“Great views from the deck - zebra at breakfast!”
Reviewed February 18, 2011

We choose this tented camp as we did not want the Five Star treatment for our two-day safari. It met our expectations in that we saw lots of wildlife and birds. Our guide was fairly new but was enthusiastic and answered most of our questions well. Beds comfortable but a chair in the tent would have been welcome. The food was adequate but not brilliant - breakfast was the best meal. I would recommend this camp to anyone who prefers a little less luxurious experience. You see all the game but without the jacuzzi and massages!

This is a brilliant place that is luxurious wihtout being stuffy. The game reserve is a wonderful and facinating place, small enough to see lots but big enough to explore and not feel the animals are on parade. This is enhanced by the excellent rangers. Our ranger, Amy, was outstanding and her enthusiam, knowledge and passion for the conservation on the reserve was fabulous to witness. The reserve is a cooperative of 4 former big farms in the area who all shared a love of wildlife and this really comes through as a common attitude amoungst the staff. The tended accomodation is a very reasonalble way to do safari and its briliant - a comfy way to feel like you are in the bush. Also everything is included and generously put on, so you dont have to worry about a pesky bar bill at the end. You certianly don't feel like you are being put through the tourist mill here. Sho! Its great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Woodbury Tented Camp is one of the hidden jewels of the Eastern Cape. Tucked into an embracing hillside thicket and overlooking the ancient floodplain of the Bushman’s River, the camp offers rustic and secluded luxury, and an authentic African wildlife safari experience. Eight large, comfortable, en-suite tents on raised bases and with private patios provide the seclusion, tranquility and an intimacy with the bush that you would expect on a visit to Amakhala Game Reserve. Each tent has twin or double beds - at your request. Camp life is centered around the stone, thatch and canvas main dining and lounge area, with its expansive deck overlooking the Woodbury plain and waterhole. A wide variety of game species such as zebra, giraffe, buffalo, eland, rhino and elephant fill the passing parade while fish eagles soar overhead, their hauntingly evocative cry echoing across the valley. Soak up the sun while lazing on a recliner next to the pool; sip a refreshing drink or enjoy tea and delicious, freshly baked cakes, before venturing out into the reserve on your next expedition. ... more   less
