thatched suites at the Amakhala Game reserve


Romantic and secluded in a hidden valley

Five star rated Bukela Game Lodge is a romantic and secluded safari destination tucked away into indigenous trees and bushes at the top of a hidden valley at the Amakhala Game Reserve. Our tranquil Lodge and suites are the perfect setting for the intimate guest experiences for which we’re renowned.

Connected by a wooden walkway, our thatched suites offer a remarkable private wildlife-viewing experience. Savour a crisp glass of wine in your sun-soaked spa bath, opening onto trees alive with birdsong. Indulge in sumptuous high teas, private candlelit dinners or exciting fireside boma dinners under African stars. And as you fall asleep, hear the silence broken by the unmistakeable sounds of elephant and buffalo making their stately progress through the unfenced camp.It’s our privilege to create moments like these, and to share them with you.

Our lodge may also be booked exclusively as a restful and beautiful venue for small team-building, conferences and weddings.


The main lodge comprises of a reception, dining and sitting area with a central fireplace which is always welcome in winter, a media and library area with Internet, television, dvd player, games and books and a large wooden pool deck overlooking a small dam frequented by buffalo.

The four suites are each individually styled in African simplicity while never compromising on luxury, sleeps 2 guests and are privately located separate to the main lodge. Each suite is well appointed for a guests’ optimal comfort with every amenity including large, en suite bathrooms each with a spa bath overlooking the African bush, an indoor and outdoor shower for the more adventurous, a central fireplace for romantic evenings, a private wooden deck, bar fridge and hot drink amenities. Beds are King size or 2 singles depending on guest requirement. All our suites are luxurious but the “honeymoon suite” with a huge four poster mahogany bed is a particularly intimate space and can be reserved for any special occasion.


Travelling east on the N2 towards Grahamstown approximately an hour out of Port Elizabeth you will turn off to the right at the Karel Landman/Alexandria turn off and enter the Amakhala Game Reserve. Bukela is 10km down this road on the right hand side and clearly marked
