Many of their previous guests always point out the unique architecture of the palace as well as its incredible décor. It’s the first that immediately charms the senses as you arrive and get ushered into its spacious, private luxury rooms with amazing views.

Accommodation at Ammazulu African Palace

The Palace is really a place out of a fairy-tale. Choose between the President, Deluxe, Executive and Junior Suites.

If you opt for the Presidential Suite, you get astounding views overlooking the Kloof Gorge and Krantzkloof Nature Reserve. The suite has its own private sweeping balcony and lounge area. One thing you will immediately notice are original African artworks and beaded panels extending even into the large en-suite bathroom.

The Deluxe Suites and the Executive Suites do come with a similar offering, however, in the Executive Suites, instead of a balcony, you get a private spacious veranda where you can relax and unwind either with a favourite book or your favourite drink.

Designed for those travelling on a budget, the Junior Suites offer smaller living space. In one, you will find a King-size bed and in the other a unique antique 4-poster Queen-size bed. There is no lounge area, but a large en-suite bathroom and a private veranda. 

Whatever your choice of stay, expect luxury amenities such as soft towels, crisp fragranced white linen, super King-size beds, DStv, tea/coffee facilities and a small bar fridge (beverages stocked on request).

Reviews from previous Ammazulu guests

“The architect and the design of this place is truly amazing. All the artwork, all the designs on display make this a beautiful place to visit. So much to African art on display to look at and enjoy. Lovely place to stay, so peaceful and relaxing with amazing views,” wrote Marlaine Grout Andersen on their Facebook page.

Stavros Anthias added; “This unconventional, eclectic palace never ceases to amaze, in the true sense of the word. There are treasures aplenty in many nooks and crannies. It is a riot of colour, and a vibrant and pleasing assault on the senses. We will certainly be back. We enjoyed tea and scones, but this was by prior arrangement.”

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
