Amakhosi Safari Lodge

AmaKhosi translated from Zulu means “The Place of the Kings” and is situated on the banks of Zululand's Mkuze River in the 10 000 hectare AmaZulu private game reserve. A 5 ½ hour drive from Johannesburg and 4 hours from Durban, it is ideally located in a blend of savannah, wetlands and mountains. AmaKhosi is home to quality Big Five game viewing, 15 species of antelope and over 400 bird species.

The Amakhosi Safari Lodge

At the Heart of AmaKhosi Lodge is the most luxurious blend of river frontage. Riverbanks are home to the main lodge and six magnificent regal River Suites offering special views of the flowing Mkuze River. Each boasts separate air-conditioned bedroom and lounge with fully stocked mini bar and tea/coffee facilities as well as en-suite bathroom with a unique bath made for two. This, dressed with an array of candles and bath salts allows decadence to take on a whole new meaning bringing tranquility and serenity to the lodge, fit for a king.

If you are planning a honeymoon, a romantic get away or just want to spoil yourself our Umntwana river suites are a great compliment to our lodge.

River Lodge

Six luxurious river suites capture nature through ceiling-high windows and private viewing decks across the river. Built in a shape of a Zulu shield and decorated in a typical Zulu style with a colourful modern touch, all suites are easily accessible from the main lodge.
Each suite accommodates two adults with an air conditioned lounge, bedroom, bathroom with a bath for two, separate shower and toilet, safe, bath robes, fully stocked mini-bar and a tea and coffee tray.

Honeymoon Suite

Umntwana, means "a child of Royalty" in Zulu. Slip into a nirvana in this 'private kingdom' with high thatched ceilings and glass walls. An open-plan design with spacious deck, a private bubble pool and hammock overlooking the river, truly spell 'royal dwellings', whilst an air-conditioned bedroom and lounge, fully stocked mini-bar, tea/coffee making facilities and en-suite bathroom made for two, transports lovers into a fantasy world of their own where nothing else matters.

IsiGodlo Private House

The "IsiGodlo" meaning a Chief residence, is our private house which overlooks the meandering Mkuze River and is perfectly positioned to capture every African sunset which adorns the rolling hills in this pristine Zululand wilderness. Exclusive, private and located a leopard's leap away from the main lodge, this hidden gem accommodating four deserving guests offers a share of paradise. The spacious lounge entices with large leather sofa's, a centered fireplace and bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms all opening up onto a large wooden viewing deck, giving sweeping views of the valleys and wildlife below. The splash pool provides cool relief on warm days.

Facilities at Amakhosi Safari Lodge

Executive meetings blend in well with the philosophies and tranquil surroundings of AmaKhosi. Accommodating a maximum of 30 pax in a private function room, a fully inclusive package includes meals and two safaris daily, sundowner cocktails in the bush, as well as all local alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages.

Recently completed is the added feature of a traditional Zulu Kraal, proudly built by AmaKhosi staff along with the help from the local Zulu community. Guests at the lodge are now able to enjoy a cosy evening away from the main lodge around an African bonfire, followed by traditional South African braai under the stars.

AmaKhosi Lodge offers a high level of service and luxury, which accompanies the dramatic surroundings bearing testimony to its name. A special place where royal treatment is a part of each day and no two days are the same, making every visit more special than the last!
