Amanzi Empilo means “The water of life” in isiXhosa. The self-catering rondawel built from river rock is close to the Bell River, and boasts fantastic views of the tucked-away valley. It’s ideal for honeymooners or families that want privacy and enjoy basic accommodation. Off the grid, the bungalow operates on solar, gas, and a hot water donkey geyser.
