I think reviews will be heavily biased based on season. In season = busy, many activities, great for kids. Out of season, nature lovers paradise - peaceful. We have stayed here many times and had different experiences, but have always come back. This is my first review for Swadini, and based on my last visit a few weeks ago. Reception... More

Very nice equipped chalets. Friendly and helpful staff - we booked one chalet and when we got there we requested one closer to the pool and they were more than willing to give us another chalet. Nice, quiet, peaceful and save environment. Animals walking around, coming to visit when having a braai at night. Camping area also nicely equipped stands.... More

We love the stunning nature scenes and super exciting things to do as a family. The resort is very neat and staff kind and helpful. Birds, mokeys and little mammals are all over. The walking trails next to the river is short enough for little kids to join in the fun. The public toilets are neat and close to the... More

We've been visiting Swadini for a number of years, both as campers in the caravan park, as well as in the chalets. The silence and solitude in the chalet area still remains one of the best reasons to visit Swadini. The Drakensberg mountains keeping an eye on the resort still remains majestic. However, this is unfortunately the only good things... More

Fantastic and beautiful camp! So well situated! These people thought of everything! The ablution blocks are really stunning. The park is well maintained and staff extremely friendly. Excellent camp for families with small children as well (remember the bicycles!). Also remember to do the Blyderiver dam boat trip - so worth every cent!

We visit here often. We have never made use of the restaurants, so I cannot give any info on the food. The units are clean, well maintained, well built and in a really beautiful area. However..... Some times are better than others. We go simply for nature, surroundings, views and peace and quiet... Which brings me to my next point.....peace... More

Swadini is located in the spectacular Drakensberg of South Africas lowveld. In close vicinity of the Blyderivierspoortdam it makes for unbelievable vistas We have been visiting the resort for many years. Save for children and many attractions in the area. No real internet access though so leave the electronics home and enjoy nature at its best. Staff at reception should... More

This is one of those destinations which you continue to visit your entire life. The location is perfect, the facilities are great and there's so many different activities in the surrounding area to keep the whole family busy & entertained. We will probably continue to come here for as long as we are able to.

I have been staying on a regular basis at Swadini since 1983 and this is truly an amazing resort! Accommodation is great and the service by the friendly staff very efficient! There is just something so perfect about sitting outside your chalet and looking at "Oom Paul's Kop" and listening to the baboons chattering in the mountain - truly food... More
