Just returned from three amazingly wonderfull days at Amakhosi lodge. As we drove into the lodge our safari started, we saw elephant, giraff, zebra, worthog and many antilopes on our way in.
We were lucky to have Pierre as our safari guide and Mangla as our tracker. Pierre has an impressive knowledge of animals, birds, trees and tracks. He is outgoing and always looking to give us the best experience every gamedrive. We would recommend that others ask for Pierre when they want a family friendly guide who is willing to share his vast knowledge about the bush and all the wonderfull animals.
We did see lots and lots of animals as other reviewers have noted, and all the animals seemed healty, calm and Happy. Specially had amazing encounters with a lion family, elephant family and cheetas!!!
When not on gamedrives we really enjoyed the lodge, the spa, the terrace with beautiful views of the river. We were fortunate and stayed at the private house and really enjoyed the privacy and the beauty of the nature around.
Everyone who works at Amakhosi are serviceminded and smiling, they made us feel very welcome. One big Thanks to the chef who made the most delicious glutenfree and dairyfree food for us, I am Sorry I did not talk to the chef to show our gratitude, but every little detail was perfect. My daughter even had glutenfree cupcakes for morning safari and she was incredibly pleased with that! Thank you all so much for an amazing experience!
