Camp Amalinda is perhaps most famous for offering Elephant back safaris. Another adventurous highlight 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. Around Camp Amalinda, guests can enjoy fabulous bird watching - the Matobo Hills are home to the greatest variety and density of raptors anywhere in the world.
Camp Amalinda guests 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), southern Africa's earliest human inhabitants, and the first of many to be drawn to the power of the Matobo Hills.
Cecil Rhodes, the driving force behind Britain's colonial ambitions in Africa (as well as founder of De Beers and the Rhodes Scholarship), was also drawn by the spirituality of the Matobo Hills, and visitors can marvel at the vistas from his grave at 'World's View' (or Malindidzimu 'the Place of Spirits' to the Ndebele people).
Contemporary Ndebele people also consider the Matobo Hills a very sacred place, and continue to hold important religious ceremonies in the area. Guests are offered the opportunity to meet some of the Ndebele villagers who live in the vicinity of the camp, and an overnight stay at a traditional African village can even be arranged during their Zimbabwe vacation.
