We popped in spontaneously to look at the falls and spend the rest of the day on the deck relaxing. The service is good, the food is fantastic. We enjoyed our day visit so much that on the way out we booked a stay so we can come back! It is so beautiful!

The trip to Phophonyane Falls is a great experience in itself. Lovely scenery all around. But we were not very satisfied with our cottage. Especially because of what we paid for it: 120 euros a night. We were expecting something more than a broken fridge, a ground flour stuffed with beds and one tiny sofa. The bathroom felt dirty.

We had a very unique stay at Phophonyane falls, it was real adventure driving down the long dirt road to the falls entrance and we loved the feeling of being hidden away in the lush green forested reserve. We were greeted by friendly staff who offered to carry our bags... felt sorry for them as we had heavy luggage for... More

This is a beautiful place & I would have liked to have stayed. The border crossing from Malelane is delightful. The Lodge is located such that there is a stunning view from the escarpment & is situated immediately adjacent to some very impressive waterfalls. The hotel is designed so that you are never far from a stream with has a... More

We were very impressed with this eco-lodge conveniently situated close to the Swazi-SA border and a very easy border crossing from Piggs Peak (Bulembu border post) back into SA. On arrival we were slightly concerned about the self-catering cottage layout, sharing open volume accommodation with clients but our hostess Edna soon made us feel at ease as she provided one...

My partner and I spent 3 memorable nights at Phophonyane staying in a beehive room. We found this accommodation comfortable. We had a great little adventure walking the trails and viewing the falls. We loved the feeling of having nature close but at no time felt in danger. The service was great and the staff were friendly and helpful. We... More

The sound of the falls is memorable. Feels that you are surrounded by nature and the trails are beautiful. Swimming in otter pool was a highlight. Deck is lovely as is the large swimming pool, accommodation is comfortable, clean but a bit worn. Our Chalet for 4 was suitable for families but not 2 Couples so choose carefully to make... More

We had a lovely stay (2 nights) at the lodge with our two children (aged 6 and 8). We made a wonderful hike along the river and the waterfall with great views. The trails are well maintained and signposted. Cottage number 2 is lovely with a large private garden and a 360 degree view from the top bedroom (including a... More
