Amakhala Safari Lodge can be found in a valley of indigenous bush at the northern boundary of Amakhala Game Reserve. African tribal design-inspired owners and artists, Mike and Justine Weeks have given meticulous attention to detail to this prestigious lodge, which is reflected in the fine African beadwork and handcrafted designs. The thatched lodge, with its unique safari huts and signature stone-capped rooftops, offers luxurious comforts and is an undisturbed retreat where you can regenerate your soul and tune into the sounds of nature. The view from the safari huts and lounge area is of the waterhole where monkeys play and antelope and zebra quench their thirsts. 11 luxury air-conditioned suites are complete with private plunge pools and separate lounge areas.
