Rest your feet while going deeper and farther than you ever thought possible for up-close game encounters. The game drives leave just before sunrise, ensuring that you get to see the entire bush wake up. The feeling of excitement and being at one with nature is indescribable.

Night Game Drives

Night Game Drives

As the sun sets over the horizon, the African bush is awash with colours and sounds. The evening dawns and the nocturnal animals come out from their sleeping spots. Night time is when new adventures are to be had while on safari.

Birding

Birding

Amakhala Game Reserve offers many different bird species for the avid birdwatcher.  In fact, with over 250 species recorded, Amakhala is a good year-round birding destination – the best though is from November to April, to view the migratory birds from north Africa and Europe.

Off-Road Game Viewing

Off-Road Game Viewing

In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby!  At private reserves the rangers can take you off-road to get that much closer to that iconic sighting.

River Cruises

River Cruises

Take a river cruise on the beautiful Bushmans River while on Amakhala.  Other than the total relaxation it offers, it is great for animal spotting, including the rare Cape clawless otter, other animals such as the endangered black wildebeest and Burchell’s zebras, and of course the stunning array of birdlife.
