Amalinda review

Amalinda has been cleverly built around some of Motobos granite rocks so that our very spacious and luxurious room had a huge boulder which cleverly separated the sleeping area from the washing area. The boys loved the place with its infinity pool and open bar area which were the perfect place to hang out in the late afternoon as the sun plays on the magnificent rock face surrounding this lodge.

We went off on evening hikes (much less animal spotting here so safe for the boys to roam around) with a great young guide called Edwin who was really good at engaging the boys. The view of the Motobos from up high is simply breathtaking and your guide takes along the drinks so you can have a cool refreshing beer at the top as you watch the sun set over the Hills. Leopards love Motobo because they are shy and they have so many places to hide here but sadly we did not see any.

I fell in love with this place and the landscape instantly. It has a very spiritual feeling and we visited a number of caves with ancient rock paintings of the San people.

Our excellent guide Paul Hubbard (an archeologist) who spent a day taking us to all the key places of cultural interest is simply a mine of information. He is passionate about his country and his knowledge of its culture and history is encyclopedic. Sharon and Phillip who own the place are lovely people and made a point of joining us at dinner one evening.

placid atmosphere in a primitive location

The rooms are really amazing and set discretely, taking in consideration the unique morphology of the place.
The only negative aspect of our room was the floor: very shiny but a bit slippery, what requires to move carefully.

The activities are very interesting and differentiated, from game wieving to prehistorical paintings, which makes the stay varied.
Just an annotation on the park fees: park entrance is 15 USD per person and World's Wiev is 10 USD per person for non residents.
