We saved our stay in Amakhala Game Reserve for the last two nights of our holiday. No regrets here, it was a great stay. Sleeping in the tents was fantastic; nice and warm bed, sounds of the animals around you and fresh air! If you stay in this place the food, drinks and of course safari's are included in the... More

We arrived in time for the first safari outing. Our accommodation was certainly not tented. Quite comfortable and of good quality. We spent 2 nights and had 4 outings early evenings and early mornings. Excellent guides and took out great photographs

We spent two nights here at the end of our first trip to South Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed it - we were lucky enough to see the lion family on our first evening and watched them for several minutes. Staff all very friendly and helpful, food lovely and fresh, tent very comfy - excellent value for money.

Woodbury Lodge is different and better than the tented camp. The staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful and informative. We had four great game drives with Jason as our superb ranger guide. As it was a quiet time we had at most 5 people in our vehicle. We saw a wide variety of animals with 4 of the big 5 among... More

A great place to stay - we stayed for a magical three nights with five game drives. With everything you could possibly need even if sleeping under canvas! The tent was amazing with tea and coffee making facilities!. Didn't expect a bed with an electric blanket. But even better was the fact the electric blanket was turned on while we... More

Great tent, really comfortable, just what is needed after a game drive.We had mixed weather 60 mm rain and storm one night, the tent was great, warm and comfortable with an electric blanket. Helpful staff, the food needs a little focus. Great viewing balcony from the main house, relaxing and entertaining watching the animals meander by.

Everything you would imagine from an African safari. The place had a colonial British feeling to it. Your stay includes both morning and night drives, with a chance to relax in the afternoon. You also get breakfast, high tea, supper and snacks on your drives. I can't imagine why anyone would stay in a lodge for a safari, they're definitely... More

What a great place to stay, everything you could need. The bed was so comfortable with electric blankets which were put on for you before you turned in and the showers were amazing considering where you were. The food was excellent and plentiful and the staff were just amazing.

I stayed at Woodbury Tented Camp for two nights and did four game drives. The camp staff are all very friendly and attentive. The facilities are good for relaxing between game drives and it was always wonderful to have hot chocolate waiting for us in the evenings in the cold. The food was exemplary and balanced. The tent was well... More

Our guests stayed in Woodbury Tented Camp last May, as many guests have stayed before them. As always the Camp is great, the personell is sweet and considerate and the manager Gilles deserves all credits and thumbs up for his flexibility and profesionalism. If you are ever in doubt, both Woodbury Tented Camp and the Lodge are absolute gems in... More
