TENTED CAMP ACCOMMODATION
Woodbury Tented Camp situated in the malaria free Amakhala Game Reserve is one of the hidden jewels of the Eastern Cape. Tucked into an embracing hillside thicket and overlooking the ancient floodplain of the Bushman’s River, the Camp offers rustic and secluded luxury, and an authentic African wildlife safari experience.
Seven large, comfortable, en-suite tents on raised bases, and with private patios provide the seclusion, tranquillity and an intimacy with the bush that you would expect on a visit to Amakhala Game Reserve. Each tent has twin or double beds - at your request.
Camp life is centred around the stone, thatch and canvas main dining and lounge area, with it’s expansive deck overlooking the Woodbury plain and waterhole. A wide variety of game species such as zebra, giraffe, buffalo, eland, rhino and elephant fill the passing parade while fish eagles soar overhead, their hauntingly evocative cry echoing across the valley.
Soak up the sun while lazing on a recliner next to the pool; sip a cocktail or enjoy tea and delicious, freshly baked cakes, before venturing out into the Reserve on your next expedition.
SAFARI TRIPS AND RIVER CRUISE
A range of game viewing under guidance of professional game wardens and other activities such as the river cruise and bush walks are on offer, or you could just recline around the communal swimming pool and enjoy some sun while the birds keep you company. Unfortunately no under 6 years are permitted on game drives. Read more about the Game drives and wildlife here...
We also have accommodation at our 4 star Woodbury Lodge. Please read more about the Woodbury Lodge here.
“A Perfect Safari Experience” From the gracious welcome to the last thrilling game drive, everything about Woodbury was beyond our greatest expectations--and this was not our first safari. All the rangers were highly qualified and friendly, but we felt blessed to be accompanied by James whose knowledge was matched by his wit, wisdom and tenacity, a rare person whose passion for his work is contagious. Woodbury Camp is comfortable, the food is good and abundant, the service is flawless. There is a nice little pool for relaxation between game drives. In the three days we toured Amakhala, every drive was vastly different. The animals are amazing--as is the nature in which they live.Lynn R., Italy
