Windhoek, Namibia
Reviewed March 14, 2016

The lodge is situated just a short drive from Windhoek and as it is on one of the highest places around it has a magic view. The staff is very friendly. The tour features some big cats. The food was definitely underwhelming, so the only thing which was not average were the high prices.

We went there on a Saturday for the carnivore feeding tour and lunch. The lunch was rather limited and disappointing but the game drive was quite interesting and pleasant. Overall not a place that id really rant and rave about nor go back to again. It was all very average except for the prices.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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....

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...
