We enjoyed the simplicity of the place with the little surprises and details. Miriam and Wilma are very helpful and made the place like a home for us for 4 days. The small game drive at the bush and a day in kruger is amazing because it's very exclusive for just us three as well as our tour to blyde... More

Very happy for choosing Ku Sungula for our 2-night stay in Balule. The place is in such a natural location that makes you feel so relaxed. Good amenities and meals. Staff was very helpful too. We might visit soon.

Beautiful, peaceful, charming. Nature around the corner. A genuine safari experience. Friendly staff and good service. Dinners could be better but that's not so important. We really recommend this lodge.

My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights and organised one walking tour and one game drive. Both of which were amazing and we saw lots of animals. The room was excellent, spacious, very clean, air con. Food was good and the place was impressive and better than the pictures suggest. Would recommend this place to stay.

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
