What an amazing place, I can not fault anything. 1st class service from the moment we arrived. Staff super nice, friendly and accommodating. Room right in front of waterhole and had warthogs, giraffe and water buffalo drinking there. Game drives were fantastic and over the 3 days we were here we got to see everything we hoped. Lion, cheetahs, buffalo, giraffe, elephants, so many antelope breeds. It was such an amazing experience. Two 3 hour game drives a day at 7am and 3pm. Got quite cold but hot water bottles and blanket ponchos were given out. Food was plentiful and delicious with free house drinks. Also a fridge in room stocked up each morning with cold drink, wine, beer, gin. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, drinking water all in room. Loads of hot water for the huge bath tub with a view of the waterhole. Definitely recommend a stay here!!
Wow where do I start
An absolutely fab experience from start to finish. Was met by the lovely Jean-Luke and Mandy and went to check into our beautiful lodge. Omggg right near the waterhole with our own plunge pool. The food was 5 star here with a menu choice for each meal, wine, beer or soft drinks with lunch and dinner and a mini bar in each lodge. We were so surprised one night as the staff made my sister a birthday cake and came out singing to her and we hadnt said it had been her birthday recently. The lodge was so comfortable with under floor heating and a fab outdoor shower, bath and lounge area. We took 6 game drives with the very pleasant, knowledgeable ranger Martin and we saw so many animals each time. The leopards and cheetahs were elusive but we saw 7 rhinos all together at one time including a baby, lions walked right near our jeep, I could go on forever it was sooo good. We had blankets and a hot water bottle on the morning drives which were very welcome until we got warmed up by the sun. Wifi worked great here and after our sundowner safari the firepits were lit so we could sit out with blankets and talk about our funfilled days. Jean-Luke is so much fun to be around he is a great guy and will go far, we miss him already. We cannot thank the staff enough for a fantastic safari experience which we hope to repeat sometime. If you are planning a safari you need AMAKHALA SAFARI LODGE you will not be disappointed.
Excellent Lodge - Guest Service at its best
Fantastic lodge and excellent guest service. Very friendly and supportive staff including the Rangers. Food was excellent, rooms are very well maintained (showers could be better though) and clean. Staff and lodge take care of very minor details and are conscious of guest comfort. The General Manager keeps a good eye on the details. Good job. On the 4 Safaris we took it looked like some time was spent by the rangers in just moving around gor completing 3 hours schedule without actually attempting to show anything. This could be slightly better. Special mention of our Butler Unapi. Extremely caring and pleasant person. Took good care.
Safaris to see the big five
Absolutely delightful lodge with a beautiful honeymoon suite with our own hot tub and huge bathroom and bath. Staff were very very nice and helpful. Food was delicious and the safaris second to none thanks to our ranger and tracker Philip and Jeremy. Managed to see the big five minus the leopard but still incredible safaris
Fabulous lodge and safari
I had a fabulous three night stay here despite being the only guest in the hotel. The staff were very friendly especially Unathi the Butler, who was also good at saving the day when a big spider decided to come into my room uninvited! The safari drives with Nonee were fabulous. He tried his hardest to find all the animals that I wanted to see & pretty much succeeded. I saw so many animals and many at the water hole at the lodge too. The vegan food was delicious. It was an amazing break and I highly recommend this lodge.
