Ama Zulu Guesthouse is a convenient base for exploring the Hluhluwe and Isimangaliso parks in Kwazulu Natal. The hosts were very welcoming, even offering us complementary sherry on arrival (very much appreciated after a long day's drive)! We stayed in the family suite, which had everything we needed: comfortable double beds, a clean bathroom with an excellent shower, and a...

Close to all amenities and local shops. A short 20 minute drive to Umfolozi Hluhluwe National Park where the big 5 can be seen. Also 45 minutes drive to St.Lucia where hippo and crocodile boat charters can be arranged.

The suite was very clean, modern, confortable and well-equipped. The owner Llewelyn was always happy to help and gave us many good tips. The lodge is well located, about 15min driving from the Hluhluwe-imfolozi National Park and about one hour driving from the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. And if you want, you can relax by the pool after your safari !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in every respect. Location - service - friendliness - we felt very private like in our own home. We would recommend this guesthouse any time. When we wanted to enjoy a braie by the pool, the owners even provided all the food and heated the grill, so we only had to eat and have a...

Well received by the owner who took care to see we had everything we needed. A welcome dip in the pool after a hot day of driving was much needed. A comfortable and quiet establishment set in a secluded residential suburb with offstreet secure parking. The breakfast was well laid out with good service, can recommend.

We arrived after 7pm after a long day in the Game Reserve and were welcomed by the friendly owner with a glass of Sherry and shown to our stunning Suites. Everything stunning!! Breakfast was delicious, well presented and we would highly recommend.

I have enjoyed my stay at the Amazulu guest house . they have friendly staff and the owners were very helpful. I didn't know much about the area, but got help from the guest house and they also phoned to make arrangement on my behalf. Won't mind to book at the same guest house again should a need arise.
