Overview

Amakhala Bush Lodge is a 5 star Game Lodge positioned in the bush at the top end of an open valley in the Amakhala Game Reserve with en-suite, tented and thatched suites each overlooking a wild life watering point.

Each suite has a secluded private viewing deck with intimate plunge pool. Within the spacious interior hot and cold air-conditioning, an atmospheric fireplace, large oval bath and romantic alfresco double showers make this the perfect bush retreat.

The main lodge offers dining and lounge areas and an expansive viewing deck with magnificent views of the plains. Evenings are spent around the outdoor fireplace admiring the unspoilt African star-scape. The guest reception is at the colonial Reed Valley Inn, from where guests are transferred into the reserve to enjoy the comfort and elegance of the tented accommodation.

Bush Lodge offers twice-daily expeditions by open 4×4 safari vehicles you will traverse over 18 000 acres weaving through 5 of the country’s 7 biomes. The abundant wilderness of Amakhala Game Reserve preserves a complex and diverse ecosystem, providing habitat for over 60 mammal species including the big five. The Bushman’s River winds its way through the reserve providing its life source of water to the myriad of wildlife and birdlife.

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
