Soak in the sun at Hlosi Game Lodge at Amakhala Game Reserve

Hlosi Game Lodge

Feet up, drink in hand, soaking up the sun while watching a group of Zebra drinking from the waterhole a few metres away is how my stay at Hlosi Game Lodge started.

Hlosi Game Lodge, an hour’s drive from Port Elizabeth, is a 4-Star accommodation situated in the malaria-free Amakhala Game Reserve in Addo in the Eastern Cape.

Accommodation on offer at Hlosi includes four double suites, four luxury tents, four family tents and two double-roomed family suites, all accessible via a wooden walkway a short distance from the main lodge.

The Main Lodge with its lounge, dining areas and bar, offers a refined setting of dark woods and interesting African decor on display. Guests are also able to enjoy the large deck outdoors overlooking the waterhole nearby. There is also a pool for those hot summer days.

Hlosi Game Lodge

During my visit, I experienced something truly special; an intimate stay in the African bushveld in a luxury safari tent. The luxury tents are tastefully decorated and offer all the modern conveniences including full en-suite bathrooms, an air conditioner, electric blankets and a minibar.

The tent opens up onto a wooden deck offering not only panoramic views of the valley, but immediacy with nature. The cry of a pair of Jackals late in the evening and waking up to Impala grazing just outside was testament to this.

From full continental breakfasts, lunches with tea and delectable sweet eats on the deck to fine dining in the evenings, the food was truly exquisite.

With our fantastic game ranger, Lucky, we were able to encounter lions, elephant and rhino amongst many other antelope on our game drives.

Hlosi also offers night game drives, stargazing, birding, bush walks, archery, spa therapy and fishing.

After a stay at Hlosi Game Lodge, you will leave with a new love and appreciation for the African bushveld.
