The Five Fun Activities You Can Enjoy at Amalinda Lodge
For almost three decades, the Stead Family has called the stunning granite landscape of Matopos their home. They’ve lived in harmony with the gorgeous wildlife that shares this home with them and, more recently, visitors who’d like to experience this stunning location for themselves.
Thus, the Amalinda Lodge was born.
Providing a luxury safari experience, the lodge is equipped with everything you and your family need to enjoy your vacation. In addition to the lodge, the Amalinda Private Villa offers an intimate experience in private surroundings.
Amalinda also serves as your gateway to an experience unlike any other. With the lodge as your base, you have the opportunity to explore the Matobo Hills, Zimbabwe’s oldest National Park. To ensure you receive the fullest experience possible, the Amalinda Lodge offers an array of interesting activities to allow you to get up close and personal with the park’s wildlife.
With the help of Amalinda Lodge’s experienced guides, you can be one of the few who gets to see them.
The Rhino Tracking Adventure allows you to search for animals, both in vehicles and on foot. The result is an unforgettable experience as you’re able to soak in a sight that few others will ever get to see.
You will see the wonderful homesteads that the Matabele have created and be treated to hospitality the likes of which you won’t find anywhere else. Filled with stunning natural scenery, this well-planned cycle route offers a deeper understanding of the people who’ve called the Matobo Hills their home for centuries.
You may choose to expand on this experience with the lodge’s cultural and village tours, which offer you the chance to spend more time with the Matabele. These visits allow you to tour the local “pole and dagga” huts directly, in addition to seeing a traditional healer in action.
Offering breathtaking views of the Matobo Hills, swimming in the pool provides a serene experience where you can wash away the labors of the day.
Referred to as “View of the World”, the tomb provides an interesting historical experience, as well as offering you a chance to reflect on the magnificence of your surroundings.
An interactive experience, the museum actively encourages guests to climb inside the trains and lose themselves in the days of traditional steam engines.
But it is so much more than that.
A slice of luxury surrounded by stunning scenery, Amalinda is also your ticket to learning more about Zimbabwe and its people. The Matobo Hills offer a little bit of everything, allowing you to explore one of Zimbabwe’s most unique safari destinations.
