Welcome to the Country House - a proud member of the Heritage Collection on Amakhala Game Reserve. Situated in the malaria free Greater Addo and Frontier Country area in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, 45 minutes’ drive east from Port Elizabeth, this breathtaking reserve offers sightings of the Big Five and numerous other species.
In 1926 the Fowlds family began wool farming on Leeuwenbosch farm. In 1930 the building which is today Shearer's Lodge was erected as a dedicated sheep shearing shed. Sheep farming continued until 1996 when the farm was converted to a game reserve. The old shed, in which close on a million merino sheep were shorn, has been beautifully converted into four luxury en-suite rooms, three twins and one really special honeymoon suite and surrounded by indigenous gardens. Both the Country House and Shearer's Lodge have been graded to four star standards. The old stables on Leeuwenbosch were converted into an intimate and quaint family chapel and together with the Country House and Shearer's Lodge make an ideal wedding venue.
