What to Expect

Quatermain’s Camp features an intimate 6-bed setup with crisp white 1900s-style safari tents, adorned with military campaign furnishings reminiscent of pioneers and explorers. The rustic charm extends to the central boma area, where open-fire cooking and candlelit dinners under starlit skies create a magical atmosphere. The camp stays true to expedition style, offering modern amenities in rustic en-suite bathrooms. Guests unwind on private decks, experiencing the sounds of nature, from jackals’ calls to the majestic roar of lions.

The camp’s mission is to provide a 3-star graded, genuine bush experience, where colonial-style tents and personal attention enhance the safari adventure. Safari drives, departing directly from camp, promise encounters with the “Big 5” under the guidance of experienced rangers. Quatermain’s Camp invites guests to reconnect with nature, offering an enriching safari that fosters wonder and understanding of the captivating wildlife in the Amakhala Game Reserve.

Safari Game Drives

Become part of Africa as you experience our Big 5 Safari Adventure on malaria free Amakhala Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape of South Africa..

Included in your stay are morning and evening game drives leaving from your lodge. You will be guided by informative, professional rangers through Amakhala Game Reserve in open Land Rovers. Here you can return to nature and explore the abundant wildlife, the diverse vegetation and the dramatic landscape of the Eastern Cape.

We would like to offer guests booking for 3 nights or more the opportunity to replace 1 of their game drives with a guided Wilderness Walk on the main Amakhala Game Reserve (in a ‘Big 5’ area – only for guests over the age of 16 years), a guided birding walk, or a guided Bush Walk in a non-dangerous game area (up to 6 guests, any ages welcome).
