Amakhala Game Reserve
Amakhala is a game reserve found just 40 minutes outside of Port Elizabeth in the Greater Addo Region. The name 'Amakhala' means 'aloes' in Xhosa and was given to the area due to the abundance of these indigenous plants in the area.
Formed in 1999, the Amakhala reserve consists of 6 independently owned game lodges all owned by descendants of the original families who arrived here in 1820. Amakhala's conservation initiative is to re-introduce the animals that originally roamed the area, and the flora surrounding them, back onto the land. This is malaria-free 'Big Five' country where visitors are guaranteed to be amazed by both the strength and agility of the wildlife.
Game drives occur in the mornings and afternoons and guests are guided by experienced game rangers as they set out to explore the 6000 hectare reserve.
