Nestled on the banks of the winding Mkhuze River, concealed amongst the indigenous vegetation, is a modest collection of chalets which form the Amakhosi Safari Lodge. On closer inspection you will discover that these chalets are decidedly luxurious, as is the communal lodge area. In short, what you are witnessing is a spectacle which epitomises the best of both worlds – Big 5 game viewing in the African bush, and luxury accommodation boasting all the mod-cons a sophisticated traveller like yourself may need.
The lodge consists of various buildings all built in an unassuming architectural style which employs a rustic colour scheme of greens, browns, greys and beige, which blend it well with the surrounding environment.
The communal areas include a thatch-roof restaurant and dining room where guests will be impressed by the dishes presented to them. The wide decks looking out over the river and the wilderness make the perfect quiet spot to take in the views, read a book or take a dip in the plunge pool, in a swimming experience unlike any you’ve had before.
The chalets are all tastefully decorated and sleep on average two people. Each looks out across the river and has an en suite bathroom. The chalets are all gorgeous, but if you really want to go above and beyond, the honeymoon suite will blow your mind, with its private plunge pool and incredible attention to detail.
As Amakhosi Safari Lodge is situated on a Big 5 game reserve, game drives are a necessary item on the itinerary. Passionate game rangers take groups out in the early morning and late afternoon to spot all sorts of game, big and small, and educate visitors on the animals and vegetation of the area. For something particularly unique, you can also take a walking safari. In addition to game drives, there is also a gym, a beauty spa and a bar, and indulging in each one respectively will ensure you have the stay of a lifetime at Amakhosi.
