Zululand - Amakhosi Safari Lodge 3 nights

Amakhosi Safari Lodge

Spend 3 nights at Amakhosi Safari Lodge in the Amakhosi Private Game Reserve.
A royal hideaway offering exceptional service and luxury, amidst the African landscapes and breathtaking big five wildlife of the Amakhosi private game reserve. Here, time belongs to the rhythm of a timeless African beat and guests are given their own private kingdom. Amakhosi is located in a blend of savannah, wetlands and mountains. The Safari Lodge is situated on the banks of Zululand's Mkuze River in Amakhosi private game reserve. Artistic décor, African fusion cuisine and prompt attentive service, makes AmaKhosi a bush lodge difficult to match elsewhere in Southern Africa.
Six luxurious river suites capture nature through ceiling-high windows and private viewing decks across the river. Each suite accommodates two adults with an air conditioned lounge, bedroom, bathroom with a bath for two, separate shower and toilet, safe, bath robes, fully stocked mini-bar and a tea and coffee tray. Built in a shape of a Zulu shield and decorated in a typical Zulu style with a colourful modern touch, all suites are easily accessible from the main lodge.
Day 1
Siyanemukela! Depart from Johannesburg International Airport on a flight to Richards Bay. You will be met and transferred by road to the Amakhosi Private Game Reserve. You will spend 3 nights at Amakhosi Safari Lodge.  Your hosts will greet you and show you to your luxurious accommodation. There should still be time for an afternoon game drive looking out for the Big 5 (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino & leopard).
Days 2 & 3
Spend 3 nights at Amakhosi with all your meals, game drives, nature walks and park fees included.
Day 4
There should be time for a morning activity before transferring to Richards Bay for the return flight to Johannesburg.

The sight of a racing cheetah, smell of wild jasmine and the cry of a Whalberg's eagle, together compliment this in the natural environment of river wetlands, valley bushland, umbrella thorn trees and thick bush grassland blanketing the mountains.

From the moment you arrive at Amakhosi, you are scooped up in arms of royalty and sophistication with warm smiles and hot hand towels. The spirit of your journey lives here. Come and share it with us.

A safari is a journey of discovery in which you are one with your surroundings. Being part of life in the bush is the essence of a safari and being able to do it is a privilege one should never take for granted. Whether it is "Big 5", birding or seasonal frogging and cultural safaris, our guides are able to tailor-make this experience to suit your personal needs.

Imagine close encounters with newborn cheetah cubs, or being the prime witness to a daring lion fight. Amakhosi guides are well qualified and extremely committed to the environment, and look forward to taking you on a journey of discovery where you are at one with your surroundings.

A walking safari brings you closer to the heartbeat of the bush, submitting yourself to the mercy of nature. Knowledgeable guides know exactly where to take their guests for exciting, yet safe encounters with pristine fauna and flora.
