Everything was perfect! We felt like home from the very first moment. The staff is very friendly and caring. The food was excellent. The bar/living room had a very good ambiance. Jan, our safari guide, was always doing his best so that we could see all animals. Rooms were tastefully decorated. It was an excellent value for money, especially taking...

This was our first safari and it was brilliant. Beautifully furnished "tents" and stylish lodge but still retaining a natural feel to it all. Excellent food and service. We saw lots of animals on the game drives thanks to the expertise of our ranger Janco. All in all a great experience which I would highly recommend!

Our lodge was very spacious and well appointed. Our ranger (Jon) was very knowledgeable and we were able to see all the animals over the two days of our stay. We were a little disappointed with the food as there was a limited menu choice for dinner and very basic lunch menu with no salad or fruit. Not what we...

We loved the game lodge and our room. There was. a super ambience especially at night when candles and fires were lit. The food was great and staff very friendly and helpful. We had an excellent ranger in Jono. Perhaps there could have been the option of a brighter central light in our rooms.

We had a wonderful time at the Game Lodge with friendly, cheerful and helpful staff making us feel very welcome. The amenities and the en-suite bedroom in the cottage were spacious and well presented with an outside patio and a wonderful view of the animals that chose to come to the nearby water hole. The ranger provided us with lots...

Fantastic stay at the Hlosi - our ranger Lucky was exceptional we saw most of the animals and he had a knack of being in the right place at the right time to get a great view - highlight being the pride of lions.

This place is about the animals so best start there. The tours are twice a day (6am & 4pm) & last 3 hours each. You're driven in a jeep which seats 10 with open sides for good views. We saw elephants, rhinos, giraffe, zebra, lions, Cheetah, monkeys, warthogs, Springbok, Kudu & loads more. N.B this is not about petting these...

Just returned back from a 3 night stay at the Hlosi game lodge and loved it! We looked at many other lodges in the area and also looked at going further up north towards Kruger park for a game reserve but chose to stay south and don't regret it. The Amakhala organization focuses on conservation as their number one effort...
