Amalinda Lodge and The Private Villa is built in the caves and crevices in-between the huge granite boulders that the magnificent Matopos has on offer.
The lodges are set within the granite boulders on different levels and each have a distinctive look and feel. There are 9 lodges in total comprising of 3 suites, 3 family rooms (with 2 double beds in each), 2 double rooms and 1 twin room.
The lodges all have electric blankets for the winter season, showers and toilets (which are built into the granite) and the camp is open to children of all ages.
Activities include hikes to the tops of giant granite dwalas, walks to the world renowned caves and bushman paintings, game drives, abseiling, rhino walks and relaxing in the lodge’s spa.
Thatched rooms en suite all built in the rock face of the Matopos Granite.
Luxury furnishings contrast with stone and boulders in the rooms with original cave paintings dating over 50,000 years old.
All rooms overlook the Matopos and surrounding bush areas.

At 3pm it is time for the next afternoon excursion and this is usually completed by about 6.30/7pm.
