My husband and I stayed in November and had the most amazing time at this beautiful lodge. The room was well appointed and private. We stayed in room 2 which had a direct view of the watering hole and we had several visitors including Norman the elephant and water buffalo at night. I recommend requesting this room or rooms 1 - 4 if you want to be near the watering hole. Food was excellent and dinner was nice as all of the guests (only 11 rooms at the lodge) dinned together along with the guides, so we got to make friends. You get two drives a day with your stay. Morning drive at 7 am for about 3 hours, followed by breakfast (you get muffins and tea/coffee before the drive to hold you over). After breakfast you get a break for a few hours where you can enjoy your plunge pool, the hotel pool, or get a massage in your room if you like. Then afternoon drive, followed by dinner. After the drives, we were always greeted with drinks like a hot chocolate in the morning or a cocktail in the evening. Afternoon drives also stop at a scenic location for drinks and snacks. Our guide, nicknamed Fish, was great at finding animals and we got to see almost all of the animals we wanted. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this lodge. The lodge is located about an hour's drive from Port Elizabeth.

Lovely location in the heart of the reserve.
We really enjoyed our first safari on the Amakhala Game Reserve. The Safari Lodge was extremely well located with good facilities. It was well laid out and comfortable. It was the staff, however, who made the stay so enjoyable. Excellent service and very friendly.
