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
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.
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.
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.
Get up close with antelope and giraffe while on horseback on a 2 – 3 hour excursion for a unique experience. Rest assured that you are safe – this takes place in areas away from the Big 5 and predators!
Swimming and plunge pools
The best way to end the day is to swim in a pool, with spectacular views of the unspoiled landscape surrounding you. Swimming pools at the lodges are well situated for both bird watching and game viewing, whilst cooling off with a refreshing drink in hand.
