Amakhala Game Reserve

Family-friendly Big Five spotting

The Amakhala Private Game Reserve is home to 11 luxury properties, all located in different areas of the Eastern Cape safari park.

Being malaria-free, this is a great place to stay if you are going on safari as a family. Partake in morning and afternoon game drives to try and spot the Big Five. Or, for a safari experience with a difference, opt to go on the boat cruise along the Bushmans River and out to the coast, via Kenton-on-Sea.

Wonderful

Paris, France

Having been on a number of Safaris on the Eastern Cape, this was a gem. We took our 20something son and his girlfriend who just loved it. Our guide was wonderful and he was affectionate known as The Boss! He smiled a lot and had an infectious laugh but more importantly we learnt so much from him and felt safe. Our accommodation was excellent. Food too. All in all a great place and could not fault.

Amazing Game Experience

Durban, South Africa

The game drives were outstanding and did not disappoint; cusine fantastic and the luxury rooms most comfortable. Thank you Amakhala for a super bush break! Game rangers Brett and Johan stood out as great guides. We saw plenty of game.
