De zuidelijke kustlijn tussen Kaapstad en Port Elizabeth wordt ook wel de Tuinroute genoemd. De naam duidt op het feit dat in het voorjaar – in oktober en november – de flora hier zo uitbundig bloeit dat het net één grote tuin lijkt. Het wijngebied, in de directe omgeving van Kaapstad, met pittoreske plaatsjes als Stellenbosch en Franschhoek, is ook absoluut een hoogtepunt tijdens uw vakantie in Zuid-Afrika.
"All you could wish for and .......more"
We have just left Bush Lodge, Amakhale Game Reserve after 3 wonderful days there. The accommodation is fantastic and the staff make you feel very special guests. Everything in this lodge has been thought about and there was great attention to detail, from the moment you are welcomed until the second you leave, This was our first safari. Our ranger â€œDJâ€ was exceptional, his â€œgame knowledgeâ€ made our time there very special. He seemed to know where and when all the â€œbig fiveâ€ would appear and ...they did! We feel very fortunate to have met him. We were struck by how much importance is given to animal welfare and the preservation of endangered species. This was not just amongst the rangers, but all staff who were totally engaged in the subject and passionate about it. The food was excellent, great choice, abundant, beautifully presented in an amazing dining room, where you can watch the wildlife come a go at the watering hole just in front. The massage / spa area is not to be missed - Hajeera worked wonders with a stiifneck and bad back. We cannot fault this lodge - â€œall inclusiveâ€ does not donâ€™t it justice. We felt we were staying at a friends house - where nothing was too much trouble. Whatever type of safari you want, they can can provide and make you feel part of their very special â€œfamilyâ€. Thank you for a wonderful few days. Weâ€™ll be back!
"Exceeded all expectations"
I donâ€™t normally write reviews but felt Bush Lodge truly deserved one. Our family, including 2 girls in their 20s, have been talking about it ever since! Amazing place, fabulous food, staff could not have been more lovely. Our guide James (DJ) was so knowledgeable but also great fun and apart from seeing some incredible animals we had the best coffee and G&T spots ever! Thank you for creating the most fabulous memories for our family. Xx
"Thank you to the whole Amakhala Bush Lodge Team"
I have never written a recommendation on TripAdvisor before. But for Amakhala Bush lodge I have decided to do an exception. So where shall I start? When the Bush Lodge has been recommended to me I read some not so nice comments in this forum and was in fact a little concerned while we booked our stay. We were on a family trip and stayed for 3 nights with Amakhla Bush lodge. This was our very first safari so I cannot compare Amakhla game reserve with other game reserves. Unfortunately we were a little late on our arrival date so Brenda from the Bush lodge team called us to check whether we were doing fine since they were expecting us earlier. In fact this was our first contact and we felt already very welcome before we even arrived at the main lobby to check-in. Check-in was very informative and polite too and once we entered the safari vehicle our concern switched to excitement. Staff was already waiting for us and we were warmly welcomed and shown around the lodge. As we missed lunch we were offered to have something to eat before dinner and they brought us delicious food to our tents. We stayed together with my mum and had 2 beautiful and very chic tents. The tents were decorated with authentic african furniture and had a cosy large king bed. I had some extra wishes and they were all fulfilled immediately. The food is absolutely amazing! From breakfast to diner everything is freshly prepared and on haute-cuisine level. Godfrey cooks his dishes to perfection and service is outstanding, always friendly with a smile and just attentive. Our Ranger â€žDJâ€œ (James) was the most authentic, cool, funny, experienced ranger we could have expected. He has a great knowledge of wildlife and nature and explained, amongst others, the behaviours of the animals to us. We learned a lot and saw elephants, giraffes, zebras, lions, buffalo, rhinos, monkeys and many more. We had so much fun in our group and always felt save with our ranger. My mum had some problems with her back as she had a fall with the beginning of our SA trip. The spa was under construction during our stay but she was offered to have a massage in her tent which must have been very good too. Last but not least I need to mention Amakhala Bush lodge has outstanding staff, everybody is unbeliveable friendly and we had the impression staff is more one big family than colleagues. In fact we felt like being part of the family and we were really sad we had to leave this place. Thank you James, Brenda, Norman and all for giving is the time of our lives. We will never forget this wonderful experience with you!
"The most beautiful place"
We spent 3 nights at Amakhala Bush Lodge. From the moment we arrived at the main office and was greeted by the lovely Penny, we were treated so fantastically well. Nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff and the attention to detail superb. The tents are absolutely beautiful and the beds super comfortable. The twice daily game drives were amazing, every trip throwing up new encounters and sightings. Our guide Melissa was outstanding and her care, passion and love of all animals was clear to see. Her enthusiasm was second to none. Returning in the evening to a hot bath and fire prepared by the staff was such a treat. The food faultless and the drink plentiful. We would return in a heartbeat.
"Life-long dream come true"
We just spent 3 nights at the Amakhala Bush Lodge after booking with the amazing Anna Springer of Audley Travel and loved every minute! Our guide, Melissa, was so knowledgable and passionate about wildlife, plamts and anything we could hope to learn about and was a master tracker! We saw so many animals from the first drive to the last, but always with her patience and perseverance to find, observe and be in awe of every species. She made our trip 200% more complete. We had 2 3 1/2 hour + drives per day!!! I enjoyed a great massage in an open air room with bonus watering hole just outside for monkey and wart hog sightings!) by Hajeera. Each day there's time to chill from 11-2 and I highly recommend booking this before you arrive to treat yourself. The price is far less than here in the states.) The "tents' were lovely with heat and a/c and a freshly drawn hot, bubbly bath to come back to each evening. The views, deck and plunge pool were perfect for bonus animal viewing mid-day. Reception, meals and drives were all well organized and planned. I highly recommend Amakhala and cant't wait to return, next time for 5 nights.
