View of  the Krans (The Afrikaans word for Cliff) Guided Safari Trips


4-star rated Woodbury Lodge is spectacularly set against a cliff above the Bushmans River valley in the malaria free area of the Amahkala Game Reserve.  One can see the many aloes growing up on the cliff as well as around the lodge. "Amakhala" - the isixhosa name for "place of many aloes" justifies the immense beauty of such a plant. Woodbury Lodge offers an intimate and tranquil experience of the Eastern Cape riverinebushveld and the Big-5, along with diverse fauna and flora, bird, mammal and antelope species. It is the ideal place for families to relax and enjoy the bush together. Guests are often thrilled by the late afternoon sighting of the elephant herd passing by.

Our six Lodges all have private decks and large bathrooms with a view over the plains and provide accommodation for up to 12 people.

 The 3 main aspects of any African safari are the game-viewing, the accommodation and the food - at Woodbury Lodge we take special care to ensure that heartfelt service combines with these three “ingredients” to make your African safari experience a memorable and enjoyable one.

Child minding facilities are available at an additional fee .


A range of game viewing under guidance of professional game wardens and other activities such as the river cruise and bush walks are on offer, or you could just recline around the communal swimming pool and enjoy some sun while the birds keep you company. Unfortunately no under 6 years are permitted on game drives. Read more about the Game drives and wildlife here ...
