Amakhala Game Reserve Highlights

The Amakhala Game Reserve was formed in 1999 as a joint conservation venture. The reserve offers a variety of lodges that are owner managed and offer luxurious accommodation.

Amakhala Game Reserve offers a unique safari experience in an area that allows animals to be re-introduced to the area where they once roamed freely. The land was used to ranch sheep and cattle up to the turn of the century. The challenge has been to re-establish the original flora and fauna species to the area and to return the land to nature.
