An African hideaway in a location which blends savannah, wetlands and mountain, and which offers a true bush experience.
On the banks of the Mkuze River, the lodge is visited by a multitude of antelope and birds, while guests can see the Big 5 on game drives and guided walks.
Accommodation is in 6 luxurious river suites while the lodge also has a private two-bedroom villa and a sumptuous honeymoon suite. In addition to enjoying visits to a local Zulu village, guests can also participate in unique frog safaris at certain times of the year.
This is for those seeking more than just ‘safari’. Situated as it is on the banks of the Mkuze River, in addition to game drives, visits to Zulu villages and walking safaris are possible, but if you time your stay right you can also join one of the unique frog safaris.
There is one dining room, where you can join other guests and meet your fellow safari-goers. Sit amongst the artistic décor while you tuck into the truly African cuisine made from the freshest ingredients. In-room dining is also available.
Amakhosi Safari Lodge offers several types of accommodation depending on your reason for travelling or how many there are in your group. There are six luxurious River Suites, which are set off from the main lodge. Imagine high ceilings, en-suite bathrooms and your own private balcony which over looks the river. If you are on your honeymoon, the Umntwana Suite is the perfect spot to start off your marital life with an open-plan room and huge bath tub you could almost swim in. If there is a large group of you and want to be a little more secluded the IsiGodlo Private House caters for just that, and hosts an impressive and uninterrupted view across meandering Mkuze River. It comes with a centred fireplace and bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms all opening up onto a large wooden viewing deck.
Children of all ages are welcome and there are baby sitting facilities are available upon request.
