"We've always dreamed of a farm in Africa - a remote weekend hide-away where our children could roam as free as the antelope; where we could experience the joy of a pristine wilderness with the luxury of comfortable accommodation. And then we found Amathunzi. A place to share with friends and family, and those who seek the same..." Jobre Stassen, Owner
