We really enjoyed staying at Ama Amanzi. It is a great place to experience Afríca as the accommodation is very small and private and personal in the middle of the bush. The children felt like it was their place. Breakfast was brought to our lodge and was very nicely prepared. Astrid and Gerhard were great hosts and good cooks. Really...

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!
