“African Ambiance at Its Best!”
Reviewed 22 May 2016

When I arrived at Amanzi Lodge I was taken on a tour of the accommodation. 17 Rooms each decorated according a country in Africa. Well done with this stunning lodge on the edge of Harare. All you can think off and great service! We had dinner at Amanzi Restaurant and this was as good! Well done!

Room Tip: Great African Ambiance with lovely gardens, pool and gym & spa

If you come to Harare, why stay in a Holiday Inn or the like, hotels which are the same all over the world. Amanzi has great lodges, super food and service and most importantly it is a wonderful African experience. The lodges are comfortable and you will sleep like a log in the huge beds. You can sit outside and use the excellent wifi.n it is a little bit outside of town which means you need a driver or to hire a car. However the distance from the centre means it is quiet with wonderful fresh air and with the sounds and smells of Africa. A great place.

I've stayed at the Amanzi Lodge twice and found it absolutely amazing! All of the staff are very friends and remembered me one year later, on my second trip. I didn't have a long stay, but they made it very worthwhile for my long journey. I felt very safe, and well looked-after during my stay. They helped me book a last-minute trip to Wild is Life Wildlife Sanctuary for my free evening.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have a different theme. Check their website for your amazing choices.

Amanzi Lodge is one of favorite boutique hotels, in Zimbabwe and beyond. The rooms are exquisitely decorated and super clean. The spa is wonderful. The garden is impeccable. The staff makes you feel right at home. The ambiance is great. The restaurant is ok, not quite as wow as Amanzi Restaurant but definitely not bad at all. I would highly recommend this place, it's an unforgettable experience!

Amanzi was everything I could want for a romantic get away and more. The decor was beautiful and tasteful. The food was delicious. The staff were amazingly helpful and provided fantastic customer service. Although the lodge is a bit pricey, it was worth every bit for the comfort provided.
