We stayed at the Bushwillow cottage for a week during the June/July holidays. The setting was peaceful and the cottage had everything we could possibly need. We enjoyed watching the game pass the cottage and spent our evenings in the jacuzzi. A really peaceful and relaxing break which I can highly recommend. The staff are extremely helpful and we enjoyed... More

We stayed there with a family of five. Every detail from arriving to leaving was absolutely perfect. You could not ask for friendlier service.rooms beautifully appointed, from appliances to furniture to linen. Everything sparkling, clean and well looked after. Even if you're just passing through you get the bonus of staying with animals for a reasonable price. The most perfect... More

Staff were attentive on arrival and throughout my stay. I did not eat breakfast but had dinner both nights and the food and service was very good. No TV, no internet, clear view of the Milky Way - bliss.

We had such a relaxing weekend. Furnishing and facilities were great. Everything was spotless. Kerry was so helpful and friendly. Perfect getaway and so close to the game reserve. Would have been nice to see some game in Kuleni.

This is such a special place to stay in the Hlululwe area in KZN. The accommodation consists of a Lodge with two units for accommodation and three chalets which are known as the Boutique. Our family stayed in Green Monkey Orange which accommodates 6 and my husband and I stayed in Yellowood which is a chalet for two people! The... More

The place is well located, middle way between Sodwana and Santa Lucia, fantastic well designed houses, with animals visiting us from time to time, the service is very good and although we were not with all inclusive because of the type of the house, we have requested breakfast and dinner and the service and quality of food was very good.....

What an amazing little piece of heaven! We stayed in Red Ivory and it was simply magical. We chose to have dinner for one of the nights and it was simply delicious. The staff had gone the extra mile and made us an anniversary table, a beautiful card and chocolates and gave us some champagne...you seldom find such caring people!... More

We were very lucky that there were only 2 couples staying so lovely and quiet in the bush and first class attention. The food was excellent and the advice and assistance we were given was top notch. Just don't go on the night owl walk as there is a leopard about!

As a family we are all very much nature lovers and find nothing more relaxing than getting out into the bush to view the animals & birds in their natural habitat, so staying here for a few nights was a wonderful treat for us from our overseas children. As local KZN residents we do frequent this area often, normally as... More

Spent 2 nights in Marula. It initially seemed to me a little odd going to all the effort of having a luxury bush destination in a game reserve that only has harmless animals. However the atmosphere is completely different to any of the big 5 destinations, and guests are welcome to take bushwalks at their own discretion. This area is... More
