“Great place! Great pool!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Wonderful lodge! I traveled from San Francisco to visit SA for a month and my stay at the Amafu Lodge was far and away the highlight. The villas are huge and well appointed with proper spacing and privacy between them. Ours came with its own picnic bench and BBQ, which we made full use of. Anne and all of the other staff that we encountered were extremely helpful setting up activities and answering questions.
The location is excellent! On a small hill, just outside Hoedspruit and near the animal rehabilitation center. I went to sleep hearing the calls of the center's animals off in the distance - awesome!
Finally, the Amafu's infinity pool is a real gem - and never very crowded. We used it every day!
Overall, I loved my stay here and look forward to coming back again.

Reviewed 20 June 2013

We had booked at the lodge, but there was a double booking so we were checked into a cottage off the lodge which had not been cleaned. The owners were very apologetic and offered us a free night to use at a later stage. The outdoor shower had no hot water so we had to bath. The braai was broken but we managed to fix it. A poor experience, but we still had a good evening and the beds were comfy.

Room Tip: Stay in a cottage on the lodge and perhaps call ahead to ensure they have not messed up your booking...
