What We Say
This stunning lodge offers four suites, each individually styled with an African flavour, set amongst a 5-star luxury setting. Tucked away between indigenous trees and bushes at the top of a hidden valley, this has the perfect setting for an intimate getaway.

Each suite is separate from the main lodge, which you access via a network of wooden walkways. The suites themselves are comfortable, to say the least, with large bathrooms, each having a spa bath overlooking the African bush, indoor and outdoor showers, a central fireplace and a private deck. The beds are either king size or two singles, depending on what you ask for. And then there's the honeymoon suite which has a huge four poster bed - what more could you want?!

To keep you busy there are morning & afternoon game drives through the Amakhala Game Reserve, a massive 18,000 acres bush and trees where you'll see the "big-5" animals, and countless other species ... zebra, giraffe, antelope .. the list goes on.

This is truly a remarkable place, you wont be disappointed.
