RESERVE ACTIVITIES

IMPORTANT NOTE: NO PRIVATE VEHICLE MAY DRIVE AROUND ON THE RESERVE.
• The duration of each official game drive is roughly 3 hours with set return times.
• Early morning drives commence roughly 30 min after first light.
• Late afternoon drives start roughly 3 hours before dark.
• Exact departure times change with the seasons and are communicated on arrival
No children under the age of 8 are normally allowed on game drives.
• AMAKHOSI does not accommodate young children on their drives.


WARNING: IMPORTANT NOTE: YOUNG CHILDREN ON GAME DRIVES:

• We are dealing with wild animals from an open vehicle. Wild animals are very unpredictable in the presence of unusual sounds and behaviour. Please do not put the guest’s lives in danger.
• Therefore, we need to be sure that the children and adults, can be dead quiet at sightings and stay seated motionlessly. Parents are the only ones who can anticipate their child’s behaviour at sightings.
• If the game cars, FROM NDLOVUKAZI ONLY, are not too full with other guests, and a car is available for only your family/group, we will take the children.
• If the ranger is comfortable that the children are well disciplined, he might take younger children on a family drive. It remains the ranger’s decision and he WILL RETURN THE GROUP TO CAMP, at the first mishap.
DAYTRIP ACTIVITIES AWAY FROM NDLOVUKAZI: The following can be reached from the river chalets and lodge in a daytrip, to return to your own bed in the evening:
  • A wonderful 3-hour, or full day, pontoon cruises on Jozini dam (70km from us) can be undertaken. Viewing of elephant, buffalo and/or rhinos are 85% sure in the dryer winter season. Enquire about essential pre-booking.
  • Hire a boat or bring your own, and go Tiger Fishing on Jozini Dam - the KZN Wildlife Golela entrance is 70km from us.
  • One could go fishing, skiing and have boat fun on the crocodile- and hippo free Bivane dam (80km). Bring your own boat.
  • Ithala Nature Park (60km) offers beautiful scenery, game and very good Sunday buffet lunches. Booking is advised.
  • Mkuze Game Reserve (100km) is well known for their excellent photographic possibilities at waterholes in the dryer winter months.
  • Ndumu- & Tembe Elephant Park Game Reserves need 4x4 vehicles. Ndumu is well known for birdlife. Tembe has beautiful waterholes.
  • Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve (180km) is a "Big 5" reserve with excellent Sunday buffet lunches at Hilltop camp. Pre-booking is essential.
  • A visit to Hluhluwe's Ilala Weavers for curios will be worth your while. Ilala Weavers products are known worldwide. They can also export your purchases all over the world. Ilala Weavers also have better prices than most street vendors do! On the same trip one can:
  • Do an Elephant interaction (1.5 hours away), visit a Croc and Reptile park (2 hours) and walk with cheetahs (2 hours) in the same day trip.
  • Visit North Coast resorts such as the beach at Cape Vidal (200km) and the coastal town of St Lucia.
  • The unspoilt beach at Sodwana Bay (150km via Jozini) offers the best scuba diving in South African waters. A 4x4 will be handy for beach driving - vehicles are allowed to park on the first 300m of the beach over weekends.
  • On the way to Sodwana, visit the picturesque dam wall of the Pongola Poort dam, also better known to locals as Jozini dam.
  • Zeekoepan is the ideal stopover on the way to Kosi Bay and the border post to Ponta D'Oura in Mozambique as well as the southern border posts of Swaziland.
  • The physically fitter persons can hike in the Ntendeka forest at Ngome. The full route is 20km (12,5 miles) long, but shorter routes can be taken through this wilderness heritage site.
  • For the keen historians, the battlefields route starts 120km from us and it is possible to visit the Prince Imperial's Grave (son of Napoleon Bonaparte), Isandlwana, Rourke’s Drift, and Blood River with ease, within such a trip.
