10/10 Exceptional

Lovely deluxe tent with a spectacular view. No luck tho and staff was unseen for the entire stay. Pool was very dirty and restaurant was close. The tent was great tho and we loved the area.

A perfect getaway!
My family of three (wife, two year old daughter and myself) travelled to Hoedspruit for a weekend away. We stayed in the family cottage and were very impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage and the property. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, with our cottage cleaned on the second day, without having to ask. The property has great views on offer, but also has amazing cycads, which we enjoyed looking at on a walk around the property. The pool is perfect and again offers that real feeling of peacefulness, while you cool off from the higher temperatures. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

8/10 Very good

We enjoyed our stay at Amafu very much, it is a very relaxing environment with a spectacular view, the staff are very friendly and the food is very tasty indeed. However we just found the luxury tents needing a little extra cleaning and maintenance.

The view from the chalets is absolutely amazing! Was only there for 1 night but really wish we could have stayed longer!

Great food, nice scenery and overall a great experience. Two small issues we had included no wifi in the chalet and the pool was green and had frogs swimming around for a couple days which meant we couldn't go for a dip.

Tenda super agradavel e com uma vista espetacular
A regiao do hotel tem uma vista muito bonita para a savana e as reservas na regiao. Ha uma piscina ao lado do bar/restaurante e alguns quartos tem piscina tambem. Eu estive na barraca do hotel (tenda), muito confortavel, com camas, ar condicionado, banheiro e uma pequena cozinha. Cama excelente assim como as tolhas e roupa de cama. O jantar no hotel estava muito bom, tudo preparado na hora por um staff simpatico. O bar funciona self-service onde voce escolhe, pega e anota seu consumo para pagamento no final. Ficamos sem energia por 3 horas, mas esse é um problema constante em toda Precisa de carro para chegar nele, nao sei se ha transportes publicos que cheguem nele.
