Accommodation

The Country House

This historical colonial manor house built in 1908 offers true country living in every sense. Both spacious and comfortable, with four en-suite bedrooms which include two luxury suites, the Country House is set amid beautiful indigenous gardens and is an ideal base for game viewing and relaxation. The Country House on Leeuwenbosch caters for the whole family. We offer two family suites, baby sitting services and a children's programme.

Shearer's Lodge
In 1930 the building which is today Shearers' Lodge was erected as a dedicated sheep shearing shed. Sheep farming continued until 1996 when the farm was converted to a game reserve. The old shed, in which close on a million merino sheep were shorn, has been beautifully converted into four luxury en-suite rooms, three twins and one really special honeymoon suite and surrounded by indigenous gardens.

Morning and evening game drives by experienced rangers through Amakhala Game Reserve will leave you in awe of the diverse vegetation and spectacular scenery which abounds here. For a change of pace, enjoy bird watching and game spotting walks along the lazy Bushman's River, a cheese and wine boat cruise or a sundowners canoe safari.

More Information about Amakhala Game Reserve

The Amakhala Game Reserve is renowned for its spectacular topography, having 5 of South Africa's 7 biomes. 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.

At the exclusive Annual Adventure Province (Eastern Cape) Tourism & Conservation Awards on 24th March 2011, Amakhala Game Reserve was the winner of the "Best Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape" category.

The Amakhala Game Reserve is also the only Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape to have Fair Trade Certified Lodges, a testament to the emphasis placed by the Amakhala Lodge owners on their social responsibility and support for the local communities.
The FTTSA certification label is an independent endorsement of fair and responsible tourism practice in South Africa. It is based on adherence to specific criteria such as fair wages and working conditions, fair distribution of benefits, ethical business practice, and respect for human rights, culture and the environment.
