About Amakhala - Reed Valley Inn
Reed Valley has been in the Weeks family for over one hundred years. It was purchased in 1898 by Jabez Weeks, son of an 1820 Settler. The previous owners were of Dutch descent. The main house is estimated to have been built in 1806. Through time, many farming enterprises such as cows, sheep, ostriches, crocodiles, pineapples and dairy have had their successes and failures.
Rod and Tracey Weeks are now the fifth generation on Reed Valley which is part of the Amakhala Game Reserve. Our forefathers spent their time hunting leopard, lions and elephant to enable them to farm in peace and now we have re-introduced them in a unique joint conservation project with five neighbouring family farms.
Reed Valley Inn is nestled in a farmyard and is comprised of four historic en-suite country rooms, which once provided rest and safety for the travellers on the mail wagon. Each room has a separate entrance on to a private patio. Children of all ages are welcome.
A sumptuous dinner featuring local specialties will be served with true Eastern Cape hospitality. In the morning, enjoy a hearty breakfast before you set off to discover the untold beauty of our land.
Your stay will be made special by personalised attention and arrangements that are tailor-made to suit your requirements from catering to excursions and activities.
We offer rooms that are serviced daily, a swimming pool, and classic pub.
