The Safari Experience

Guests at Quatermain's can enjoy the excitement of "Big 5" safaris on the award winning Amakhala Game Reserve, in a malaria free area.

Our twice daily 3 to 4 hour Game drives which depart directly from camp, are guided by our experienced rangers.

These safaris are sure to give you the best possible chance to see a variety of wildlife whilst sharing the knowledge that these dedicated guides have built up over the years.

To have a well rounded Safari experience, we recommend that our guests try to stay for at least two nights.
