This place was perfect in terms of accommodation. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a beautiful view as well. They catered for vegans, and the service and staff was great ! We will definitely be back soon.

Can’t think of anything negative to say! Everything is perfect – the lodges, the game drives, the food – but most of all the staff. They really make you feel welcome and do all they can to make Amakhosi very special. We only stayed two nights but the memories will last forever.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The game drives were fantastic and we saw every member of "The Big Five".

The food was great (they cater for vegans) drinks were very well priced.


Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. And I would highly recommend a visit to Amakhosi Safari Lodge.

Genuinely hard to fault this wonderful place. Game reserve and the game drives seem incredibly well organised. We had 5 days there and saw so much - it was the perfect duration to stay. Really knowledgeable and helpful ranger and tracker allowed whole family to view amazing array of game and birds; two teenage children totally absorbed by it. Photographers paradise. Food plentiful and well done. Catered for gluten-free daughter wonderfully and without fuss. Accommodation in private lodges (no many of them) luxurious and restful. Evening meals alternated between conventional dining just for the family and more group based BBQs etc. Several little extras and thoughtful treats put on by the hotel. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Stayed in honeymoon suites which had plunge pools which were a great addition (but unheated so quite...
