As with many who have visited the Ezulwini Game Lodges, my wife and I purchased the package at a charity. We convinced two other couples to join us and we stayed at both River Lodge and Billy's Lodge from April 8th to April 16th. All three couples were thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, food, grounds and, most importantly, the amazing... More

As a crewmember of a private aircraft we depend on kitchen facilities, flexibility and willingness of the staff to help us out with minor and major requests and also transportation from and to the premises and reliability of the management or person in charge. What we found at River's Lodge was outstanding!!!!! Joshua and his team managed to make our... More

You stay in a sort of hut so don't expect the actual accommodation to be the Sheraton, but that adds to its authentic charm. The "hut" still has air conditioning, running hot and cold water and a lovely bathroom. Had a wonderful view of the river where we saw elephants on many occasions. Vervet monkeys surround the complex and provide... More

We have spend 3 days in this beautiful private game lodge. It was truly special time! People and all staff were so extremely kind and accommodating. We felt that we came to visit long time friends. On new year day all staff created small show for us and shared their dances and songs. Our Trackers were the best! Thank you... More

stayed here over christmas this year and was bowled over by its beauty. we saw the big five--including mating lions--incredibly close up in a single game drive, which was the most amazing blessing! the property itself is absolutely gorgeous and the rangers were all extremely knowledgable. i vastly preferred game drives in this reserve to being in kruger; the terrain...

We recently enjoyed our honeymoon with Ezulwini Game Lodges, the wildlife viewing was amazing! Our driver and spotters were very keen, and made sure we had a great experience! The only thing that could have been better was an explanation of the cost structure ahead of time, we definitely would have made some changes. Overall, it was the trip of... More

We stayed a one night in the River Lodge and two nights in a suite in Billy's Lodge. The Suite at Billy's Lodge is perfect and really special with an outdoor shower and a private plunge pool, with game and birdviewing out of the Paradise.The start was already amazing with Elis under the spectacular deck. We were lucky with the... More

This was our first safari and we couldn’t have had a better time. My wife had slipped a disk in her back a couple of days before we arrived at Billy’s. I let them know ahead of time and they couldn’t have been more accommodating. They offered to take her out by herself on her own very slow and smooth... More

We stayed 3 nights at Billy's Lodge in November of 2014. My husband and our friends had never been to a game reserve, while I had been to three previously. My previous experiences included an eco lodge in Kenya, a luxury tented camp near Port Elizabeth in South Africa and a lodge at a national park in western Uganda. Billy's... More
