African Cape Trophy Safaris
It is our pleasure to share with you the Africa we know and love.
Amakhala is named after the Xhosa word meaning Aloe which is one of the prolific indigenous plants found in the Eastern Cape Province. Steeped in history and beauty, this 15,000 acre game reserve creates an ideal environment for an unforgettable safari and an intimate experience of the varied landscape, including breathtaking views of the Bushman's River. This Game Reserve is a unique conservation initiative that allows animals to be re-introduced to the area where they once roamed freely and so making a contribution to the conservation of their natural heritage.
Amakhala Game Reserve offers a range of morning and evening safaris and other activities to enable our guests to experience the fascinating flora, fauna and bird life of the Eastern Cape. Go on game drives in an open Land Rover in search of wildlife – recently introduced lions, rhino, elephant, cheetah, buffalo, giraffe, black wildebeest, zebra, tortoise and over 16 antelope species - or take a night drive with cheese and wine sundowners before searching for elusive nocturnal animals such as lynx, porcupine and springhare.
Or you can relax on a slow river cruise down the Bushman’s River. The riverine bushveld offers excellent bird watching with a good chance of seeing the majestic African Fish Eagle and all three species of Kingfisher. Amongst the game drinking at the river’s edge, the rare Cape Clawless Otter might also be sighted. A guided walk with one of our qualified rangers will both fascinate and enthrall you with an in-depth view into the hidden treasures of the African veld. Canoeing is also available on the Bushman River.
