Camp Amalinda is most famous for offering Elephant interaction safaris. Another adventurous highlight on a safari in Zimbabwe is tracking Black and White Rhino on foot in the adjacent Whovi Game Park. Traditional game drives and horse riding in the park is also available.
At Camp Amalinda guests can enjoy fabulous bird watching - the Matobo Hills hosts the greatest variety and density of raptors anywhere in the world. You can also participate in a guided tour of some of the ancient rock-art sites in the Matobo Hills, a reminder of the Bushman (San people), known as the first modern humans of earth.
Cecil Rhodes, the driving force behind Britain's colonial ambitions in Africa (as well as founder of De Beers and the Rhodes Scholarship), was drawn by the spirituality of the Matobo Hills just as the San were. Visitors can marvel at the vistas from his grave at 'World's View' during their African lodge safari in Zimbabwe.
The Ndebele people also consider the Matobo Hills a very sacred place, and continue to hold important religious ceremonies in the area. Guests at Camp Amalinda are offered the opportunity to meet some of the Ndebele villagers who live in the vicinity of the camp, and even stay at a traditional African village.
