The photos on the website looked exciting but when we arrived you couldn't imagine the scale of this masterpieces. We were there for two nights so had plenty of time to walk around and really appreciate this work of art and the dedication of the owners. I would like to see it declared a 'Site of Special Interest' for future... More

Apart from the very special and beautiful location with thousands of collectors items, the room and breakfast was super, especially when you have a reduction on booking ;-) A little minus: not close to find some restaurants.

Amazing museum... Never seen anything like it! Lots of creativity and hard work went into creating this masterpiece. Visited couple who stayed there for two nights. Huge pillars decorated. Many African artifacts decorate the hotel and gardens!

Amazing place where 1 night isn't enough to discover the building. Nice welcome, great room, excellent breakfast.. location a bit difficult to find. We really recommend this place to saty, and immerse ourselves in the strange atmosphere created by the owner and his friends.

My wife and I got married on a sugarcane farm near Richmond and were looking for somewhere to stay in or near Kloof, that wasn't quite all the way back in Durban. On the advice of friends who live in Kloof, we booked one night's accommodation at Ammazulu African Palace. We only needed one night because we needed to return... More

I enjoyed my stay at AmmaZulu African Palace and I would book it againin the new year because they were very hospitable even though it was a last minute booking. I quite liked the African culture theme and artefacts inside

Wow, I am always amazed at this place! Every time I visit this place, they have upgraded it and one feels more than at home. I love our room, very specious and romantic and the staff is just great. It is a very relaxing palace and we always end our vacation here because of the breath taking experience. Thank you,... More

Friendly staff and nice breakfast. The room I had was spacious with large bathroom with separate shower, all in good condition. Its away from main roads, nice and quiet but you'll need a car and directions. About a 5-10 min drive to local restaurants etc.
