This safari resort is not to be missed! I want to start by qualifying our taste in accomodations - my husband and I travel extensively and we choose to stay only at four and five star properties. Needless to say, my expectations going into this trip were high. Ezulwini did not disappoint! You may want to consider dieting before taking...

Most people we know visiting South Africa tend to opt for staying in the Kruger on the first leg of their journey and then go on to Cape Town/Garden Route for the second part. Each to their own, but, we think this is the wrong way around. That's because if you're really looking to chill at the end of your...

We bought our stay at Ezulwini at a charity auction, having no idea that it had such high ratings, and knowing almost nothing about visiting Kruger. We could not have been more thrilled-- everything was as we would have wanted it to be. Ezulwini is elegant and lovely. Our suite at Billy's Lodge was beautiful (great design, spacious, with a...

As a South African, and having been to many game lodges in my life! I have never had such an awesome stay as I did at Ezulwini! Laurence and Loz were brilliant, with Awbrey as an epic host! Game drives were such fun with Franz and the team! Rooms are super clean and spacious with a plunge pool to take...

My only wish is that it didn't take so long to get here. I would come every year. The staff treated us like family. They made my birthday the best birthday I ever had. The ultra luxury suite almost seems sinful. Food out of this world, especially the kudu.

I couldn't have imagined a better experience! We stayed 2 nights at River Lodge and 2 nights at Billy's Lodge during the third week of January. The weather was perfect!
