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.


Classic Safari Tent

The 4 Classic Safari Tents are discreetly positioned far apart to allow maximum privacy. Enjoy panoramic views from the wrap-around wooden decks. Canvas blinds can be rolled up to let nature in and enjoy the surroundings from the deep soak bath.

Family Safari Tent

The 2 bedroom Family Safari Tent is linked to the main lodge by raised walkways and is the perfect option for families. Together with the main bedroom, the second room comes with 2 twin beds, comfortably accommodating a family of 4.
