Magnificent thatch-roofed suites are nestled into the trees overlooking a busy watering hole for local fauna, with a stunning panoramic of South Africa's horizon as a backdrop. Picture enjoying evening cocktails on your private deck, or cooling off on a hot day with a soak in your personal plunge pool.
The main lodge is resplendent with lush lounging areas and impressive views of the plains and the many majestic beasts that travel across them. The outdoor fireplace is perfect for cooler evenings under the stars. Not all leisure time is spent at the lodge, however - there are 4x4 safari expeditions heading out twice a day to take you on a thrilling journey through the South African landscape and also sunset river cruises, for the optimum African experience.
Each suite is adorned with an ambient fireplace and hot or cold air conditioning for comfort. Spacious double showers and a large oval-shaped tub provide relaxation and contentment after a long day out on the terrain.
The Amakhala Bush Lodge is not only a 5-star getaway - it is also the recipient of being named one of the 101 Best Hotels in the World by the prestigious Tatler Travel Guide in 2011.
The lodge follows the Amakhala Heritage Collection standards, promising an exciting, enjoyable, and - most of all - luxurious stay.
Your stay at the Amakhala Bush Lodge begins at the Reed Valley Inn - a colonial reception area where you are transferred to the reserve.
If you wish to take advantage of the Safari Park and a chance to see the Big Five, the Safari Lodge is only a 45- minute trip by jeep to Port Elizabeth.
