Amukela is a small lodge that offers everything you need. In the Summer the aircon and the Pool are a big plus. From the Pool and the terrace you can watch elephant and impalas walking by. The stuff was really friendly and helpful and the food was really good as well. Go on a Game Drive in the private Balule... More

We spend three nights at Amukela and we highly recommend a stay there. The rondavels are clean and in good shape, air conditioned with a separate bathroom with shower. Breakfast and dinner was prepared individually after arriving from the game drives. For the time between the morning drive and the evening drive there is a small pool at the property.... More

I just adore this place! This lodge is situated in the middle of the "wild" and you really feel and sometimes experience this! The picture showing elephants near the camp is not fiction: it can actually happen if you are lucky! Near the bar area there is an animal drinking pool where you can spot all sorts of animals if...

The lodge is inside Balule game reserve where we had 2 game drives. We saw lions, elephants, rhinos, giraffes and many more. The staff is nice and... More

Miriam is a good host. The accommodation is nice and good. The game drive with Bert was excellent as well: he will do everything to show you the beauties of the bush and, of course, the animals. Dinner at night was simpel but tasty. Well done Miriam!
