Complete with thatched roofs, rustic decor and luxurious touches, Bukela Game Lodge offers a true African escape. Based in the Amakhala Game Reserve along the Garden Route, this place allows you to discover the wildlife of the Greater Addo area. The semi-arid land provides the ideal habitat for an abundance of plants, birds and big game, and Bukela Game Lodge is the perfect setting to see nature at its best. Staying with just a handful of other guests in this secluded hotel, you’ll be able to make the most of the scenery on your private balcony or deck.
Look forward to days out among the flora and fauna of this biologically diverse reserve. See cheetah, rhino, elephant, buffalo, zebra and more on game drives organised by the hotel. You can also take to the river on a boat to see the majestic fish eagle and rare African finfoot while you enjoy sundowners. And when the sun disappears, why not head out on a stargazing experience? With barely any light pollution, the night sky reveals all kinds of constellations.
Let yourself be pampered as you sink into the relaxing on-site spa. The therapists will spoil you using Healing Earth products – a brand committed to using organic ingredients sourced from indigenous plants. You’ll be enveloped by the beautiful aromas as you unwind with a restorative facial or soothing massage. Some of the treatments use African potato balm – an ointment known for its healing benefits.
Feast on a range of sweet and savoury treats as you enjoy afternoon tea created by the chefs.
Sit out on the communal boma and chat to other guests, while you’re served hearty and indulgent dishes.
Find your own peaceful corner of the lodge and enjoy a cosy meal beneath the thatched roof, with a glass of celebrated wine to accompany every dish.
Order from an extensive drinks list, whether you’re ready for an afternoon coffee or a pre-meal aperitif.
With just 10 luxury safari tents and four suites, Bukela Game Lodge offers a tranquil stay. Designed to reflect the natural surroundings, all the rooms are finished with earthy tones and wooden accents. You’ll have your own balcony or patio, so you can spot elephants, zebras, giraffes, cheetahs and more from the comfort of your sun lounger.
