I can’t recommend this place highly enough. Beautiful apartments - spacious with every appliance you can think of. Wonderful hosts who attend to your every need (and their two gorgeous dogs who need regular petting ;-) Great eateries close by - I loved Conti Cafe. I felt

Hi Ben C Thank you for taking the time to write a review - and for your glowing recommendation. So happy you enjoyed staying with us and that you enjoyed the eateries in our neighbourhood. (btw - Dolci cafe, not Conti :)) Having lived in this area for over 30 years, i definitely agree with you about the friendliness in this neighbourhood typically. We always have at least 5 conversations with people in our neighbourhood park when we take our dogs for their daily walk. Look forward to your next visit :) Best from all of us at Amanzi Pam and the team

Amanzi is truly an amazing guest house and for us a real home away from home. The apartments are excellent, very well equipped and cleaned daily. Thabang and Deliwe’s freshly cooked breakfasts are legendary! Over the past year my husband has lived at Amanzi and we (the rest of

You certainly felt like extended family, and we really hope that you will continue to visit us! Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review.

An idyllic retreat in the northern suburbs of Jo'burg! My husband and I spent only a few nights at Amanzi before our safari in Botswana and Zambia. Our mistake was not staying LONGER!! The BEAUTIFUL setting, the fresh, lovingly presented breakfasts, our accommodations ( inviting

Dear Linda and Hal What a pleasure it was to meet you two, and so happy you enjoyed staying with us - thank you for kind compliments and sweet words. Hopefully there will be another time when you return to SA for another Safari. A Safari is a unique experience, and hope everything lived up to your dreams. Joburg is underestimated, and so many overseas guests wish they had stayed longer in this bustling vibrant city. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review - its so appreciated. Warm regards from all of us at Amanzi Pam and Rob

Lovely spacious room, with well equipped kitchenette and big comfy couch.
Desk and good quality chair, & view showing table and chairs on the balcony, just like in Paris!
We arrived on the same flight from the U.S. Bear in mind by the time you go through customs, get your luggage, rental car and drive to Amanzi it could be 10.00am. Pam, the owner, was extremely accommodating and our room was available when we arrived. This of course depends on how fully booked they are. Never the less, I would recommend Amanzi ... please see my review from late last year. I cannot wait to go back!

"Book somewhere else. And tell your friends too."
"There is a cottage in the garden but all rooms are equally impressive"
"We had two rooms on the first floor - they were fantastic !"
"Room 4 is very large and comfortable"
"All rooms seem quiet and well equipped. Cottages give some extra space at little extra cost."
