I love the freedom of driving around a small park and seeing Rhino, elephants and antelope and zebra up close. Even though the lions are in a separate enclosure, the thrill of the surprise encounter with them and their cubs is an experience I enjoy every time! I love to unwind at Hlane and to sit and watch the elephants... More

Getting through the boarder was a... More

If you look for serenity and communion with nature, there is no better place than Hlane Royal National Park, and more particularly the Ndlovu Camp. The camp counts a few villas spread under old acacia and other indigenous trees, giving it constant shade, where nyalas and other antelopes walk and feed freely. The camp faces a pond where giraffes, hippos,... More

I visited the park and stayed in a self catering hut in Ndlovu camp. The hut in the camp was well maintained and comfortable. There is no electricity and the staff come around at dusk to light lamps in the huts. Staff was friendly and helpful during our stay. We had lunch in the restaurant opposite the watering hole and...

We visited Hlane Royal National Park with friends for breakfast in the restaurant that overlooks the waterhole near the entrance to the Park. The service was good, the food was tasty and the view of the animals and birds coming down to drink was a treat

A must for nature lovers!!!! We stayed at the Ndlovu Camp for 2 nights. What a lovely and quiet camp. The staff is excellent! No electricity!! Just what we needed. The restaurant has a lovely view on a waterhole. Hippos and some crocodiles. Rhinos came to visit. Also a must stay for 2 nights.

More than attraction it should be in accommodation.... Hlane National Park is very small, too small, just a couple of km... you can´t compare with South Africa national parks (Kruger, Hluhluwe-Imfolozi...). True, the entrance fee is cheap (3 €). Hlane is basicly a great camp, with a waterhole full of rhinos. So many, so close. And also a couple of... More

Hlane national park is a wonderful must see visit when in Swaziland. I stayed two nights with family and it was a great experience. Some of us stayed in rondavel circular huts with bathroom en suite. My friends stayed in a house which had kitchen facilities including fridge and outdoor cooking for brai. The nugget of this experience is no... More
