Frontier-country charm on Amakhala Game Reserve


Once a family-run farm involved in wool farming around the 1920s, the Fowld’s family homestead was later converted into the grand Leeuwenbosch Country House when the surrounding farmland became Amakhala Game Reserve in 1991. Guests can spend their days in search of the Big 5 and their evenings languishing in the old-world grandeur found in the manor house.  
 
With plenty to see and do in the area, guests will have a hard time squeezing it all in! Enjoy game drives on the reserve and sunset cruises down Bushman’s River, or venture further afield to the 1820 Settler town of Grahamstown—the very heart of ‘Frontier Country’. Seaside bliss can be found in nearby Kenton-on-Sea and Port Alfred, while closer to home South Africa’s first Stegosaurus skeleton was found a mere kilometre from the reserve.
 
Once the old sheep-shearing shed, Shearers Lodge Suites boast 4 en-suite bedrooms with idyllic views of the garden and a Family Suite. The 1908 manor house has 5 Country House Suites furnished with a combination of delightful antiques and modern-day luxuries.
