About Amathunzi Private Nature Reserve

A pristine 3000-hectare nature reserve near Robertson, Amathunzi offers expansive vistas of rolling hills and valleys covered in Karoo fynbos, backdropped with majestic mountains Ė a place of untrammeled peace and privacy.

Less than 2 hours from Cape Town, but light years from the big city, Amathunzi offers that wonderful combination: the exhilaration of being immersed in untouched nature, and the sensual pleasure of relaxing into the luxuries that matter - well-sprung beds and soft linen; a deliciously cool pool; a well-equipped kitchen where someone else does the dishes; a shower with a view. A place to reconnect and rejuvenate. We look forward to welcoming you.

Accommodation

Choose between three separate lodging options, each privately located.

The Lodge
The main lakeside lodge comprises a convivial central living and entertainment area under thatch, and surrounded by expansive decks. Ideal for groups or individuals that appreciate their privacy, the five en-suite chalets are totally separate, each with own entrance, stoep and wood-burning fireplace, and furnished with king-size bed under thatch. There is a private pool for cooling off in and an enclosed boma for entertaining under the stars. The lodge can be booked as a self-catered or fully-catered break.

The Manor House
Located a short driving distance from the lodge, the manor house is ideal for a close-knit group of friends or two families, with generous living spaces, two separate accommodation wings (total 6 bedrooms, 4 en-suite) and breathtaking views. The huge stone-clad pool and deep shaded verandah with large barbecue encapsulates the sense of generosity that pervades the house.

The Cottage
The compact one-bedroom cottage sleeps 2, or can be utilized by a small family. There is an outdoor barbecue.

Private Functions

Amathunzi is the ideal venue for special birthday celebrations, family reunions and a getaway to reunite old friends. You can hire just the lodge (sleeps 10) or the manor (sleeps 12), or hire the entire reserve (sleeps 24); we can also make accommodation recommendations in the nearby surrounds should your function require. Amathunziís kitchens and dining rooms are well equipped for large-scale entertaining.

Business Seminars

Amathunziís peace and space is ideal for brainstorming and we have successfully hosted small conferences and workshops.

Activities on Site

Game viewing
Species include eland, gemsbok, red hartebeest, kudu, black wildebeest, springbok, bontebok, zebra and more elusive creatures such as the aardvark and Cape Mountain leopard. Sundowner drives can be booked on the Amathunzi open-topped game viewing vehicle.

Birding
Birdwatchers will be well rewarded, given the abundance of water on the property. Species observed include the Black Harrier, Pale Chanting Goshawk, Malachite Sunbird and various owls.

Mountain biking
The best way to explore the reserve is biking along the extensive network of jeep tracks; we provide some mountain bikes, but guests are welcome to bring their own.

Hiking trails
Guided nature walks or self-guided walks, ranging from leisurely strolls to more challenging mountain hikes.

Star gazing
The cloudless nights provide a brilliant night sky for all enthusiasts.
