Mount Amanzi is a great venue for a weekend away, especially if you're from Joburg, it's less than an hours drive. The resort is fantastic, with ample of activities for the kids to spend the day, it is well maintained and very neat, clean and safe. The kids were eager to catch some fish, but it seemed that the dams are not stocked at all. With the big number of fisherman on the various dams, I only saw 1 fish being caught the entire weekend. Only used the heated pool which was very well kept, even though it was quite full due to the cooler weather. The bar service at poolside was very good and the drinks were reasonably priced. The general pool area was great and we spent a relaxing afternoon lazing around the pool. The chalets could do with an upgrade though, they are extremely small and sometimes become claustrophobic for our family of 4. The main bed is right outside the bathroom and right next to the kitchen, so there is absolutely no privacy. The kids slept in the loft upstairs, which contains 3 single beds, but to use the bathroom during the night, they would have to come downstairs, waking everyone up in the process. The chalets need a major upgrade as well as a re-design, they just do not work for families. On the plus side, the chalets are fully serviced (except on Sundays), and have all the utensils to make your stay very comfortable, as well as aircons to warm up the chilly morning. All in all Mount Amanzi offers great value for money for a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
