I used to go here often as a child. Nothing has changed, but it is still clean and lots of fun for the family. From booking to checking in to checking out, the service was very pleasant. Although the place looks slightly out dated, the scenery is amazing and the activities for the family are lots of fun. I would...

The area is in a beautiful place . In the middle of mountain very relaxing . I went there with my friends. The chalets are good except the mat smells a bit but overall is good.. though we got disapointed that the quadbikes werent there. But we got to go on a boat trip which was very mind refreshing.

We went to Swadini recently for our second stay. This time I decided to write a short review. The scenery is outstanding and the location is central to almost all the tourist attractions we wanted to see. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom 6 bed units. Besides your immediate neighbour the units are spaced far away from each...

The units do need a good cleaning. but we did enjoy our stay, with the Kudu and Baboons walking around us all the time. Lots to do for the children, swimming pool, put put etc.... also a waterfall not to far to visit.

Surroundings are beautiful and well looked after. BUT that doesnt help if none of your neighbours abide to the 10 of clock rule of no music and you have a 16 month old baby trying to sleep. Management does nothing about that. Result: pay lot of money for a bad nights rest. Truly disappointed

“The free standing Chalets (nr 54) very quite. Higher numbers - close to the Youth Centre - they can be noisy.”

“The property is quite large to make sure you book close to the facilities, or be prepared for a drive or a 10-15m walk.”

“Try and get a chalet close to the central entertainment/pool area, otherwise it's a long walk or short drive. Otherwise bring bikes!”
