About the Lodge

Bukela Game Lodge is a 5-star luxury lodge in the Amakhala Game Reserve, Addo Eastern Cape, South Africa. Accommodation at this tranquil luxury game lodge is provided in four suites and ten luxury safari tents, each individually styled in African simplicity while never compromising on luxury. 

Connected by a wooden walkway, Bukela offers a remarkable private wildlife-viewing experience. Indulge in sumptuous high teas, private candlelit dinners or exciting fireside boma dinners under African stars.
