Jamie "This is our last safari run and we had seen all of the Big Five so it was a free for all. We drove past the steaming river. The first animal we saw was the wildebeast and then a black bat Jackel with many giraffe. As it was cold and dark we decided to have our breakfast stop and then go out hunting the animals. We could not find anything for …
Edie " This was a magical morning. The first thing we saw was four Cheetahs by the river. We followed the Cheetahs and we noticed they were hunting so we stalked them. They were four male Cheetahs. The first animal the Cheetahs tried to get were Nyalas and Bucks. They did not manage to catch them. We watched the Cheetahs mess up but Gert said that …
Edie " We had to get up really early – 5am for our morning safari. I was the first up out of bed. We went were collected by Gert and taken for hot chocolate and biscuits.

Jamie " We went through the gates to Amakhosi Lodge and we saw giraffes, impala, oystrich and wart hogs before we got to the Lodge. When we got to the Lodge we were taken to our villa which had its own pool, it overlooked a river. “

TravelPod Member ReviewsAmakhosi Safari Lodge Pongola
What a fantastic experience. From the moment we drove through the gates to the time of leaving. We were there with four children under ten and everyone had such a wonderful time. In addition to seeing the Big Five, we followed four Cheetahs on a mission to kill, watch giraffes eat Hyena bones and were surrounded by twenty elephants. We stayed at the Villa and relaxed watching the wild life drinking at the river below us. The food was delicious, service of a high standard. Any negatives - yep we weren't there long enough.
