We stayed 3 nights at Amakhala and had a wonderful time! The staff is very friendly, makes a real effort to learn your name and our driver Amy answered all our "stupid" questions and then some! We wish her well in her further career. Of course, all of this is secondary to the amazing variety of animals, seen in their... More

This place was a real gem. We chose Leeuwenbosch out of all the lodges in Amakhala as it offered the best value. I have been on safari before and stayed in tents and huts, so this seemed really luxurious. If you want a 'tribal' african experience then this lodge may not be your best choice. What Leeuwenbosch does have however,... More

We arrived at Reed Valley Inn and were immediately offered an upgrade for £25ish per person, we felt a little bit pushed into it, but actually it was totally the right decision to make the move up to Bush Lodge. It’s not that Bush Lodge is better accommodation (its 5* but Reed Valley looked just as lovely as we walked... More

Stayed here the last week of May toured with Brothers Safari! This place was wonderful! I loved the Facility and felt as though I was leaving family when I left! You will not be disappointed with this place! Want to see an elephant cruise by your room? stay here!

Me and my girl-friend booked 4 nights at the Reed Valley Inn. As we were the only guests during our stay we were very fortunate and were upgraded for a small additional fee to stay at the Bush Lodge.

We stayed at the safari lodge which is absolutely gorgeous - luxury accomodation with lovely touches like sparkling wine on ice by the bath every evening and chocolates and bedtime stories on your pillow after dinner. The cottages were lovely with outside shower and private terrace and plunge pool where you can sit and watch giraffe, zebras, monkeys etc drink... More

We are more than happy with our experience at the Amakhala Safari Lodge. The site on 8000 hectares of land is magnificent, the scenery while on the two game rides a day is absolutely stunning. Our suite was like a small cottage, cozy with all ameneties, well decorated and we felt like we were very private and safe. The lodge... More

I stayed with my elderly mother and friend at the Safari Lodge for two nights. The service was excellent and everyone went out of there way to be helpful and friendly. Although the animals are not that many as at game farms in the northern part of the country, it is the total experience that counts. The attention to detail... More
