It is a particularly diverse and picturesque reserve, with the Bushman's River meandering through it. Amakhala boasts an abundant variety of wildlife including the Big 5,lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. Leopard are however rarely seen due to their secretive nature, being nocturnal and probably a legacy of their persecution be the farmers in the past. With over 250 species of birdlife and the large diversity of animal species one experiences on game drives, night drives, walking safaris and boat cruises, the Amakhala Game Reserve offers guests an exceptional game viewing experience.
