The Boutique Amani Safari Camp was acquired in 1990 and has been cultivated to house guests in ultimate, under stated bushveld style. The raw bush that surrounds the Camp gives it an authentic, isolated atmosphere, allowing visitors to escape the hustle and bustle of city life entirely.
In 2012, the Camp was washed away in a flood, and has been rebuilt to offer a true home away from home. Today, a dry riverbed separates the Camp from a frequently used watering hole, which lies adjacent to the extensive entertainment area and commonly attracts jackals, hyenas, warthogs and elephants.
Across the green lawn and under the large trees, the charming, beautifully furnished large house provides ample accommodation for eight guests.The fully catered Amani Safari Camp can be booked out as a single unit, or guests can book per room, as required. It offers a true, exclusive retreat into nature.
The experience is heightened by Head Chef, Simon de Kock who was born and raised in Hoedspruit, Simon has Africa in his blood and passionately prepares healthy, interesting meals that are inspired by years of international travel, experience in five star restaurants and lodges, and Michelin training. Offering private dinners, boma banquets, and meals at a table laid in the heart of the bush, every meal served is an occasion.
Daily meals include game drive snacks, a post-game drive brunch, high tea and dinner. All ingredients are locally sourced, fresh produce and all breads, rusks and biscuits are made at Amani daily.
