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.
