Activities at Amakhosi Safari Lodge:
A safari is a journey of discovery in which you are one with your surroundings. Being part of life in the bush is the essence of a safari and being able to do it is a privilege one should never take for granted.
Whether it is "Big 5", birding or seasonal frogging and cultural safaris, our guides are able to tailor-make this experience to suit your personal needs.
Imagine close encounters with newborn cheetah cubs, or being the prime witness to a daring lion fight. Amakhosi guides are well qualified and extremely committed to the environment, and look forward to taking you on a journey of discovery where you are at one with your surroundings.
A walking safari brings you closer to the heartbeat of the bush, submitting yourself to the mercy of nature. Knowledgeable guides know exactly where to take their guests for exciting, yet safe encounters with pristine fauna and flora.
Game walks of a different kind. From November to March each year, when the rains come, Amakhosi invites guests to discover the fascinating world of amphibians. Night safaris with qualified guides take you deep into the bush to marvel the spectrum of colours and the loud calling of mating frogs.
A very powerful eagle, the Stephanoaetus coronatus, hunts mainly monkeys and small forest antelope. It kills by severing the vertebrae of its prey or will drive its very long dewclaw through the back of the monkey`s skull. This Crowned Eagle prefers forest areas, but in the Amazulu Private Game Reserve it is also found in riverine forest. The reserve has three breeding pairs.
There is no substitute for getting married in the bush. From the moment the bride and groom arrive, until long after the ceremony held in one of the most beautiful areas of the reserve, they are transported into a dream world fit for a king and his queen. At AmaKhosi, competent staff take care of everything, all you have to do is arrive and say "I do".
