About Amani Guest Lodge
Amani Guest Lodge, tucked away within the tree-lined suburb of Walmer, Port Elizabeth, is a welcoming retreat for those seeking the best of city living, combined with the warmth and comfort of a true African lodge.
“Amani” is a Swahili word that means ‘place of peace’, carefully chosen to represent the sheer luxury and relaxation of this sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city living.
The African cultures are known for their warmth and hospitality. Amani Guest Lodge is dedicated to maintaining this important theme, treating each guest to a unique, indulgent experience during their time in the Friendly City, as Port Elizabeth is affectionately known.
Our sophisticated décor, attention to detail and graceful gardens all play their part in ensuring that our guests are pampered and relaxed at Amani Guest Lodge. In addition, Walmer is centrally located. Amani Guest Lodge is, therefore, within a few minutes’ drive of the airport, major shopping centres, doctors, hospitals and even the beautiful beaches for which the Eastern Cape is known and loved.
Amani Guest Lodge is situated within a few minutes’ drive from the Port Elizabeth Airport. However, being completely out of the flight path, there is no noise disturbance from the jets overhead. This close proximity is particularly convenient to travellers coming to Port Elizabeth to learn to fly at the Algoa Club Flying Club. Those aspiring to get their PPL (Private Pilot’s Licence) will enjoy the serene surrounds of the lodge coupled with it warm ambience and convenient location.

Amani Guest Lodge was opened in 2006 in response to a need for luxurious, authentically African accommodation within the heart of Port Elizabeth, Nelson Mandela Bay. More than simply providing holiday and corporate accommodation, we wanted to create an experience that combined the rustic, elegant feel of colonial Africa with modern amenities, facilities and conveniences.
Today, Amani Guest Lodge continues to evolve, constantly striving to improve the experience of our guests. Our staff members share the passion, which radiates through every aspect of the lodge, making for a comfortable, efficient retreat for our valued customers.
Amani Guest Lodge is a member of PEMMBA.
