Amakhala Game Reserve offers a range of morning and evening safaris and other activities to enable our guests to experience the fascinating flora, fauna and birdlife of the Eastern Cape. This is your opportunity to return to nature. Go on game drives in an open Land Rover in search of our wildlife – lion, black & white rhino, elephant, cheetah, buffalo, giraffe, black wildebeest, zebra, tortoise and over 16 antelope species – or take a night drive with cheese and wine sundowners before searching for elusive nocturnal animals such as lynx, porcupine and spring hare. Luxury accommodation is offered in our lodges: Bush Lodge, Leeuwenbosch, Reed Valley Inn, The Safari Lodge, Woodbury Lodge and Carnarvon Dale.
Situated in the bush, at the top end of an open valley in the reserve, Bush Lodge's luxury tents overlook a watering point with big sky views. Each suite has a secluded private viewing deck with intimate plunge pool.
The Country House on Leeuwenbosch caters for the whole family. We offer two family suites, baby sitting services and a children’s programme.
This Lodge has been beautifully converted into four luxury en-suite rooms, three twins and one really special honeymoon suite and surrounded by indigenous gardens.
