Stayed 2 nights - amazing experience. Wonderful location with great viewing deck onto the plains. Our driver, Melumsi, was fantastic. Knowlegable and most of all passionate about the animals. Passion for animals is what this reserve is about. It is a true safari experience. They don't drive 5 jeeps to an animal and crowd it ('2 max' rule). As such... More

Stayed for 2 nights and had an incredible safari experience. Our guide Mel was outstanding and found all the animals we had hoped to see. Food and accommodation was first rate. Would recommend highly.

We stayed in tent no 1 which to us was rhe most wondrful tent. As also in other places in amakhala we were impressed by the effort of the rangers. Scenery is very nice, boat trips take place regulary and are very calm and beautiful. Bery good value for money. Tents are very nice.

Spent three nights here and cannot say enough good things about Woodbury Tented Camp! Despite being one of the more reasonably priced options as far as private game reserves go, we came out of it feeling so incredibly pampered. The staff were simply outstanding (both at the lodge and our guide!). The tents are all very private and offer every... More

We spent two nights here in October and had a lovely stay. The communal areas looking over the reserve are amazing. The day we arrived an elephant was wandering next to a tortoise just metres away. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially our ranger Lenny and the service was in General very high. The tents are pretty much... More

An awesome private game reserve, small enough to provide an easy opportunity to see all the big 5 and more, quality luxury accomodation and accompanying safe facilities in the bush, attentive service with excellent meals, we were made feel very special and recommend 100%.

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
