Woodbury Lodge, as part of the Amakhala Reserve, is a fantastic combination of bush camp luxury without too much over the top plush and pretentiousness. The accommodation and food are equally excellent and only surpassed by the wonderful staff. Informative and enthusiastic game drives and a real ‘be sociable if you want or relax in peace if you don’t’ atmosphere is perfect. If you are lucky you will witness something really special on a game drive like we did, although not many people would be fortunate enough to say they witness a live giraffe birth. You will also be playing your part in a responsible tourism establishment that donates a portion of every guest’s stay to the Amakhala Foundation based in the nearby Paterson community.
