What wonderful service, as usual. The staff are so friendly and go way above their duties to make sure that you are comfortable. The only issue is that the lodge is quite far out, but still absolutely beautiful. I will definitely be back.

This was a happy choice for an overnight stay on our way from the Kruger Park to the Royal Natal park. We had never been through this part of Swaziland before, and despite the drought, found it beautiful. The situation of Maguga Lodge is magnificent as it overlooks the Maguga Dam, which must be wonderful when full. Even now it...
