About Amafu Forest Lodge

Nestled on the lush green forest slopes of the Mariepskop mountain are the chalets of Amafu Forest Lodge. These five beautiful, fully furnished and self-catering thatched chalets offer true home-style accommodation without distracting from the experience of staying in the African bush.

Amafu Forest Lodge is the perfect base from which to explore the world-renowned natural beauty of Limpopo and Mpumalanga. Situated on the outskirts of the small village of Kampersrus, a mere 28 km from Hoedspruit, Amafu is a short drive to many of the area’s splendours such as the Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon. The team at Amafu can assist you with all your holiday requirements and touring arrangements, self-drive or guided.

Privately owned and managed, Amafu prides itself on warm hospitality, friendly service and flexibility, with tailor-made packages to suit anyone's needs.

                                      We enjoyed our stay at Amafu Forest Lodge very much! The setting and mountain views are incredible and it's beautiful everywhere you look. The staff were very helpful and we could feel so at home and relaxed at all times. Would definitely visit again. One recommendation I could make is to put a mirror in the Ferox room.

                                      It was my first camping experience and it was a good one. The service the staff gave us was excellent and the rooms we stayed in was decorated nicely and comfortable.

                                      I loved waking up in the morning and admiring the view of the beautiful mountain. The hospitality was good and the owner was very kind. The bedroom was spacious and the beds was big and comfortable. It is also nicely furnished. I would go back anytime and already have recommend it to some of my friends.

                                      We had such a wonderful stay at Amafu in Ituri luxury tent. Amazing view and we could hear the lions roaring at night. The room is beautiful, neat and very clean. The owner Steve made us feel so welcome and we received 5 star treatment from him and his staff. We will definitely stay at Amafu again! 5 Star rating from us

                                      We only stayed for one night but I wish it could have been longer. The host was friendly yet professional and made our stay a pleasure. The lodge is well-kept and very pretty, and the pool was a welcome reprieve from the heat. Highly recommended!
