‘African Bush luxury’

A virtually perfect African retreat set against a back-drop of Aloe’s and indigenous fauna and flora. Amakhala Game Reserve Bush Lodges provides luxurious tented suites for a small number of guests. Each suite is equipped with a private viewing deck overlooking a watering hole, an outdoor shower and a plunge pool. The lodge itself offers a wide variety of varied cuisine plus a lounge and bar area where guests can get together and share stories of the African bush. The lodge provides game drives twice daily plus other activities such as canoe safaris and wine and cheese boat cruises.  Guests will find a warm welcome from knowledgeable staff keen to ensure that their African adventure is a thrilling and treasured memory.

In Our Opinion

‘Whether your priority is comfort or game viewing, Amakhala Bush Lodge will provide each in equally high measure to offer a luxury Bush experience; an in-house therapist for massage in the comfort of your own suite plus enticing, varied cuisine are just a couple of the delightful experiences you may expect from your stay’

A game drive through Amakhala Game Reserve will leave you mesmerised by its diverse vegetation and spectacular scenery; sunlit grassy savannah plains, a mosaic of bushveld plants and the spellbinding Bushman’s River are inspirational. Amakhala is home to great African mammals, birds and insects. The main draw is of course the Big 5 which can be viewed around this area. The Big 5 includes:
• Lion
• Leopard
• Rhino
• Elephant
• Buffalo

Game drives are held twice daily at Amakhala Game Reserve Bush Lodges; in the morning and in the evening so that visitors get to see different creatures. Guests are also welcome to indulge in the sundowner canoe safaris and a cheese and wine boat cruise.

An Initiative of the Amakhala Game Reserve
The Amakhala Conservation Centre is largely funded by the Sindisa Foundation (a non-profit conservation organisation) and has three main objectives:
• To promote environmental awareness
• To identify and support research projects that benefit wildlife conservation in general.
• To encourage and advise on various conservation projects
Following on from the successful re-introduction of 15 species onto Amakhala, the conservation centre continues to investigate the reintroduction of other species like Cape vulture into the area.
