I stayed for one night at Amani Lodge in mid-December 2012 and the rate (N$ 1185 Euro 118.50) includes bed and breakfast. Guests are accommodated in tented chalets which are spacious and comfortable – no complaints there. Situated on the mountains west of Windhoek good views of the surrounding area are enjoyed. The lion enclosure, situated below the chalets, provided... More

Amani Lodge was our last stop after a three week trip in Botswana and Namibia. It is the highest accommodation in Namibia so we literally were on top of Namibia for our last night. We overestimated how long it would take to get from Sossusvlei so we arrived at around midday. While unexpectedly early we were still welcomed, and lunch... More

I called this place to have an outing for the family for a birthday of a family member. I was told on the telephone from a very strict receptionist that we are obliged to have the "big cat experience" if we would want to eat there. We were planning a day excursion from Harare.It would cost 55 Euros if you... More

The most enjoyable day out I have had in ages! Got there in time for a great light lunch. Had a walk for an hour in the extensive grounds before the big cat tour. Saw cheetahs and lions really close up, before having the privilege of being able to handle one of the pet cheetahs. Marvellous.

Amani was a great start to our Namibian driving holiday. Only 20kms or so south of Windhoek so an easy start for jetlagged travellers. The cabins are comfortable, with expansive views from the balcony although water pressure is low for showering. The food was generally good, though everyone's chicken was underdone and had to be recooked (they were having trouble... More

We have been there with out two kids. The location is terrific. Beautiful view and the cottages are designed very well into the landscape. The staff was very friendly. Especially our "ranger" who took us around to the cheetah- and lion feeding, as well playing with the tame cheetahs, has been very nicely taken care of us. She explained a... More

This place was desolate and primitive. We were the ONLY guests which was scary at night in the pitch black with lions roaring nearby! The food was awful! In the morning, the hot water carafe was filled with hundreds of dead flies! The eggs came out burnt and we basically left starving. The cabins have dead bugs and no security.... More

Did a day trip one Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the Big Cat Experience. Our guide, Andrew, was very knowledgable and he patiently answered all our questions. Its a great way to see lions and cheetahs (their leopard just died :( ) up close. They were so close I was able to take amazing photos! The sunset was also amazing and... More

To start with I will point out there are 2 sides to the Amani Lodge: 1) The lodge itself, which functions as a B&B and 2) The Big Cat experience. Most reviews of Amani are old, so this reflects the recent state of the lodge and is about the lodge itself. This lodge is on the expensive side and when... More

I had limited time to go on any real safari which require a minimum of three days. After consulting locals the big sanctuary at Amani lodge was short listed. It is about an hour drive out of Windhoek and at an elevated spot, costs around US$100. The high points are feeding and closely watching leopards, cheetahs and lions. The drive... More
