Discover Amakhala Bukela Game Lodge

Bukela Game Lodge is 5-star safari lodge situated in the Amakhala Game Reserve, an 18 000-acre private game park located in the malaria free Eastern Cape. The reserve is a Big 5 Reserve and hosts other animals such as cheetah, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, and plenty of antelope species.

The lodge is secluded on the reserve and tucked away into indigenous trees and bushes at the top of a hidden valley. There are 4 thatched suites and 10 luxury safari tents, each individually styled and connected by a wooden walkway. Each air-conditioned room has an indoor and outdoor shower as well as a private wooden deck. At the main lodge you will find a reception, dining and sitting area with a central fireplace, a media and library area with Internet, games and books and a large wooden pool deck overlooking a small dam frequented by buffalo.

Special offer: Book for 3 nights and only pay for 2 nights. This offer is only valid from 01 May - 31 August 2024. Terms and conditions apply.
