Ama Amanzi is an authentic African game lodge. We have bought a piece of untouched African bush veld in the middle of the UNESCO world heritage site within the Waterberg Biosphere. In co-operation with the indigenous people we built a couple of lodges, a luxury Safari Tent camp and a Farm House. In addition, a Main Lodge was built inclusive of a lounge, several terraces and a braai (African Barbeque) site.​

Alongside the accommodation at the Main Lodge you will find a custom built nature pool. A large swimming pool in a natural setting where you can relax, take a drink or just take a refreshing dive in to the water to cool off after time spent in the African sun. There is also a stunning Lounge situated in the middle of the bush for that true African ambiance.​

This has all been achieved whilst preserving the majority of the natural environment intact and concurrently providing a high level of comfort that you, as our guests, would expect​.

Ant’s Hill is hosted by wonderful staff that creates an open and friendly atmosphere. Built by Ant and Tessa on the edge of a cliff, this bush home offers breath-taking views across the Waterberg. With spacious rooms and vast folding doors, the thatched lodge blends into the bush while the exotic furniture and brightly coloured African fabrics make it both sophisticated and comfortable.

The draped four-poster beds are seven foot wide and each bathroom is spectacular, offering guests sunken baths and waterfall showers. Set in boulders on the edge of the cliff, the swimming pool cascades over the lip of the gorge (also heated), inducing you to relax there for hours. Ant’s Hill caters for a maximum of 12 guests and is booked on a non-exclusive basis; however, should you wish to book the lodge on an exclusive basis this can be done.

Ant’s Hill offer the opportunity for some of the greatest game viewing in the African bush – from horseback. You can canter along open sandy tracks or transverse high ridges with spectacular vistas. The pace can be as fast or relaxed as the rider would like. When you come across game you can often get so close the experience is unforgettable.

We have fit, reliable and responsive horses, providing a choice for both the professional rider and the absolute beginner (you do not need to have riding experience to ride with us). The herd of 70 horses is made up of big thoroughbreds and Arab-boerperd crosses and includes some fabulous children’s ponies. We use comfortable Maclelan saddles and have English saddles available. Rides are led by two competent guides and the emphasis is on safety at all times. We therefore advise all guests to wear protective head gear whilst out riding. For the enthusiastic rider, you may wish to ride twice daily and turn your trip into a luxury riding safari, alternatively for the less eager; riding can be one of the many activities you can enjoy. Many guests learn to ride here. It is compulsory for all clients to wear head protection gear whilst riding. Should clients not have their own riding hats to bring with them, we do have a selection of various sizes at both lodges

Guided bush walks:
For those who prefer walking, our guides will guide you through the bushveld on foot. These walks are informative and interactive, enabling guests to gain knowledge of the flora, fauna and animals resident on the reserves. Learning to recognize tracks is great fun. Whilst these walks can be in the form of a gentle stroll, the more energetic can hike over the plains and down impressive gorges.

Game drives:
Our guides will be available to take you out in an open 4x4 Landcruiser either for a morning or afternoon game drive or using a spotlight at night to find elusive nocturnal animals, such as the rare brown hyena, aardvark and porcupine.

Children:
Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill will give your children a life-changing experience. Special activities are laid on for children and teenagers who enjoy getting involved in the running of a game reserve. Children of all ages can join their parents on all activities or can alternatively be taken out separately. Toys and games are available to keep young ones occupied between activities and the lawned gardens surrounding both bush homes create a safe haven for them to play in. Special food and meal times can be arranged and children are welcome to come to supper in their dressing gowns. While the variety of activities keep all well entertained you will all learn a great deal about wildlife and gain inspiration to last you a lifetime. It’s quite educational, riding lessons are also available for the novice rider. Many children learn to ride and how to appreciate the environment here.

Other activities:

Vaalwater South Africa

Vaalwater  Accommodation

The little Bushveld town of Vaalwater is set on the southern border of the Waterberg Biosphere, a UNESCO Reserve of considerable beauty and biodiversity – and home to the Big Five. It serves as a gateway into the Waterberg, providing travellers with essential services including banking, groceries, petrol and diesel, a post office, and doctors.

For travellers en route to Botswana it’s an essential pit stop, offering a number of small cafes, restaurants and craft shops. Just outside Vaalwater on the road to Melkrivier is the Church of St John the Baptist, a quaint thatched church designed by renowned architect Sir Herbert Baker. Also of interest are visits to several herb farms. Popular self-drive routes in the Waterberg centre around Lephalale and the route from Thabazimbi to Alldays.
