Wilderness indulgence at an opulent Eastern Cape lodge
Perched at the top end of an open valley in the Amakhala Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape, Bush Lodge is a far cry from the average safari experience. Accommodation consists of en-suite tented and thatched suites overlooking a watering hole flanked by big sky views. Each suite has a secluded private viewing deck with a plunge pool, and boasts air-conditioning, a fireplace, oval baths, and double showers. The main lodge has excellent dining, lounge areas, and an expansive viewing deck, as well as twice-daily expeditions with 4x4 safari vehicles.
Best time to go to Amakhala Game Reserve
January to May are the best months to visit this part of the country. Thanks to mild temperatures, and the oceanic climate, it won’t feel too hot or too cold. Wind and rain is also generally at a minimum, making it the perfect season for daily game drives. The area is rather humid, making the overall temperature edge on the tropical side. August until December is also just as pleasant as things become warmer after winter.
King / Twin Tent
Nestled in the bush, each of the Double Luxury Tents overlooks a watering point. These tents consist of thatched roofs, tented walls, and wooden floors, and boast creature comforts like a fireplace, large oval bath, and romantic double shower.
Family Luxury Tent
Each of the Family Luxury Tents overlook a watering hole, and boast king-sized beds with a bath in the main room, and twin beds in the second en-suite room. These tents consist of thatched roofs, tented walls, and wooden floors, and boast creature comforts like a fireplace, large oval bath, and romantic double shower.
