Accommodation at Amakhala Hlosi Game Lodge

The 14-unit Amakhala Hlosi Game Lodge comprises four double suites, four family tents, four luxury tents, and two two-roomed family suites. Set upon a gentle hillside overlooking a river plain, with sweeping views from private decks, they couldn’t be better positioned to showcase the scenic splendour of South Africa, and provide a comfortable HQ from which to embark on your safari adventures. Onsite you’ll also find a main lodge with smart dining and lounge venues, swimming pool, waterhole, and a vibrant bar for those evening sundowners.

Things to do at Amakhala Hlosi Game Lodge

In winter time, cosy up and exchange safari stories by the two-sided fireplace in the main lodge’s impressive ‘rondavel’ (round room). In the summer months, step out onto the shaded verandah where the inviting swimming pool below tempts those keen to cool off in the sun. Adjacent to the main lodge is a separate venue called a ‘boma’ which hosts bush braais (evening meal and game drive with barbecue) and firelight festivities. Aside from safaris on the game reserve at the lodge and enjoying the atmosphere and facilities onsite, the local area also reveals some notable places of interest. Historic settler city Grahamstown and ‘friendly city’ Port Elizabeth are nearby, and you can discover animals of the past on a paleontology excursion less than a mile away at the Krantz Formations.
