In 1996 the original Farm Homestead was converted into a Restaurant, bar and lodge reception. Now known as The Farmhouse , it is located 48Kms from Bulawayo on the Matopos road, in the heart of the Matopos World Heritage site.
The restaurant veranda overlooks the indigenous garden and rock swimming pool, where guests can relax by the poolside or spend the evening around the open campfire in the enclosed traditional Boma. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in the restaurant, where our chefs specialize in healthy, home cooked meals. On certain days we offer a Braai dinner. Enjoy food cooked on an open fire whilst sitting outdoors on a warm evening under the stars.
Guests are accommodated in 12 thatched, Cape Dutch style cottages, which are built on the fringe of a majestic granite outcrop. Each individual cottage has a twin bedded, bedroom, en-suite shower, toilet and wash-hand basin, open plan lounge with tea/coffee facilities and fridge.
The Farmhouse Lodge and Restaurant provides the ideal location from which visitors can discover the many natural wonders of the Matopos. Guests can participate in the many activities offered at the Lodge or arrange their own trips in the area.
Camp Amalinda is a unique four-star luxury lodge set in the granite boulders of The Matobo Hills, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This exclusive, privately owned & family run safari lodge is the premier accommodation in the area. Tucked away in an ancient bushmans shelter, Camp Amalinda boasts a spa, infinity rock pool, library, wine cellar, sunset lounge, show kitchen and many varied activities. Ranging from game drives to rhino trekking, cultural tours, hikes to the renowned San bushman paintings & a chance to follow in the footsteps of Cecil John Rhodes at his world famous tomb known as “View of the World.”
Big Cave Camp reposes atop an enormous granite whaleback, commanding inspirational views across the famous Matobo National Park. Sophisticated African architecture incorporates colossal boulders into a luxuriously appointed thatched lodge positioned amidst ancient Khoisan rock art.
Retire at a day’s end to the natural rock-pool and sundeck, the Leopard’s Lair lounge and bar, a cave-style boma for pre-dinner drinks or the popular lodge library. The seven thatched A-frame cottages, each with en-suite bathroom and private balcony, resonate African creative flair.
Find solitude within an intimate retreat as secluded as the original Kalanga grain bins that nestle amongst the rocks.
” A superbly beautiful site in the Matopos. Friendly efficient staff who cater for your every request. Fabulous sunset on Lightening Rock and bush breakfast never to be forgotten. A pristine collection of rock paintings that are easily accessed on a morning guided walk. Splash in the rock pool to cool off at the end of a warm day. End off a relaxing day around a boma fire into the night. What a great experience!”
