What Guests Love About Amalinda Lodge

Guests absolutely adore their stays at Amalinda Lodge. The unique rooms, built into natural rock formations, are frequently highlighted as one of the lodge’s most striking features. Room 9, for example, with its rock walls, thatched roof, skylights, and king-size bed, is a particular favourite.

The dining experience at the lodge is another stand-out aspect. Meals are served in an open-air dining room, with a communal table and several smaller ones. The food is of high quality, with a set menu that caters to all dietary needs. Guests rave about the delicious three-course lunches and dinners, and how they leave the table feeling content and well-fed.

Amalinda Lodge also offers a variety of activities that guests thoroughly enjoy. White Rhino tracking on foot, visiting Cecil Rhodes’ grave, and climbing to see the cave paintings of the bushmen are all popular choices. The game drive, where guests can spot more white rhinos, kudu, rock hyrax, and hippos, is also incredibly exciting.

The guides at Amalinda Lodge frequently receive high praise for their knowledge and dedication. They go above and beyond to show guests interesting sights and facts, making each experience truly personalized and informative.

Guests often speak fondly of the stunning pool area and the wellness spa, both of which are ideal for relaxation. The lodge’s convenient services like airport transportation, free parking, and daily laundry service also significantly enhance their stay.

Many also appreciate the lodge’s proximity to popular attractions like Cecil Rhode’s Burial Place, and the option to stay in a private villa, which comes with a private chef and a butler/waiter.
