The six suites at Hlosi offer a real African experience: canvas walls and thatched roofs evoke the safaris of a bygone era, with old trunks buttressing vast beds under romantic mosquito nets. Deep baths are situated next to windows with uninterrupted (and private!) views over the reserve, whilst for those wanting to get even closer to nature, your private deck boasts an outdoor shower. The lounge area, with its deep leather seats, African art and open fire invites you to settle in and enjoy this lovely lodge as if it were your own home.
Amakhala Private Game Reserve is around 7,500 hectares and until the turn of the millennium was farmland owned by a number of families, some of whom were 5th generation settler farmers. They joined their land together and made a game reserve, which now offers excellent game viewing (with four of the Big Five being routinely sighted: elephant, rhino, lion, and buffalo. Leopards live up to their elusive reputation!) as well as wonderful scenery with the Bushman’s River cutting a swathe through the reserve.
