Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Visitors to the Matobo Hills in southern Zimbabwe invariably end up tongue-twisted in awe of the gentle magic of this ancient landscape. Amalinda Lodge adds to the effect.

Woven into the giant granite boulders that make this 44,000-hectare game reserve unique, Amalinda Lodge combines luxury with a genuine connection to the surrounding landscape. Rooms are cavernous palaces - built into, around, above and below the rocks - that are decorated and furnished with a rustic charm belying their comforts: large showers, enormous beds; outdoor showers; private decks and achingly beautiful views.

The main lodge winds through the rocks with a delightful bar cave, a dining deck that juts out into the trees, an open-air fireside lounge, a reading lounge and, the central focus, a large natural rock pool and gazebo.

Service is homegrown friendliness combined with regimented polish; the food is gourmet bush fare, complete with twirly reductions, piled up roulades and homemade breads. And with just a handful of rooms the atmosphere is as quiet as the rocks and the full-time wellness therapist is on hand to enhance that feeling.

Priscilla takes great care of all your needs in an efficient unimposing manner and Billy is an accomplished and highly entertaining guide with a love for his country that is most refreshing. He will take you on a gentle interpretive bush walk up the nearest kopjie (say \"copy\" and he'll be impressed) and guided game drives and scenic tours of the Matopos National Park.

Facilities

Full board accommodation; nine en-suite chalets including two honeymoon suites; eco camp with fire-heated water; outdoor showers; comfortable beds and private decks; dining deck; bar and lounge area; reading area; fireside sitting area; large rock pool and poolside bar; health spa; road transfers from Bulawayo

Activities

The Matobo Hills are a World Heritage Site for their staggering concentration of San rock art; the scenery is beautiful and many people wish they'd booked an extra night or even two here.

Walk the grounds in safety with amazing views, plants, birds and small animals to be seen; game drives into Matopos Naitonal Park with excellent black and white rhino tracking; general antelope, though not abundant as in the major game reserves, is diverse and adds to the experience rather than takes centre stage; birdlife is prolific with a great variety of raptors; plantlife is extraordinarily diverse making for fascinating interprerive bush walks; swimming; health spa; library; community projects
