This is a trip extension and can be added on to the Classic Zimbabwe holiday.


  • Stay at Camp Amalinda, a luxurious lodge tucked into an ancient Bushman's shelter in the UNESCO Wold Heritage site of the Matobo Hills
  • Track black and white rhino on foot and in 4x4, looking out for giraffe, zebra and other game
  • Trek to the historic grave of Cecil Rhodes
  • See the ancient bush art of San tribe etched into the park's granite boulders

Stay among the granite boulders that are adorned with ancient rock art paintings and explore the sites, trekking to see the historic grave of Cecil Rhodes. Take sunset hikes and game drives into the National Park.

Bulawayo is the gateway to Matobo Hills National Park, so when you arrive at the airport there's a short half-hour drive to Camp Amalinda, your home for the next two nights. You'll have a full day to explore the park, looking out for giraffe, zebra and rhino. A guided hike will lead you around the surreal granite landscape to the grave of Cecil Rhodes, the famous British imperialist and politician, and some of the ancient rock art that was daubed onto the stone by San Bushmen many years ago.
Camp Amalinda | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

At A&K all of our journeys are individually tailored to suit your needs and timescale. As a guide, this 3 day suggested itinerary will cost from £230 per person, based on two sharing, excluding international flights.
