Accommodation

Exclusive, private and located a leopard’s leap away from the main lodge, Amakhosi Private House is a hidden gem accommodating four deserving guests and offering a share of paradise.

There are two bedrooms. One bedroom is furnished with a King-size bed and the other is furnished with twin beds. The en-suite bathrooms are fitted with a bath big enough for two, a shower, toilet and basin.

The spacious lounge entices with large leather sofas and a centre fireplace. The bedrooms and living area all open onto a large wooden viewing deck, giving sweeping views of the valleys and wildlife below. The splash pool provides cool relief on warm days.

There is a private kitchen, barbeque area and private game ranger.

Dining

Where flavours offer a combination of an African fusion style with European flair. Brunch is a buffet style comprising a hot and cold smorgasbord, with only the freshest of ingredients. High tea is traditionally served on the veranda with platter after platter boasting vegetable wraps, chicken kebabs, mini pancakes with salmon and caviar, pâtés, quiches, chocolate and mini cheesecakes.

Dinner is an elegant candle-lit, multi-course menu accompanied by free-flowing South African wines, alternatively (weather permitting), dinner may also be enjoyed in the open-air boma under the stars.

Game Activities

• Game Drive Safaris
• Walking Safaris
• Cultural Safaris
• Seasonal Frogging Safaris (Nov – Feb)
• Eco Walk for Junior Rangers

This is Big 5 territory and what you don’t view from your deck, expert guides invariably will deliver on dawn and dusk game drives. Conversation around the fire each night is of close encounters with lionesses and playful cubs, sandbathing elephants and streaking cheetah. But equally engrossing are the adventurous guide’s encounters with smaller creatures, from delicate bark spiders to glossy dung beetles; and anecdotes about the trees and medicinal plants of the reserve.

Depending on the season, you can choose from fishing, walking, cultural and frogging safaris. Most evenings, centre on the 5* plated bush dinners produced in the Amakhosi kitchen. Guests linger contentedly on the expansive lodge deck and reconnect themselves with nature through the sounds of the bush, then retire to the friendliness of the bar, or doze around a fire pit, where traditional Zulus and later, fireflies dance.
