my husband and i have just spent 2 nights at amakhosi and had a really great time. We have been to several other game lodges in South Africa but Amakhosi certainly is one of the best.After a long 6 hour drive from Joburg we arrived and were very impressed by the location. We had chosen the Honeymoon suite (despite being married for 26 years) the room was wonderful complete with large deck with pool overlooking the river where luckily for us a family of elephants came to drink. All the staff made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.Meal times were great in the beautiful outdoor dining area watching the resident hippo. Game drives were great, although perhaps not as many animals as other reserves, each drive had many highlights. High tea in the bush was just one of the memorable moments. Altogether a wonderful relaxed stay at beautiful location and great staff. Cant wait to go back
