We are two couples who stayed in Amazulu guest house for one night, while visiting the Hluhluwe game reserve. We had a very friendly welcome by the owner and were particularly impressed with the effort put into the outside areas. We had a lovely braai in the well equipped braai area and were impressed with the trouble the owners took... More

Enjoyable stay, very warm and welcoming owners. Fantastic decor, spacious and very clean. Close to most activities, owners kept us informed of things to do. The coffee could be better! Overall great place and excellent value for money, will definitely visit again!

Excellent stay. Beautiful beaches and game reserves, Great breakfast, great rooms, friendly host. Only negatives would be the amount of trucks on the road, which made driving around the area less pleasant and the coffee could be levelled up.

Friendly owner. Amazing stay. Very comfortable and would definitely stay there again. Made to feel very welcome and very accomodating to my family, especially travelling with an infant. Breakfast really delicious. The only downfall is that the air conditioning did not work properly as it only blew out hot air and would not go below 28 degrees. We were quite... More

It was very good value for money with a nice breakfast included. We had a nice dinner on our terrace cooked by the owner. It was very... More

We booked the smallest room. On the phone we were informed that this room has no windows. To our surprise it was a big room. The door had windows in it so it didn't feel at all that there was no window. On our first night I met an unwanted visitor in the bathroom: a cockroach. I was surprised because... More

The B&B is located in a very quiet and safe area of Hluhluwe, very close to Hluhluwe National Park. The rooms were very clean, quiet and lovely furnished. Breakfast was also excellent. Thanks to the friendly and helpful owners.
