Stayed here at the end of 2 weeks in SA. Arrived late after driving from Cape Town to Joburg and received a lovely welcome and help to find somewhere still serving dinner. Room very well equipped, clean and very comfortable. Nice relaxing breakfast set up to start the day. Thanks for your hospitality.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Amanzi Guest House, which is set in a lovely, green oasis of calm. We had a beautiful, spacious room, with a well-equipped kitchen, and a lounge with a TV. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony or on the deck by the pool in the evening listening to the birds. Pam and Rob were... More

Pam and Rob are first class hosts in this well appointed guesthouse which is convenient for any business or leisure visit to the Johannesburg area. They clearly care for the environment and are passionate ambassadors for modern South Africa. The rooms are large and comfortable with self catering facilities. Breakfast is substantial and should keep you fortified for the rest... More

Was fortunate to stay at this guesthouse on the most wonderful room which had a full kitchenette and lounge area. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the hospitality of the guesthouse owners. Breakfast was also delicious and they were very accommodating with respect to breakfast times. Definitely recommended!

Amani is an amazing place, and the hosts could not be more accommodating. Each apartment is spacious, with plenty of room for an extended stay (though it was also perfect for our brief two-night visit). Breakfasts were terrific, and there are shops and restaurants within a brief (but scenic) walking distance. After spending time in Craighal Park (where Amanzi is... More

Immaculately clean rooms which are preciously spacious, well ventilated with crisp clean, white cotton linen (a must for me). A dreamy garden that allows you to fall asleep to the lullaby sound of running water from their waterfall.

We stayed at Amanzi recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was quiet and peaceful with every need taken care of. Pam and Rob are excellent hosts paying attention to every detail.
