What a great place to stay, clean and comfortable cabins, easy walk to the Kosi Bay Mouth. Fantastic catering facilities and such helpful staff Vosi and Themba. Vosi will take and pick you up form the beach if required. Themba is a welth of information about the histroy of the area.

Great location for: relaxing, kayaking & snorkelling in a beautiful setting, Tasty meals, followed by relaxing around a fire-pit, star gazing. Opportunities to learn about the traditional hand-made fish traps, passed down from generation to generation, for over 200 years, trapping fish moving in and out of the estuary with the tide, before spearing some fish, which were wrapped in...

I have to say that the accommodation was very good and quite rustic. The staff were very helpful and the food prepared was delicious. Peanut soup? Yes that's right and it was very tasty. The lodges were perfect and the surrounding camp added to the experience. Hot drinks were available all day and sitting by the camp fire at night... More

Amangwane gives you a real African experience. The lodges are basic but comfortable with en suite toilet and shower. The electricity in the camp is supplied with solar energy during the day with each lodge equipped with a battery which can be used to charge cameras, phones etc but only using a USB connection. After 5 o'clock until 10 in... More

Excellent, as a group of soldiers returning from afghanistan we got the chance to see South Africa and i loved this part of the trip. Dinner was caught from the fish trips which was prepared for us (there is other options) 100% recommended to back packers or people who love there outdoors.

The accommodation is basic but very comfortable. The food is simple but well prepared. The staff are delightful, very helpful and informative. The location is good, close to Kosi mouth. About a 30 minute brisk walk. Vusi or Justin will take you there in a 4x4 for about 100 rand return and help you carry your stuff to the "aquarium",... More

Thanks very much for reviewing Amangwane. We are looking into the possibility of moving the parking area closer to the gate, although it is only at peak periods (December especially) that there will be many cars because the volume of people is so much greater at that time. More

The Camp offers the necessary basics: Tents with 2 single rooms, ablutions separated only with a curtain from the main room and a shared kitchen. The water for the shower is heated by gas and depending on the wind it can smell quite a lot in the tent itself. The mosquito nets are to small for the bed and in... More

Amangwane was the only low point of our five weeks in SA (we stayed primarily in self-catering accommodation, including other tented accommodation, which provided a good basis for comparison). It feels like a kids camp -- our tent/reed shelter had two very rusty tin mugs in the bathroom, a horribly cracked and broken mirror with jagged edges placed at waist... More

Dear Travelover2003, we’re sorry the standard of the accommodation wasn’t what you were expecting. We do our best to ensure that guests know that the accommodation is very basic before they book. Amangwane is not just an accommodation establishment, it is a community development project with no outside funding. All profits are currently going back into improving the camp, which... More
