Luxury Travel Review

Article by Elena del Valle and photos by Juan Cooper

We saw lion several times and cheetah once during our stay

The Jacuzzi at my luxury one bedroom suite

We enjoyed good game viewing and many of the luxury features of Amakhosi Safari Lodge, a family friendly property with minimal malaria risk in South Africa’s KwaZulu Natal region. Although this area of the country, located near Durban in the east, has not been well known by safari oriented international visitors in the past this may change in 2010 with the added traffic from the FIFA World Cup games.

A few minutes walk down the main path led to my quiet and very private honeymoon suite

We much enjoyed the creations of the lodge’s young chef and her team

The lodge faced the Mkuse River, affording guests river fronting meals and accommodations in spacious suites with a water view. We liked the friendly and service oriented staff, gourmet meals and snacks, good game viewing, and lovely river facing honeymoon suite with private Jacuzzi plunge pool and riverside deck.
