Festive Season

Our guests checking in for the festive season were welcomed by a captivating display of delectable treats and refreshing drinks. Wooden Christmas trees were handed out as gifts. On Christmas Day a special Christmas service were held followed by a lunch buffet at the Restaurant.

The festive spirit continued into the New Year's Eve celebrations, where we hosted a Hawaiian-themed spit braai party. 

Our Entertainment Team kept everyone in high spirits with a variety of games and activities, guaranteeing endless fun throughout the holiday season.


Valentine’s Day

With a sprinkling of pink and white hearts and balloons, the Reception was transformed to welcome guests with an outpouring of love. Upon check-in, they were greeted with heart-shaped cookies and drinks to quench their thirst. A Valentine’s photo booth was set up, inviting all to capture memories and create treasured mementos. The Restaurant hosted a romantic dinner and guests enjoyed their evening and meals prepared by our dedicated kitchen staff.


Easter Weekend

Our guests had an egg-citing Easter weekend at Mount Amanzi. As they arrived, they were welcomed with open arms by our dynamic duo of John, the mascot, and the ever-energetic Easter bunny, and also got to enjoy some Easter-themed treats. Saturday was a day filled with outdoor family fun hosted by the Entertainment Team. The highlight of the day was the Easter egg hunt that had the children's hearts racing with joy. The entire Resort became a playground of hidden treasures, with little ones eagerly searching high and low. As night fell on Saturday, families gathered together on the soccer field and enjoyed an Easter movie night snuggled up under a starry sky. Sunday brought a whole new level of enjoyment with a wide array of games and activities for families to partake in. The Resort was alive with laughter and excitement as guests participated in friendly competitions such as the ever-popular Minute-To-Win-It games, the Amazing Race, and Movie Trivia.


Mother's Day

Mother’s Day at Mount Amanzi was a resounding success! We organised some fun games and arts and crafts activities for the moms and their kids, along with a special movie exclusively for the moms. At The Old Kitchen, we hosted a Mother’s Day lunch buffet where our moms indulged in a feast of delicious eats and flavours.


School Holidays

What a blast the Mount Amanzi families had during the March school holidays! Every holiday is filled to the brim with exciting activities and this holiday season was no different. Along with all the fun activities that our guests love, the Entertainment Team added an exciting new activity to our holiday programme called "Rock the Boat." They painted two old bathtubs and everyone took turns to get in and race in the swimming pool. The winner of each race got to write their name on the bathtub they raced in. Our marshmallow braais were also a hit and our beloved mascot, John, was always there, ensuring that fun and laughter were in abundance at every corner of the Resort.



Jack Seloba, our talented Sales Marketer, is head of our conference, weddings, and private events Team. Jack and his team have been truly blessed with a successful season so far; to book your event at Mount Amanzi get in touch.
