Amanzi deserves ratings beyond just 'excellent'. One of the most memorable guest houses I have ever stayed at. The apartments are breathtaking, immaculately clean, and beyond anything you could imagine you might need at a B&B. Super spacious, fiber optic wifi in every apartment, decor is chic and fresh, there are big desks to comfortably work at and it's quiet...

Thank you both very much for your review - Rob and I have just got back from Vancouver where we were so impressed by Canada's "green" focus and cleanliness of an amazingly forested city - I know that Joburg has the largest man made forest in the world (apparently) but we so loved Vancouver's forests.
