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 – 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.


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.

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.

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.

Hi Louise Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for hosting us at Amathunzi for Kevin’s 60th and for going the extra mile in terms of booking us in an additional night and being flexible about guests. We all had the most fantastic time game viewing, mountain biking, hikes, feeding and drinking at our watering holes! It was amazing adventure and a memory that we will cherish forever. Thanks to the staff who were always pleased to see us despite our late night parties. They carried out their work so diligently. Wishing you, your family and all the Amathunzi team a very happy Christmas and prosperous 2012. The Langleys
