Experience authentic, wild Africa with our half-day safari that includes a boat cruise on the malaria-free Amakhala Game Reserve, situated less than an hour's drive from Port Elizabeth. Your experienced and knowledgeable ranger will wow you with unforgettable wildlife sightings and breathtaking scenery, all experienced from the back of an open safari vehicle.
Your 1 hour boat cruise takes place on the beautiful Bushman's River, the lifeblood of the reserve that teems with rich birdlife. You will also have the chance of spotting hippos in the water and Big 5 on the riverbanks.
The Amakhala Game Reserve has been pioneering conservation in the Eastern Cape for over 20 years. This 8,500h reserve is home to lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, cheetah, leopard, giraffe, antelope, warthog, a huge variety of bird species and much, much more.

We’ve had a wonderful stay at the Hlosi lodge! Great game drives with Events as ranger! We’ve seen almost all the animals! The hospitality in the lodge was so friendly and welcoming, super! Food delicious as well!! Will recommend this place for sure! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A really nice place with friendly people. We had a great 3 hour day Safari with two experienced guides who could tell us a lot about the animals and plants. The lunch was also very delicious.
2 days are to short! Had a wonderful time, everybody who works there is very kind. And the game drives are very good! We'll come back!
Atmosphere is amazing! The staff especially Spha and their service is brilliant! Had cool talks and phenomenal food there!
