LUX April 2017

LUX - April 2017 33 An Unforgettable Experience in a Glorious Natural Paradise AmaKhosi Safari Lodge is nestled on the banks of the Mkuze river in the Amakhosi Private Game Reserve in the northern part of KwaZulu-Natal, 40km west of Pongola. The natural blend of river wetlands and valley bushland, with the umbrella thorn trees in the north, open grassland in the south, the thick bush grassland blanketing the mountains in the west and wild game roaming free, makes this a concealed unscathed paradise worthwhile to explore. To ensure guests enjoy a truly unforgettable experience, AmaKhosi teems with ‘Big Five’, giraffe, warthog, hyena, antelope, hippos and crocodile with the wetlands area resonating with over 400 bird species and home to fish eagle, giant kingfisher, narina trogon and the spectacular purple-crested lourie, among many others. Alongside the beautiful natural surroundings and exquisite array of wildlife that lives right on its doorstep, the lodge also prides itself on offering a high level of service and luxury living amidst striking surroundings in the heart of Zululand in a place where time belongs to the rhythm and beat of ancient Africa. An extraordinary destination where royal treatment is a part of each day, where the staff’s passion for the wildlife and bush filters through every moment, every encounter, every touch evident in the upscale accommodation, the outstanding cuisine, the up-close game viewing and the splendid charm in their manners which say, “Welcome in my private kingdom”. Additionally, AmaKhosi’s cuisine is a combination of African fusion style and European flair with personalised attention to dietary requirements and fresh produce sourced locally, ensuring that mealtimes are a highlight of any stay. Seeking to build upon its current success, AmaKhosi has recently completed renovation. The main lodge, the six luxurious river suites and two honeymoon suites have open views of the flowing Mkuze river and merge beautifully with the vast colours and textures of the surrounding wilderness. With comfortable air- conditioned lounge, bedroom, bathroom with a bath for two, separate shower and toilet, safe, bath robes, fully stocked mini-bar and a tea and coffee tray, artistic décor, African fusion cuisine and prompt attentive service, AmaKhosi is a lodge difficult to match. AmaKhosi Safari Lodge is a stunning private game reserve situated in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
