Very warm welcome with sherry on arrival. Family room was two bedrooms with a shared bathroom. Main room a little small for large suitcases, but comfortable and nicely decorated. Facilities were nice. A great breakfast included (far more food that we could eat). Not much to choose from for eating out in Hluhluwe, but we just stayed overnight in transit.... More

We had a lovely stay at Amazulu Guest House. Friendly and helpful staff and delicious breakfast! Very near Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park which was a wonderful experience with lots of wildlife. We would certainly visit again.

This is a great location from which to explore the nearby Hluhluwe game reserve. It's decor is an interesting mix of African/contemporary which works and the rooms are comfortable. Own transport is a must but then you'll probably not be in the area without this.

We stayed at the Ama Zulu Guesthouse for 2 nights. The property is beautifully maintained and very tastefully decorated. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We headed to the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Reservation for 6am on our first morning and the owners had picnic baskets and hot coffee ready for us to go! The next morning we had breakfast at the... More

Well done to Llewelyn and team, they gave us both service and privacy. Exactly what we wanted. If I could make just one comment it would be about the water pressure especially in the Nyala room. Thanks for providing us with the space to relax in each others company. Sorry about the noise

We had a beautiful stay at the Ama Zulu Guesthouse!! At the very end of the street at the edge of Hluhluwe you’ll find a beautiful garden, an inviting porch with grill and all you need to prepare your own dinner. The breakfast was prepared at our wishes, and one morning, when we were heading into the parks, Liz got... More

My stay at the amazulu was a last minute decision and the booking for myself and 2 friends were done in the morning. When we arrived in Hluhluwe we did have a little trouble finding the place so arriving in daylight would have been preferable. The guest house is fantastic the rooms lived up to all expecktations they are nice... More

Lovely guesthouse situated away but not too far from the busier Hluhluwe CBD. Excellent 4 star facilities and privacy. Rooms immaculate with all the bells and whistles needed. Quaint touches and finishes to remind you of your younger days.
