This Lodge and ist individual Chalets are really a Highlight for a trip to South Africa! We have been traveling around SA for our family vacation already for many years, and the North of Johannesburg is really a very attractive area to stay. And this Lodge even more ... We are a Family of 6, and the Chalets offer a... More

I liked the place, quite and it feels as if you are far away not in Johannesburg. I really liked the place. In future I think they must make it a B&B so that we know we are paying for bed and breakfast. That would make sense and value for money

Thank you for the positive review. Our room rates are room only but you are given a choice of additional breakfast or self-catering facilities. I apologise if this was not clear at time of booking. Perhaps we can welcome you again sometime on a bed & breakfast basis in order for you to enjoy our delicious breakfast on the pool... More

The arrival gave a WOW feeling. Our rondavel was turned into a pure love nest with candles burning throughout the rondavel. We slept very well and enjoyed the pool area. The only addition to perfection would be to offer more on the food side on the premises outside the lovely breakfast. There was very little to eat and the closest... More

We stayed here for the 94.7 Cycle Challenge and we were VERY happy about everything! They advised alternative routes and arranged gate passes. We had a special price for the honeymoon suites. Very comfortable rooms. Contacting Natalie first by telephone and her friendly response made the decision to do the booking here. Thando & staff very friendly and helpful.

Aquanzi Lodge was a great experience. The site is so beautiful it doesn’t even feel like I am in Johannesburg. The hospitality of the owners and the staff members is just on another level. The nature resources just made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. This was the best vacation a lodge... More

Excellent accommodation with a countryside feeling yet very close to the urban life. Very quiet and peaceful. Has a very nice setup with the accommodation, pool and white sea sand surrounded by huge trees. Highly recommended. Will most definately visit again.

Wanted to have a peaceful night by myself. Extremely quiet slept like a baby. Did not like that fact that you don't take cards. Breakfast not wow. The place is beautiful I guess when the construction is finished on the main road it would be a trip worth taking. Loved the oriental feel of the room. Loved the Persian carpets... More

This is a great secure location that it very quiet and not to far from shops and restaurants (approx 10 mins by car) when the road works are finished it will be better. Its about 45 mins from the airport if your GPS works and the traffic isn't to bad but try to avoid rush hour as that trip can... More

Aquanzi has enhanced its amenities even further. This sprawling estate on the border of Johannesburg's northern suburbs offers visitors an African country experience within a 15-minute drive of sophisticated shopping malls, restaurants and theaters. For our recent visit we booked a spacious, comfortable, well-appointed and tastefully furnished executive suite with self-catering facilities. As traveling photo-journalists, it gave my wife and...
