Beautiful setting, friendly staff, lovely accommodation, good food and an absolute must for the bush lover. Great for a quick stress reliever. It was amazing to see the Big Five on one drive - was very lucky indeed. Either way, as a bush lover this is most definitely a treat. Highly recommended and on my 'definite' list to do again!...

the good thing are the game drives the guys do a good job! but the management is on a level of a backpacker hotel for low Budget. the entire setup is in a quite bad standard and maintenance is missing in a lot of areas! assuming all details ti is completely overpriced!

It was by far the greatest experience of my life. The people there have become friends and the hospitality was amazing. The mornings were amazing having coffee out in the bush. The best part is watching all of the wildlife when sitting out on the sky deck. If I could I would drop everything and go back today.

Truth to be told: I think my actual flat is smaller than the size of the luxury rooms at the Ezulwini River Lodge. What an exceptional spot to be at. Our hosts welcomed us in the most lovely way and spent the evening with us. Amazing service and food. The rooms are massive and if you tired of socialising you... More

Visited October 2015. We had never been on a safari before, and had won the trip at an auction, so we weren't sure what to expect. We stayed at both River Lodge and Billy's Lodge, and the staff were all warm, welcoming, and friendly. The guides and trackers were amazing and took us on some great adventures in the bush... More

We purchased a 4 day package through a charity fundraiser. The first two days were spent at the River Lodge camp and it was just what I needed for some peace and relaxation. Although the lodges have Internet available we choose to disconnect. The wildlife noises created a great ambiance. The service was first rate - food was delicious (you... More

Our stay at both River Lodge and Billy's Lodge a month ago completely exceeded all expectations. This was my 3rd trip to South Africa and the 1st trip for the rest of my party. Having experienced bush lodges on prior trips, I knew what to expect and thus had fairly high expectations. I can happily say that Ezulwini surpassed all... More

Traveled at the same time as Ronnie K and Jane B and agree completely with their reviews. This is a peculiar enterprise of 3 lodges – two in Balule Game Reserve and one in Four Acres, Johannesburg. Let’s separate the safari experience with the “hotel” experience. The Balule drives were awesome although one driver/guide cited by Ronnie drove pretty wildly.... More

My parents first trip to Africa and my first trip to a game reserve. Extremely friendly service, great staff and obviously amazing animals. Angele, Glory, Fraans, Richard and Lawrence made the trip special in their own unique ways. If you want a very personal experience with a staff that cares about your holiday then go for this experience. We stayed... More
