Amakhala is named after the Xhosa word for aloes, the prolific indigenous plant found in this uniquely diverse province. Steeped in history and beauty, this game reserve creates an ideal environment for an unforgettable safari and an intimate experience of the varied landscape, including breathtaking views of the Bushman`s River. This game reserve is a unique conservation initiative that allows animals to be re-introduced to the area where they once roamed freely and so making a contribution to the conservation of our natural heritage.
Accommodation at Leeuwenbosch consists of the Country House and Shearers Lodge. Built in 1908 and set in its own lovely garden, The Country House is a large and beautiful home, which offers true country living in every sense. Both spacious and comfortable, it has four en-suite bedrooms and a newly added suite. Spend cheerful evenings in the old 1832 cellar pub where guests make many friends or enjoy a quiet game of billiards on the full size antique table. Shearers Lodge, set in the grounds of Leeuwenbosch, was originally built in 1930 and used for shearing and classing wool. Now converted into four luxury en-suite bedrooms, one with a private lounge, all the rooms open on to a wide colonial verandah, overlooking indigenous gardens, rolling lawns and the quaintly charming Leeuwenbosch Chapel.
