Amalinda Lodge is an exclusive, privately owned safari lodge in Matopos, that is tucked away into an ancient Bushman’s shelter. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Matobo Hills, the oldest National Park in Zimbabwe which was first established in 1926 as a bequest by Cecil John Rhodes.
The granite domes and castle kopje’s echo the essence of tranquillity and the majesty of untamed Africa, where wildlife and birdlife species thrive in prolific numbers. The Matopos area is famous for its high concentrations of Leopard and Black Eagle, as well as for its healthy population of the endangered Black and White Rhino making the area one of the most sought-after destinations within Zimbabwe.
The lounge and entertainment areas are tucked away into a Bushman shelter with a panoramic view of the Matobo Hills. Delicious meals are served on a massive teak table in the open air dining room.
At the base of Amalinda Lodge is a large swimming pool with comfortable loungers and a bar, all overlooking a waterhole.
Amongst this most miraculous backdrop, which is famous to the Matobo Hills, is an irresistible treasure worth experiencing – situated near the pool is our Heritage Spa. Spoil yourself with a full Body Massage, Back and Neck Massage, Manicure or Pedicure.
We are in a malaria free zone and children are most welcome. Children can spend their days’ rock climbing and chasing rock lizards, skinks and Giant Plated Lizards. Our friendly staff is on hand to cater to your every need and together with them, Amalinda Lodge extends to you our warmest welcome.
