lounge is tucked away into a bushman shelter with a panoramic view of the Matobo Hills. Delicious meals are served on an enormous teak table in the open air dining room. For the wine connoisseur, we recommend a visit to the camp's natural cave wine cellar. Sundowners can be enjoyed around a warm fire in the enclosed “boma” area.
Activities include rhino tracking on foot or by vehicle, bush walks, historical walks to ancient San rock art sites, excellent birding, a cultural tour to a nearby village, abseiling and pampering yourself in the Heritage Spa (at additional cost).

Established in 1953, this park was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2003. The terrain is littered with huge granite boulders that balance in striking rock formations. One highly protected area is used to safeguard endangered black and white rhinos, and the grave of Cecil Rhodes is an obvious attraction.
