Hear the bush breathe
Woodbury Tented Camp is an intimate, family-run Camp on the malaria-free Amakhala Game Reserve. Opened in 1999 by the Gush family, the lodge offers a tranquil base from which to experience exciting Big Five game viewing. Woodbury Tented Camp is one of the hidden jewels of the Eastern Cape, tucked into a secluded hillside thicket overlooking the ancient floodplain of the Bushman's River.
Camp consists of ten comfortable en-suite tents on raised bases, each with their own private decks, providing an intimacy with the bush like no other. Each tent has king-size or twin beds at your request with hot running water, electric blankets for those cold evenings, and all the amenities required to make your stay comfortable. Also in the portfolio are two family tents which adjoin on the balcony allowing families to enjoy the African bush together.
Camp life is centered around the thatch and canvas main dining and lounge area, with its expansive deck overlooking the Woodbury plains. A wide variety of game species such as zebra, giraffe, buffalo and elephant are regularly seen from the deck, while the haunting cry of fish eagles echoes across the valley. Many of the staff at Woodbury Tented Camp have grown up in the area and take pride in providing a friendly service and ensuring that your stay is a memorable one.
About 75 km from Port Elizabeth on the N2 to Grahamstown you will cross the Bushman's River. Just after the bridge you will see the road sign for Woodbury Lodge, turn right under the thatched roof. Enter the gate and follow the signs to Woodbury Tented Camp.
