African Ambience is designed to provide accommodation with comfort, space and privacy you would not expect from a four star graded establishment. The guesthouse is set in a lush tropical garden in St. Lucia inside a Natural World Heritage Site, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

African Ambience Guest House is surrounded by tranquil Koi ponds and water-features, creating the ideal ambience for total relaxation whether in or outdoors. The thatched "home away from home" has three very spacious, comfortable luxury rooms, and a honeymoon suite. These African-inspired rooms are decorated in natural colours, with private entrance, patio, garden view, safe and fridge.

There are two standard double rooms and a family room on the first floor. These two standard double rooms are ideally for a single person or 2 sharing for a short stay.

All rooms are en suite, air-conditioned and have hospitality trays. We also offer a laundry service.

Breakfast is served at leisure in the dining room or on the patio overlooking the rock pool. Delight in spotting antelope, squirrels, monkeys and birds in your immediate surroundings. Dinners are catered for on request although there are numerous restaurants in the village within safe walking distance. Your hosts are dedicated to make your stay an unforgettable one.

After participating in the many activities in the area you can be sure to find peace and tranquillity at the private bar on the premises to quench your thirst and discuss the adventures of the day with fellow guests.

The sparkling pool with barbecue facilities as well as the numerous Koi ponds set in tropical gardens makes African Ambience Guest House a luxury for the selected few. After sunset the ambience of the outdoor pool, garden, water features and thatched complex all blend as it is transformed with landscaped lighting. Your hosts, Hennie and Ilze are on hand to help you plan excursions in the area.
