About Camp Amalinda

This unique four-star luxury lodge is located within the granite boulders of the beautiful Matobo Hills. Set in a UNESCO World Heritage site, this exclusive and family run lodge is regarded as the premier accommodation in the area. The lodge is nestled away in an ancient bushmans shelter, with rooms built into natural caves. Camp Amalinda does not disappoint boasting excellent amenities, such as a spa, infinity rock pool, library and wine cellar and a wide variety of activities.

Home to Cecil John Rhodes' world famous tomb, you can drive through the granite hills to visit what’s known as "View of the World", or you can explore the sites of the renowned San Bushman Cave Paintings where sacred ceremonies were held by mysterious nomads. Alternatively, for an unforgettable safari experience, get your walking boots on and follow an experienced guide tracking both black and white Rhinos.

Camp Amalinda also offers the opportunity to stay in the Home-Stead. A beautiful family home, can be exclusive to you. Spacious and beautifully furnished, the house features a master bedroom, two additional bedrooms and an open plan dining room. Make this your home away from home.

Location

Situated within a 1.2 square kilometre private concession looking out over the stunning Matobo Hills in Zimbabwe.

How to get there

If coming from Victoria Falls, it is possible to drive to Matobo National Park although it does take around six and a half hours.

Alternatively, a quicker route is to fly into Harare International Airport, and a pick up can be organised from there.

When to go

June through to October is the dry season in Zimbabwe and is regarded as the best time to go as the animals congregate at the few and far between water sources. At the beginning of the season, vegetation can be relatively dense making the animals harder to spot, and the temperature at night tends to drop. However, towards the end of the season vegetation is sparser meaning wildlife spotting is at it’s absolute best. Although, nights can be hot and humid.

November through to May is the green season, where rain is common especially between December and February. With vegetation at its most dense, wildlife can be harder to spot but the bush looks beautiful with plenty of wildflowers and baby animals. There are fewer visitors at this time of year, and prices are considerably reduced.

Important Information

Visas
It is necessary to have a visa to visit Zimbabwe. It is possible to get one upon arrival or from the Zimbabwean Embassy in London. If you choose to get one on arrival, make sure you take enough cash with you in small notes to pay for your visa at the airport. You can also apply for a visa online before travel.

Health
All visitors should be medically insured. It is advisable to know your blood group type in case of an emergency. Please do ask for up to date health advice in your home country.

Photography
Please be sensitive when photographing local people and their villages. Ask the guide or the villagers first. Be careful when photographing public buildings and persons in uniform - again, ask first.
