Amadwala Lodge
Reviewed July 7, 2009

The Amadwala Lodge was the ideal end to my African safari experience on an Intrepid Tour. Although I only stayed at the lodge for one night, it was evident the hard work and dedication Chris and her team outlay for their guests. I was able to easily upgrade to a Chalet, which was in executive condition.

Thanks for making the final night of my African experience memorable and for making me feel welcome to your great continent. Between organising transfers and activities - you have ensured I will certainly be back to Africa, and your lodge.

Aleksandr Taylor-Gough.

My partner and I have recently returned from our wedding in south africa and I'm proud to say having watched 18 months of remote organization and what appeared to be at times turmoil, I'm proud to say the wedding days itself and the days preceding and post the day were shere bliss. With visitors joining us from the UK we really wanted a combined wedding day location and venue where we could accomodate our guests, enjoy a ceremony, eat and party without having to travel more than a few meters or to mission to far flung locations to ferry people miles across Johannesburg to find beds. We also wanted somewhere guests could join us for breakfast, or chill by the bar or have the option of simply relaxing in our own private accomodation in the bush. We found all this and of course in this case we found the obligatory... more, at Amadwala Lodge! Amadwala is a blend of welcoming, homely, private and familiar. Chris owns and runs the lodge with contributions from her mum and her daughter, her partner, several dogs and a wealth of staff, all of whom she trusts implicitly and who remain present but unobtrusive, polite and engaging and demons on the bar-b-q and in the breakfast/dinner lounge. All our UK guests felt safe and relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of wooden cabins hidden from view in acres of secure surroundings where the origins of man can be explored just down the road. The wedding itself was a perfect day and during the 5 days around the wedding the lodge served us well as a gathering place to enjoy time with friends and family, access to visit Jo'berg and enjoy some down time and big celebrations. Thanks to everyone at Amadwala for making our wedding days the best days. A&B
