The Hlosi Game Lodge is truly superb - from the friendly hospitality and excellent service of Mario, Elvis and the entire staff to the game drives that exceeded our expectations. Lucky, our ranger, was very knowledgeable and thanks to him we saw not only the Big Five (up close!) but also many other fascinating animals. We fully recommend staying at...

We came for the Game Drive and were absolutely thrilled about the facility and the location. In addition to giraffe, we discover rhinoceros, chitas and zebras. The meal after the Game Drive was excellent.

Very authentic Game Reserve, Amakhala! Staying at Hlosi Lodge was very warm, friendly and lovely. The 6 games drives with the best driver Lucky you can have. We saw all the animals we wanted. He knows the area too well... Food in the evening was very delicious! Rooms, huts, lobby are built in a lovely African style with palappa roofs....

My family and I stayed three nights at the Hlosi Game Lodge in one of the luxury family safari tents. For our first safari experience we´ve chosen a smaller safari over the tourist heavy Kruger National Park. It was by far one of the best decisions we have made. The Amakhala reserve is smaller and it offers you the opportunity...

Not what the website makes it out to be. Safari was highlight but still not as good as others. Food and service were poor. Staff were getting orders wrong and lacked initiative. Manager was good on check in day- thumbs up to her. Our safari guide was knowledgable and pretty entertaining
