we stayed at this lodge for two nights. The rooms are very basic but the surroundings are very beautiful, we even got to see seven giraffes walking by the pineapplefields. The rooms are very basic, but the AC worked fine, the mattress on the bed needed to be replaced, bathroom also very basic. But it was a wonderful place to... More

I didn't know what to expect after reading some reviews on tripadvisor, but what a great time we've had. We got a very warm welcome with a drink a some fresh pineapple from the area. The lodge itself is a little bit outdated but it is clean and rooms are basic and ok. You can relax at the pool if... More

We were travelling as a partly of three, wanting self catering facilities. Ezulwini seemed a good choice because we could book two self catering chalets at a modest price, with the bonus of having their game reserve to walk in. When we arrived they offered us accommodation in the a very large family unit instead, at no additional cost, which... More

On paper it looks great. A lodge with own game, a pool and restaurant. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. The people were friendly but it didn’t really fell sincere. The owner (I think she was) would always smile when she saw us but within a minute she would have a quite unfriendly conversation with the staff (which we could... More

Our biggest problem was that you didn't feel welcome there. The houses are beautiful as wel as the surrounding. But dinertime started at 19.00 our and at 20.00 our the lights were out, and they gave us the key to close the door of the tv room and the left! Bar closed. We saw a jeep for gamedriving but couldnt... More

The houses were ok. Although they could be cleaner. I thought it was way to dark in there. Swimming pool was dirty. Food was ok. Don't eat there 2 nights in a row, you'll get exactly the same. Breakfast was not that good either. Ok but compared to other lodges not good at all. People are friendly. The gate opens... More

Really enjoyable few days spent in this comfortable and hospitable lodge set on private gameland. Food was very good, extensive menu, scrumptious breaksfasts and typical friendly South African hospitality ensured a great stay. Rooms were comfortable with mosquito nets, aircon, room service. A short walk to the pool and braai area, and a few minutes stroll to watch giraffe, zebra... More

We stayed at Ezulwini as part of a tour group. Perhaps we were just in a basic room but our room was a bit average. Tiny bathroom, twin beds instead of a double and paper thin walls - we could hear our neighbours tinkle on the toilet. However it was fine and a place to sleep. It sounds like there... More
