Welcome to Safari Lodge
The Fair Trade accredited luxury four star Safari Lodge is nestled in a valley of indigenous bush on the 7200ha Amakhala Game Reserve in South Africa's ecologically diverse Eastern Cape. The Big 5 Amakhala Game Reserve has been voted by East Cape Tourism as the best Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape and the Safari Lodge was voted by Africa Geographic as number one on a list of five best places in Africa to view elephants in their natural surroundings. The atmosphere of the unique thatch and canvas Safari Lodge will complete your safari experience and will enable you to connect with nature. Enjoy morning and afternoon safari's in search of the Big 5 in their natural habitat on Amakhala Game Reserve, a relaxing boat cruise on the Bushmans River and if you stay on our three night Tusker's Package, a visit to the Addo National Elephant Park. The Safari Lodge offers all the comforts of a luxury lodge and is an undisturbed retreat.
African tribal design-inspired owners and artists, Mike and Justine Weeks’ meticulous attention to detail is reflected in the fine African bead work and handcrafted designs that are evident throughout this prestigious lodge. The view from the suites and lounge area is of the waterhole where you will witness the playfulness of the monkeys and the antelope, giraffe and elephant come to quench their thirst.
