This was one of the highlights of our trip to Swaziland, an amazingly beautiful place, well run with a very good restaurant and attentive and helpful staff. The owners have used traditional crafts people to build the beehive huts which are quite extraordinary. The reserve has wonderful walks and spectacular views. I cannot recommend it highly enough

Beautiful surroundings, green and peaceful. Very good service and food. Rooms need some upgrading but comfortable. The drought has taken its toll so very little water on the waterfall. Lovely walks through the reserve.

This was my second time to Phophonyane Falls...and had another wonderful stay. This time I brought my brother and his family who were visiting from the United States. We got incredibly lucky with the weather and spent pretty much one entire day hiking the very well-marked trails. We never left the property until we checked out so we could maximize... More

I stayed here with a group of friends when visiting Piggs Peak for a wedding. Phophonyane (still not 100% sure on the pronunciation) was a great place to stay. I shared on of the 4 bed lodges with friends, whilst other friends stayed in one of the beehive huts. The rooms were comfortable, clean and charming and set in a... More

We slept in 2 the luxury tents. Phophonyane Falls Ecolodge and nature reserve has an excellent and beautiful location. The staff was very friendly. The view at the pool is magnificent. Several walks start at the lodge.

I loved the lay out of the garden with the water channels giving the pleasant sound of water everywhere. Good walking trails, particular number 2. Well-prepared food. Just the right dose of comfort in the tents without overdoing it

Shared tents one and two with a couple of friends. The kitchen and veranda area was particularly good for our evening braai, and the setting is really something. Went for a walk in the morning, stunning views and all very well signposted. The pool area and grounds were delightful and the host was very welcoming. In all, a great experience... More

Phophonyane lodge is beautifully situated and a wonderful retreat. Staff is kind and helpful, and the small scale of business creates a very personal touch an a sense of luxury! The tents are very exotic and a relaxing accomodation.

We immensily enjoyed our stay in the wonderful environment of Phoponyane Reserve. The high diversity of plants and birds is healing balm for soul, mind and body. The chalet was comfortable and beautifully decorated, the staff friendly and helpful, the food excellent. We could live there!
