Swadini A Forever Resort
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Hoedspruit
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I am not a camping type unless i have no choice but I decided that I am going to challenge myself into changing my ways especial after we bought a trailer.

When I arrived at Swadini resort 2 weeks ago, I was impressed by the quality of the resort and staff. I was surprised to find at a campsite a hot and cold swimming pool, a tennis court and walking area etc. If also you want a housekeeper or let us call it "a tent keeper" you could pay one to put up your tent, wash your dishes or clean up your temporary home for you...depend what you are looking for...5 star service, comfort or fun...all is available!!!

The first time we went was 20-22 Nov 1981, and we must have been there about 40 to 50 times till now. The staff are wonderful. The entertainment iswonderful. You are close the Kruger National Park, that is a big advantage, and there are many beautiful places to see that are closeby. You are also in the heart of mango, banana and citrus area.
I am busy planning my next holiday to Swadini.
They have hot and cold swimming pools, that are amazing.
See for yourself.

We were recently at Swadini Forever Resort for 5 nights while visiting the Kruger Gateway area, before moving on to 2 nights within KNP itself. We were travelling as a family of 7 and took 2 adjacent cottages (1 x 6-sleeper, 1 x 4-sleeper). We found the cottages to be clean and well enough equipped for what we were expecting, although the 4-sleeper was more modernised in terms of furnishing choices. We found the resort to be excellent value for money, provided ample self-catering facilities, with beautiful surroundings and enough activities on the grounds to keep the kids occupied (heated and non-heated swimming pools, mini golf, tennis courts, walking trails, spacious grounds, etc). A big highlight for my kids were the Nyala antelope who roam freely through the grounds, and the truly beautiful night skies. Check in was smooth and efficient, staff that we encountered were friendly and warm, and while the resort doesn't advertise itself as a 5-star luxury retreat, we feel it's an excellent family location. Close proximity to a number of lovely outings, and in our 4 days we managed to do the boat trip, several wildlife/conservation options, zipline tour, and a half day in Kruger itself. I highly recommend the Swadini resort if you're looking for a family-friendly value-for-money resort, with easy access to entertaining and educational day trips.

Room Tip: The 6-sleeper cabins have 2 bedrooms only - a main bedroom and 4 single beds in a second bedroom. Be...

We stopped at Swadini en route from Jo'Burg to Sabi Sands in Kruger for a safari. Lots of good sight seeing en route and the boat ride on the dam the next morning was fabulous. The units are 2 bedroom- But unless you have children with you we would recommend that only 2 persons be accomodated. They are inexpensive enough so that it is not a burden.

What an awesome resort. An unbelievable setting together with clean, well equipped cottages, comfortable camping area and ample amenities all combine to make this an excellent holiday destination. We stayed in a 4 sleeper cottage which was neat, spacious and well equipped. Kudu and bushbuck grazed peacefully in the lawns and vervet monkeys frolicked in the trees. The resort has two huge pools, one of them heated, tennis court, putt putt amongst others. There are also some great walking trails. The resort shop is well stocked. There is a bar and restaurant. The resort is close to lots of attractions and is a super base for exploring the region. We really enjoyed our stay there. Helpful, friendly and efficient staff made this a memorable stay!

This resort is unbelievable actually. First off, it's VERY well organized and laid out with a combination of tenting areas and cottages/cabins of various sizes and conveniences. We stayed in a one bedroom cottage high up the road towards the lookout point. It was VERY comfortable and felt like we were at home. We had a kitchen, living room, separate bedroom with a wall of windows overlooking the canyon, and a lovely bathroom with all of the fittings.

There is a restaurant and bar which offer great service and food.

Be SURE to hike to the lookout point for sunrise. You will be enchanted.
