The Property- Award winning Lodge in the Eastern Cape
Amakhala Game Reserve is located in the malaria-free Eastern Cape of South Africa. The 8 500 hectare Game Reserve hosts the Big 5.
Woodbury Lodge, set above the Bushman’s River valley, offers a secluded base from which to experience exciting Big Five game viewing in the heart of the Eastern Cape bushveld. Nestled discreetly against a cliff in lush riverine bush, the Lodge offers spectacular views of the Bushman’s River valley. Opened by the Gush family in 1999, Woodbury Lodge is an intimate, family-run lodge. Many of our staff at Woodbury Lodge have grown up in the area and take pride in ensuring that your African safari experience is a memorable one.
- Guests are accommodated in seven comfortable stone–and–thatch sleeping lodges, surrounded by indigenous trees alive with birdsong. Each room has air conditioning, en–suite bathrooms with heated floors and a private deck with magnificent views over the plains.
- Within the portfolio are two family lodges which sleep up to four guests, allowing families to enjoy the African bush together. The seclusion of each suite, along with the design of the bathrooms and individual outdoor relaxation areas, enable our visitors to enjoy the unique setting and breath-taking views at their leisure.
