Check Availability & Book Online


Amakhala Game Reserve is an ideal choice for your Big 5 Safari destination. This 7000 ha reserve is renowned for its truly awesome topography, created by the slowly meandering Bushman’s River running through it.

Amakhala Game Reserve is located between the Greater Addo and Frontier Country area in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, just a 45min drive from Port Elizabeth.


The 5 star rated Bush Lodge was named in the 2011 Tatler Travel Guide among the 101 Best Hotels in the World. It was the only hotel in the Eastern Cape South Africa to win a place on this prestigious list.


Rooms/ Tents

Discreetly positioned in the bush at the top end of an open valley in the reserve, each of the en-suite, tented and thatched suites with wooden floor overlooks a watering point with big sky views. Each suite has a private viewing deck with plunge pool. The spacious tents have hot and cold air-conditioning, fireplace, large oval bath and alfresco double showers.
