Host Review Score

Alta du Plooy
Ammazulu is the final piece of Peter Amm's childhood dream. He once dreamt of a special place where he could showcase his most priced collection and now Ammazulu can boast with all his glory. The building and its interior is one of a kind and is a destination on its own.
I manage Ammazulu first hand. Communicating with my guests is very important. As I grew up in the area and I love our local surroundings and I am able to give my guest suggestions on what to do in the area. I have been in the industry for 24 years and I take pride in every that I do. My mission in life is to make people feel comfortable around me and this way my guests feel welcome and keep returning.
