Mantenga Lodge
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Ezulwini
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 11, 2010

This is a fabulous lodge. We stayed in one of the log cabins on stilts and the views from our room were breathtaking. The room was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Every day a troop of vervet monkeys would come to forage in the gardens and they would literally walk right under our cabin! It was such fun to watch the young monkeys playing. There is a lovely swimming pool with sun loungers overlooked by a huge deck outside the restaurant where you can have sundowners. You should really try the signature dish, it's a flaming steak dish with traditional African accompaniments like pap, and it's absolutely delicious! Mantenga Lodge is within easy driving distance from Mbabane, casinos, a golf course, a nature reserve, restaurants, cinemas, craft and Swazi candle markets - so there's plenty to do!

This hotel is fabulous - really great setting overlooking the mountains and a stone's through from all the best things to see and do in Swaziland. The Staff, mgmt are all friendly and the menu is great and the prices reasonable. Allowing for the fact it's a Lodge the rooms are clean, quiet and it's easily one of the best value for money options you'll find in Swaziland.

Order the signature (flaming steak!) dish, have a delcious cocktail and sit on the deck watching the sun setting over the mountains. Bliss - can't wait to go back!

Stayed several nights--close to game reserve, restaurants, near Manzini, craft shopping close, great coffee house (Linda's ) in the Gables shopping center. Breakfast was yummy each day, cocktails and dinner on the porch were enhanced with the gorgeous view of Execution Rock.
