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.
