The stay at Billy's lodge was unforgettable. I would like to thank the staff for making this an amazing experience. The accommodation is spacious and luxurious. The views from the lodge as well as from the insightful game drives took my breath away. This extravagant lodge expressed a homely feel filled with love and care from the managers and staff....

Our recent trip to Ezulwini was much anticipated as my girlfriend and I had been following the breathtaking images of wildlife and lodges posted frequently by the Ezulwini staff on their Facebook page. We returned from our holiday with an experience that has exceeded our expectations and a longing to go back. Not only is the Balule a beautiful piece...

Our stay at Billys and River lodge were pleasant - one located on the banks of the Olifants river, the other a bit inland, allowed us for different bush experiences. The lodges are run by the owners daughter - an experienced, level 4 guide, assisted by a resident manager at the River lodge. The staff are efficient and delightful, however...

We loved visiting Ezulwini and had an amazing experience at both lodges. We are ready to bring the family. The amazing thing about Ezulwini at the time was that all guests had bought the trip through a charity so the people were not only adventurous but very giving. The hosts, so kind that they let us visit the Cape Town...

Had three nights and really enjoyed our time. The staff was great, especially Glori.....what a great smile and attitude. Our luggage was delayed off KLM and Glori got on the phone and arranged its delivery. Game drives were both fun and productive. Food was not fancy but always plentiful and good.
