Big 5 along the Bushman's River

Overlooking the babbling Bushman’s River in the Eastern Cape, Amakhala Woodbury Tented Camp offers guests a magical safari experience – without the stress of malaria. Plus: you stand the chance to see the majestic Big 5, as well as other species of African wildlife and birdlife.

The Bushman’s River slithers through the Amakhala Game Reserve, drawing zebra, giraffe, buffalo, eland, rhino and elephant to its nourishing banks. Regal fish eagles soar overhead. All these creatures (and more) can be spotted from the lodge’s main deck – but if you want to get a closer look, day and night game drives or guided walks can be arranged. Canoeing trips, river cruises, picnic lunches and bird-watching excursions are also possible.

After a day of exploring, kick back at one of Woodbury’s eight en-suite tents. Each tent sits on a raised deck with its own private patio, and inside you’ll find either twin or double beds – depending on your preference. Indulge in baked goods and gourmet dining prepared on-site, served al fresco on the main deck.
