Most of the staff is not very friendly.. we did not had a pleasant welcome and the lady at the reception was not interested at all. Rooms are very dated and mattresses need to be replaced badly. There was only one plus: the location and the food. Will not come here again.

Let me tell you one thing: If you love Giraffes like me - THIS is the place to be. The accommodation is hidden in a little reserve and hosts a few giraffe families. Since there is no dangerous game on the reserve, you can go search them yourselves and on foot. We found 4 curious giraffes and it was the...

When we arrived, we were a bit disappointed maybe tired, I do not know but finally, it is nice. The chalet is well furnished with kitchen, bedroom, but it would be better if it seems to be more modern. It is a bit old-fashioned. But the dinner with lots of south african specialities are really appreciated for 180 rand per...

We really had a very good time here. It is fantastic for my guests to see the giraffe up close and personal. They also loved the fact that they can walk around freely without worries. The food is also very good.

My colleague and were treated unfairly by the Manager of Ezulwini game lodge in Hluhluwe. The unfriendly manager instructed us not seat with other guests in the restaurant, even though the was enough space for everyone to seat. He recommended that we eat in our rooms, because all the tables were reserved by the guests (whites). We were only two...

While not as close to the Hluhluwe Park as you want to be (30 km), this is a lovely place to stay. Host Pieter takes a lot of pleasure in keeping his guests happy. The food is great and the braai he prepares is always delicious. While this is a working pineapple farm, there is a variety of game that...

What a lovely place this was, the staff were lovely, it was so peaceful and quiet. Very clean and comfortable apart from the shower which was a bit cramped and poor water pressure. The pool area was lovely and bonfire at night was wonderful. Highly recommend this place, great value for money.

This lodge have very nice game that are fairly tame. Giraffes come and drink at the little drinking hole and can be approached fairly close and viewed. Very good place to see the crested guinea fowl, they come right into the lodge and can be viewed up close and personal. Comfortable rooms and good honest food. Owners are very friendly...
