Bush Lodge is a picturesque 5-star lodge found only 45 minutes drive east of Port Elizabeth and transports guests to another, better world. Bush Lodge is set in the spectacular Amakhala Reserve in an open valley flanked by rolling hills and lush riverine vegetation.
Here, discreetly tucked between the treetops, is an intimate lodge of wood, canvas and thatch – the perfect base from which to explore this rustic slice of the African wild. In addition to the lodge’s sumptuous lounge, bar and elevated outdoor boma. Private plunge pools, on-site therapists and alfresco double showers set the tone for a focus on comfort.
Each of the eight private rooms offers en-suite facilities, private lounge and climate control. The Big 5 are all found on the hills and plains of Amakhala as are a variety of birds and diverse vegetation. The scenery is truly spectacular and guests are invited to enjoy the landscape from every possible angle – including sundowner canoe safaris and a cheese and wine boat cruise.
Built in the bush at the top end of an open valley in the reserve, each of the Double Luxury Tents overlook a watering point with sky views. All buildings are thatched roofs, tented walls and wooden floors.
