We really enjoyed our two nights here. Rooms 5 and 4 have views over the river. The rest are disappointing. It's not 5* in terms of cleanliness and equipment but location makes up for it. Could be noisy if viewing deck busy next to room. Would not go If there was a conference. Booking in and out of mpila without... More

We refer to our recent visit to Hluhluwe and Umfolozi game reserve and more specifically Nselweni bush lodge. We offer a feed back on this visit.: Firstly my wife and I are very very proudly South African and require no second invitation to visit our Wildlife Parks and it was with this in mind we decided to visit Hluhluwe/Umfolozi.

Nselweni is a great place to visit if you get the right camp number. it is very quiet and far from the main roads. the view of the imfolozi river is great, every afternoon you can watch the buffalo and small buck come down to drink. once night is settled your bound to have the local bush pigs and hyena...

Beautiful setting right next to the river. There are 8 x 2 sleeper tented chalets all self contained. Very pleasantly decorated with an obvious African theme. Nice & clean Large verandah with seating for 3 people with a braai close at hand. Large bedroom with 2 x 3/4 size beds which are pushed together making a massive king size bed.... More

Nselweni is the only bush camp where you can book an individual 2sleeper unit and you don't have to book the whole camp. On advice we left durban early to maximise our chances of getting unit 4. This has a nice view, but we discovered a negative the next morning as a group of parks board employees were having a... More

Stayed here for one night with a friend at the beginning of May. We had tent 4 and I am very glad we did because apart from 5 which has the best view of the river, the rest are a dead loss, looking straight into the bushes. It wasn´t really a tent, it had proper walls, only the roof was... More

This is an absolute Gem! Staff were super friendly - collecting your bags from the car. Dont forget you need to register at Mpila camp. Definately worht more than the 1 night we had. A true bush experience. Facilities are amazing and the whole little place is very well designed. If you want some isolation deep in the African Bush... More

This was the second time we've stayed in Hluhluwe/Imfolozi. The first time we stayed three nights in a chalet at Hilltop Camp and three in a safari tent at Mpila. This time Hilltop was booked out for the dates we wanted so we thought we'd give Nselweni a try for two nights and then go onto Mpila for four. We'd... More

Myself, mom and my soon to be 12 year old spent 2 nights there. It was truly an amazing experience! The only thing missing which I didn't have was a good bottle of red wine. We were booked into number 4 which has river views. The time we spent out on the porch/verandah during the afternoon, we were spoilt with... More

Our stay at Nselweni was absolutely stunning. It's set in such a beautiful part of the park and the game viewing on offer is excellent. Our chalet overlooked the incredible Black Imfolozi river and from our seats on the patio, we saw a wide variety of game (morning, afternoon and evening) simply getting on with their daily lives. We then... More
