Guests to Amakhala Game Reserve can rest assured that their safari or stay will not be adversely affected by the local water crisis – nor by national load shedding as Amakhala is a self-sustainable reserve with its own natural water and power supplies.
Plenty of clean, fresh water
While the water situation in the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality area has reached crisis point, prompting the city to declare a Day Zero, Amakhala’s lodges do not rely on the municipal dams in the surrounding area for our water.
All our lodges on Amakhala have a stable and sustainable water supply from an abundance of boreholes across the reserve. Our guests are assured of ample safe, clean and healthy water for drinking, toiletries, showering and swimming in our pools. Our boreholes also keep our precious and abundant wildlife on the reserve hydrated during the water shortage.
Lights are on!
Similarly, our guests are not affected by the electricity load shedding the national power utility has been forced to implement as a result of both planned and unplanned maintenance. With either generators or solar panels that harness the energy of our African sun to power most of our lodges, Amakhala is able to provide guests with a near-uninterrupted electricity supply. You can rest assured that while visiting our magnificent part of the Eastern Cape, you will not be affected by darkness, disruption or the frustration of load shedding.
Safe and hygienic
In light of Covid-19, we would like to assure our agents and guests that we follow the strictest health and safety guidelines and meet all required preventative measures at all our lodges. We are also taking every measure and precaution available to protect our guests, including a sustainable water supply for hygiene purposes as an added level of protection.
There is no doubt that the drought and water situation, load shedding and Covid-19 has affected many areas of our province. However, as our guest, you can enjoy absolute peace of mind that your stay at Amakhala Game Reserve will not be affected and that you can expect all the little luxuries while visiting and creating great memories!
With the inter-provincial borders finally opened after the Covid-19 lockdown, we look forward to welcoming you to Amakhala!
