Travellers' Choice
Woodbury Tented Camp is an intimate, three star bush camp located on the spectacular Amakhala Game Reserve and run by the Gush family, who have lived on the land for five generations. Many of our staff have grown up in the area and take pride in ensuring that your African safari experience is a memorable one. Tucked into a secluded hillside thicket overlooking the ancient floodplain of the Bushman's River, Woodbury Tented Camp is one of the hidden jewels of the Eastern Cape. Ten comfortable en-suite tents on raised bases, each with its own private deck, allow guests to enjoy a rare intimacy with nature. Each tent has hot running water, the option of king-size or twin beds and electric blankets for those cosy evenings. Also in the portfolio are two family tents which connect via a balcony, allowing families to enjoy the African bush together. Twice daily game drives with one of our friendly and professional guides offer the chance for exciting Big Five game viewing.

An absolutely wonderful visit and experience! Been to many game parks and lodges and this was the best experience by far! Excellent game viewing, not staged. Exceptional rangers (Lenny very talented and wonderful human being), good food, loved the accommodation and setting. Thank you for a memorable stay!

We were 5 couples , old friends, who spent 3 lovely days at Woodbury. Food was excellent, guides very knowledgable, service perfect. Game sightings surprisingly varied. All special requests were accommodated, and a special birthday cake presented at dinner.

Grant and I spent two nights at the Woodbury Tented Camp. The camp is well laid out with a beautiful deck overlooking the plain, 2 swimming pools - one with a view and one with shaded thorn trees, a boma where a fire is lit every night, indoor area and obviously Tented accommodation with private shower and bathroom. The chef serves abundant portions of excellent home cooked food. No request is too big and the food is delicious. The tents have very comfortable beds and a deck. The walkway is beautifully lit at night which creates a wonderful ambience. Brad our ranger was superb. We were fortunate enough to be the only guests and Brad treated us to a relaxed game drive with incredible sightings! Thank you to everyone and especially the friendly staff!
