Staying here for 2 nights and having 4 game drives was a great experience. There are 2 game drives each day, one at 6am and one at 4pm each one lasts 3 to 3 and a half hours. It covers a very large area and the animals are all free to roam so it's down to luck what you get to see.The tents are fine with nice comfy beds. Food was good, breakfast, lunch and dinner provided together with drinks. Staff were lovely, all very pleasant and eager to please. Would stay again.

Our three night stay at the Woodbury tented camp was brilliant. Our guide was great and we got to see lots. We did have a bit of a medical issue while we were there (nothing to do with the camp) and the staff were amazing. Nikki, Corlia, Dylan and Giles were incredible and really helped us out. Really recommend it

This was an all inclusive stay which had a well planned itinerary. As described on the website, arrival includes a drink. After lunch we had our first drive. Lasted about three hours. Dinner was communal at one long table. The tent is definitely not the standard one found in the bush. Secure, spacious and not too warm or cold. There is an early sunrise drive, where blankets are provided. Ryan was our guide and answered questions well. The guides communicate with other guides and this makes it possible to see animals rather than looking for them most of the time. Wide variety of animals in a natural environment. Well worth the time and money.

We stayed at Woodbury for 3 nights at the start of our honeymoon. We would definitely recommend doing a safari at the beginning of your trip as the early starts can be tiring. Three nights is the perfect amount of time at the camp with plenty of opportunity to see everything you want to. We saw cheetah, lion, elephant, zebra, impala, water buffalo, rhino, giraffe and much more. All within a very close distance. The guides are very good at ensuring the animals are well cared for while maintaining an authentic environment for them and ensuring that there are not too many vehicles trying to see the animals at once. On many drives we didn’t even come near another vehicle.

Seamus was our guide and he was fantastic. Friendly with a great sense of humour and very knowledgable. All the staff at the camp are great and we greatly enjoyed the excellent food. The tents are a very good size, we were lucky to have a deck over looking the reserve and the electric blankets were definitely needed! Make sure you take lots of layers! The other facilities within the tent are basic but perfectly adequate and in keeping with the camps website. If you are looking for a more affordable safari with excellent game available then this is the place for you.

Stayed: September 2017

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Woodbury Tented Camp is one of the hidden jewels of the Eastern Cape. Tucked into an embracing hillside thicket and overlooking the ancient floodplain of the Bushman’s River, the camp offers rustic and secluded luxury, and an authentic African wildlife safari experience. Eight large, comfortable, en-suite tents on raised bases and with private patios provide the seclusion, tranquility and an intimacy with the bush that you would expect on a visit to Amakhala Game Reserve. Each tent has twin or double beds - at your request. Camp life is centered around the stone, thatch and canvas main dining and lounge area, with its expansive deck overlooking the Woodbury plain and waterhole. A wide variety of game species such as zebra, giraffe, buffalo, eland, rhino and elephant fill the passing parade while fish eagles soar overhead, their hauntingly evocative cry echoing across the valley. Soak up the sun while lazing on a recliner next to the pool; sip a refreshing drink or enjoy tea and delicious, freshly baked cakes, before venturing out into the reserve on your next expedition. ... more   less
