Wow! Can you believe we’re already half way through the year? While last year may have been quite the blur, the first half of 2021 has been super busy – just the way we like it. We’ve so enjoyed the hustle and bustle of families and friends arriving and waving goodbye with smiles stretching from ear-to-ear.


This is the holiday happiness we thrive on! With winter settling in and the fog flowing down through the crooks and crevices of the Magaliesberg, we’d like to take this opportunity to warm you up with some of the cosiest moments we have experienced over the past 6 months.


We are pleased to share that we have reintroduced our Mount Amanzi Star Awards for our staff. Every time a member of the staff team receives a compliment from a guest on Guest Revu, they receive a silver star in acknowledgement of their part in providing our guests with only the best service. Once a certain amount of stars have been reached by an individual, they are awarded a gold star and a certificate recognising their performance and the part they played in making our guests stay as wonderful as possible! Please don’t forget to submit your feedback, via GuestRevu, upon departure after your next visit!

Well, Hello there!

We’d like to take this opportunity to welcome some new staff members to the Mount Amanzing Team. We are so pleased to have each and every one of you form an integral part of the family, as you bring new skills and talents to the table. So, without further ado, please join us in giving a big Mount 'Amanzi' welcome to:

Mount Amazing Celebrations:
After the whirlwind 2020 turned out to be, we could not wait to celebrate the festive season with all our guests. On Christmas Day, the staff dressed up! ‘Santa and his elves’ paid a visit to the Resort, where the merry band proceeded to spread more of the “Christmas jolly’s” as they joined the kiddies on the jumping pillow. Every year, we encourage our guests to sing along at our onsite rendition of Carols by Candlelight and last year was no different. Each guest received a candle and a complimentary packet of sweet treats as we all gathered to sing popular carols. We also had a wonderful bring and braai, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
New Years
Valentine’s Day-

Spreading the love!

We kicked 2021 off on a lovely note – Valentine’s Day of course! We decorated the Reception area with loads of red and white balloons and heart-shaped décor. As guests checked-in, they were welcomed by a love photo booth, where they could snap pictures of themselves and their loved ones. Guests also received a heart-shaped rice crispy treat upon arrival and for dinner everyone was treated to a romantic evening at The Old Kitchen Restaurant.
Valentine’s Day
Picnic perfect I do’s
In December, we hit a solid six when we hosted a pitch-perfect picnic wedding for South African cricketer, Yolani Fourie, and new hubby, Kurt. We utilised our perfectly manicured, green lawns to the fullest as we setup the happy couple’s reception. After Yolani and Kurt recited their vows and said their “I do’s”, the newlyweds made their way to our picnic setup. With a very relaxed atmosphere, both the bridal couple and guests could sit back, relax and enjoy the day’s festivities.
New Years
Build the team, maintain the dream
During December, we had the pleasure of hosting mining conglomerate, Impala Platinum, for several days of teambuilding and connecting. The event was themed ‘bush-and-beach’ and amongst a host of thrilling and fun activities; we also had traditional African dancers to provide entertainment, a “shebeen”-themed evening and interactive drumming, organised by Drums and Rhythm. This awesome teambuilding event was a great success and the Impala Platinum team had a blast!
Valentine’s Day
Easter at Mount Amanzi was simply spectacular! We celebrated the long weekend with classic foodie specials at The Old Kitchen Restaurant as well as a family-friendly Easter lunch. The kiddies were entertained by our visiting petting zoo: a combination of furry and feathered friends visited the Resort, including ducks, ponies, chinchillas and many more! And of course, the day would not have been complete without the surprise arrival of the Easter Bunny! It’ safe to say the long weekend was a great success with lots of chocolatey-smeared faces with the biggest smiles!
New Years
Mother's Day
Mother’s Day at Mount Amanzi was a great success! Our Reception area was decorated with colourful balloons and a huge ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ sign. The balloons, much like a Mom’s love – keep us afloat and add colour and happiness to our lives. At The Old Kitchen, we hosted a moreish breakfast for Mom. On the menu we had an array of brekkie favourites that really hit the spot. Assorted Danishes, cold meats, eggs, bacon and so many more delicious eats were spread across the tables at The Old Kitchen. Needless to say, all our munching Moms enjoyed the yummy spoils!

Multi Court
The Old Kitchen Restaurant has been revamped to look the fairest of them all.

The tables at The Old Kitchen have been resprayed with a fresh coat of colour.

The Mini Market is known for the tantalising smell of freshly baked bread wafting out and making its way through the Resort. Now you can expect even more delicious smells wafting through the air, as we’re offering an array of freshly baked goods, ideal for a light snack as you head to the pool.
Multi Court
We have begun refurbishments at our much loved Moepel Camp. The first 10 out of 34 units are busy being renovated, as we speak. We are removing the wooden staircases from the units. These staircases will be rebuilt with a sturdier foundation in the form of bricks and will be finished off with plaster tile work. Furthermore, the free-standing cupboard found under the staircase is also being renovated and we are also busy updating 18 Moepel units' patio roofs, by re-enforcing the structures and replacing the RBI sink with Harvey tiles.
Please do not Feed the Monkeys

We would like to urge all our valued Shareholders to refrain from offering the monkeys, or any other wildlife,
snacks or food of any sort.

The monkeys are wild; to ensure their health and safety it is best for them to forage for their own food. Feeding them creates a dependency on humans and can cause the monkeys to become a nuisance.

Please help us in creating a harmonious environment for all guests and wildlife, by refraining from feeding the monkeys and allowing them to live their natural lives, as is intended. We thank you for your cooperation in this regard.

African Blessings

Jochebed Children's Village is the heart of African Blessings and the vision upon which the charity organisation was founded. Jochebed comprises of 16 cottages (of which two are currently complete, furnished and occupied) set on the African Blessings Farm. Rather than operate in the mannerisms of the traditional orphanage, each child is placed with a loving family and will grow to reach their full potential within a functional household on the property. There is a well-known African proverb that says "It takes a village to raise a child". It certainly rings true and we believe that the entire African Blessings Farm community and all living here are responsible for shaping and positively influencing the lives of the children; educating and raising them to be leaders.
This is only the start of our vision – help us reach our dreams of offering this safe haven to more children in need.
