To start with I will point out there are 2 sides to the Amani Lodge: 1) The lodge itself, which functions as a B&B and 2) The Big Cat experience. Most reviews of Amani are old, so this reflects the recent state of the lodge and is about the lodge itself. This lodge is on the expensive side and when...

I had limited time to go on any real safari which require a minimum of three days. After consulting locals the big sanctuary at Amani lodge was short listed. It is about an hour drive out of Windhoek and at an elevated spot, costs around US$100. The high points are feeding and closely watching leopards, cheetahs and lions. The drive...

30-40 minute trek out of Windhoek onto remote hill top. No true game around, but dining room has a glass wall into the cheetah pen which is amazing. Our family room was nice, spacious, with a lovely deck. Landscaping and pool area is lovely. Wild horses, warthogs, and a feral cat wander the property. The big cat experience is a...

Stayed here for 1 night at the end of a 2 week trip in Namibia and was one of the highlights of the holiday. Despite reservations regarding the 'big cat experience', for which there is an additional charge, this was very well done and the owners are very upfront in what they are trying to achieve. These animals are held...

The setting is lovely, and the male lion's roars in the evening add a lot to the atmosphere. Service is spotty and communication with staff can be difficult. There is no literature in the rooms, or anywhere, to tell you what activities are available - you must ask, and even then the information is minimal. Food was fine, well presented,...

We had been 2 years ago at the amani lodge. The lodge himself is very beautiful, the food fabulous and the owner and his son are extraordinary people. Unfortunately some money was stolen out of our room which was closed. Later we read that this happend to other people as well. We found it a bit disappointing that inspite of...

We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay at Amani Lodge. This family run business specialises in rehabilitating animals with a long term view to reintroducing them back into the wild. This is a delicate topic as some places like this can be glorified zoos, but at Amani they have got it just right in my opinion. Located about 20...

As a consultant at a local tour operator I was invited along with another colleague for a night at Amani Lodge, just outside Windhoek. Instead of leading you through my varying emotions during the short stay, I think it would be more useful to express my eventual satisfaction with an enjoyable nights stay. The activities are based on big cats,...

“All the cabins face the same way so no real advantage to any. Pick one closer to the main building for convenience.”
