The perfect stay, the owners, Corné and Miriam, are so pleasant and helpful people, they even nicelly served me a beautiful BBQ at the BOMA on my last night there. the accommodations are wide, comfortable and right into the bushes, so can cant get the "Real safari felling" ... The Balule reserve is that perfect, the game drives were great....

I just adore this place! This lodge is situated in the middle of the "wild" and you really feel and sometimes experience this!

We stayed here for 2 nights in march and we had a lovely time. The rondavel is nice,basic but clean and quite spacious. At night we heared the lions roar which sounds amazing.

Miriam is a good host. The accommodation is nice and good. The game drive with Bert was excellent as well: he will do everything to show you the beauties of the bush and, of course, the animals. Dinner at night was simpel but tasty. Well done Miriam!

We booked several weeks ago into Amukela, and were very much looking forward to it. We have just arrived in South Africa and are jet lagged but happy to be here.

We were really excited to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday at Amukela but it turned out to be really disappointing! 1) We were put in a bungalow with NO bed for our daughter! They've put a juvenile bed in our bungalow although they knew that our daughter is 10 years old. When we complained, they simply put a mattress on...

I stayed at the Amukela Game Lodge last weekend, together with my bf. As this was my first time ever, to stay at a lodge in a game reserve, I was very excited to go.
