Very friendly atomsphere in stylish rondavel. Loved breakfast on the terrasse and save environments to jog in the morning. Nothing to experience JHB directly but for all other reasons great place to stay.

Aquanzi Lodge & Dive Centre is located very quiet and peacefully, not too far from very good shopping and restaurant facilities. The rooms are fabulous decorated, and very convenient. It's quite complicated for overseas guests to book into the lodge, as they only accept cash payment, and the room reservation has to be pre-paid, i.e. to international bank transfer. It... More

My husband and I spent Valentines day at Aquanzi Lodge. It was truly a blissful and relaxing stay and just what we needed. We enjoyed it. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. Sitting on the pool deck at the dive centre with the cool summer breeze, was awesome.

This was the last stop on our 4 week tour of South Africa and it turned out to be a gem. Rural surroundings which reminded us of Kruger, kind staff and great housekeeping. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the restaurant recommended for dinner was a great experience - a taste of Zulu life for the tourists but enormous fun. A... More

We have stayed at Aquanzi on several occasions and really enjoy the "rural feel" it offers and in-yet; it is very conveniently and closely located to everything you may wish to do in Johannesburg. The "orchestra" of bird-life and "arboretum of... More

Very nice place with very friendly staff. Room was cleaned daily and the pool area was nice. Overall I felt very welcome during my time here. Stayed in the Luxury Chalet and it was superb value. I would highly recommend Aquanzi.
