          We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ama Amanzi, taken care of by the wonderful Astrid and Gerhardt. The chalet was stylish and comfortable. Our stay was of excellent value with the great outdoor breakfast and nice dinner both prepared by our lovely hosts.

          Perfect location in the bush, 4 kms off the road. Very private. Super friendly staff. Had a delicious braai near the pool, Thousands of stars in the sky. Abundant breakfast on the terrace of the main lodge. Beautiful garden.
