This was the first safari experience that my wife and I have had ... and a quite unforgettable one it was too. Driving along the road approaching the camp, Amakhala doesn't seem that big but when you are driving around inside the park there was more than enough to see and so many different areas to visit over the three...

Our stay at the camp was the perfect addition to our holiday in South Africa. The staff clearly enjoys their work and provides excellent service. We couldn’t get enough of the game drives as they were so much fun and there was so much to see. Our ranger bent over backwards to show us all the exciting wild animals. In... More

We stayed at Woodbury Tented Camp 3 times over the past 3 years and loved every stay, this last one was no exception. We had 2 nights there and were treated so well. I love the simplicity of the tents, beautifully set out, but not overly fussy. The staff is fantastic and we had a great guide. The cozy feel... More

From the gracious welcome to the last thrilling game drive, everything about Woodbury was beyond our greatest expectations--and this was not our first safari. All the rangers were highly qualified and friendly, but we felt blessed to be accompanied by James whose knowledge was matched by his wit, wisdom and tenacity, a rare person whose passion for his work is...

Cannot fault the place or the experience in any way! The tented camp is inside Amakhala Game Reserve, and therefore gets you as close to camping amongst wild African game without actually having to do so. The accommodation was first class, with an attention to detail I have rarely even seen in bricks-and-mortar hotels, and when the lights go out,... More

Recommended by our travel agent and a great place to see the animals, no leopards whilst we were there if you need all the badges. The staff and situation were all excellent, and a great feeling to be camping in "wild" Africa.

A tent by the forest, views of rhinos & giraffes in the wild from the tent- Made it an absolutely wonderful way to end the trip along the garden route. Great ranger and staff at the restaurant making sure every request of ours was fulfilled! Definitely makes it a value for the money paid!
