About Woodbury Tented Camp
Woodbury Tented Camp is set in the heart of the Amakhala Game Reserve. The tranquil surroundings of the open bushveld allow you to escape from your normal day-to-day activities and enable you to take a deep breath and submerge yourself in a quiet getaway. Steeped in history Woodbury offers a view over a valley that is home to the first dinosaur fossil discovered in South Africa
Camp consists of seven large comfortable en-suite tents all on raised bases, each with their own private patios. Provide the seclusion, tranquillity and an intimacy with the bush like no other. Each tent has king size or twin beds at your request with hot running water and electricity, along with all of your amenities required to make your stay comfortable. The camp houses magnificent communal areas included a pool area for your relief against the heat of summer.
All meals are enjoyed from the comfortable communal areas that are set above spectacular views. The camp includes a full board of traditional meals.
Amakhala Game Reserve is steeped in a rich conservation ethic that has been handed down over the generations. The reserve has a unique conservation initiative that allows animals to be re-introduced to the area where they once roamed freely and thus conserving our natural heritage. Before the Game Reserve was formed the land was used to farm sheep and cattle. The challenge has been to re-introduce the original flora and fauna species to the area.
Game and Wildlife Activities
During your stay you will be able to partake in two game drives held daily on our Big 5 game reserve. The game drives are conducted by our experienced rangers and will leave you in awe of the diverse vegetation and spectacular scenery that abounds on the reserve. The reserve also offers a tranquil river cruise on the Bushman’s River that is known for its spectacular birdlife sightings
The Amakhala Conservation Centre
The Amakhala Conservation Centre is largely funded through bed levies from the commercial lodges and donations. The centre is driven on three main objectives. Firstly, to promote environmental awareness and impart knowledge of the environment, economic and cultural importance of wildlife, wild areas and the functioning of natural ecosystems. Secondly, the centre aims to identify and support research projects that provide ecological and social information relevant to the management of the reserve and to wildlife conservation in general. Finally, the centre aims to encourage and advise on various conservation projects which will ensure the conservation of biodiversity and functioning of ecological systems.
Following the successful re-introduction of different species onto the Amakhala the conservation centre continues to investigate the reintroduction of other species such as the Cape Vulture.
