We spent one night in the Hlane Royal National Park base camp, and that was worth while to enjoin the hippo's and rhino's at the pool.
We also booked a 2,5h tour to see the lions, but this was dissapointing. We only were 1h in the 'lion section', where we got to see a lion, but our guide was not very respectful: he went dangerously close to (according to him) two aggressive elephants, and started revin the engine to attract some reaction from a sleeping lion...

The pool at the rest camp is great! You are really close to it, and you have a great view of hippo's and rhino's roaming around.

it's a really nice place! A full immersion inside the nature... many kind of animals, lions, rinos, elephants, birds, hippos, giraffes, zebras, impalas! the only one problem is the complete absence of electricity in the lodges, but i think that can be part of the game... Ranger of the park are very kindly!!!

We had a two night stay here, very comfortable, charming rondavel accommodation with lanterns creating a warm ambience. Impala wandering about the camp, very relaxed atmosphere. Saw bush buck, impala on game drive. Stopped at the waterhole, were graced with the presence of the national bird of Swaziland, a glorious thing. Bush walk interesting, cultural. Walked with Rhinocerous, my goodnesss, this was a heart stopping, thrilling experience, perhaps 10m from these 3tonne greats! A highlight of our trip. Meals good, entertainment by staff excellent. A great place for families. Guides knowledge excellent.

3rd time to Hlane Game Park and to the same big house, the 8 sleeper in Ndlovu Camp. This cool game park has got everything and you have a good chance of seeing it at the waterhole right in front your accommodation! We saw rhinos, giraffe, hippo and elephants all at the waterhole without even having to drive around. This park is great for a stopover to Mozambique as we did, highly recommended!
