The temporary management staff, Bart and Lindi, did their utmost best to make our stay memorable. The braai was delicious and our Cheetah lodge was very nice and clean. The lodge is 4 km away from the main building where we had our daily breakfast (reachable via a narrow sand path). Diner was served at our lodge in stead of...

Our first visit to Ama Amanzi was a real surprise, we didn't expect to find a place like this in the bush. Everything was just surprising, from the warm welcome by Iris up to the little honesty basket and honesty bar in our room. The bed was of good quality and the down duvets a plus for the cold winter...

Ama Amanzi is a small spot of elegance in the middle of the Limpopo bushveld. The accommodation puts you in touch with nature and provides privacy from other guests.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Your GREAT getaway in the bush! Stunning lodge in the beautiful Waterberg Biosphere, an UNESCO Heritage at the last true wilderness of South Africa. A warm welcome in the bush with a value for money accommodation with personal attention. Private, luxurious and yet intimate as if you were staying at your own lodge. We can customize almost anything for you. Come for an overnight stay, a lovely weekend to relax in the bush or let us organize you a complete holiday of a couple of weeks. We have three different accommodations for you. We also offer several business possibilities, of course accommodation but also teambuilding events, meetings in the bush, coach sessions, etc. Enjoy our fabulous dinners with excellent wines, relax on your own veranda, fall asleep in your 100% cotton linens with luxury down duvets. Be a bit more active and enjoy our workshops like 'Basic Wildlife' or 'Photography.' Only the presence of non dangerous game allows you to walk around freely or take your bicycle for a nice ride on the trails. Hope to welcome you soon!
