Ezulwini Game Lodges
Ezulwini Game Lodges are situated in the centre of the Greater Kruger National Park, Balule Nature Reserve section, which is approximately 17 kilometres from Hoedspruit making it easily accessible from both Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa airports.

It is approximately 5 hours drive from Johannesburg. We are situated in a very low risk malaria area and have never had a case of malaria at our lodges.

The emphasis at our Lodges is on friendliness and informality. Our rangers are well trained and our lodges have private chefs to ensure your stay is even more memorable. Ezulwini prides itself on being able to offer an exceptional African setting, indigenous fauna and flora as well as unique character and charm, to provide you with an authentic, African experience.

All lodge rooms have new silent climate control air conditioning and heating facilities, mini bars and elegant mosquito nets. Please note that check-in time is 14:00 and check-out time is 11:00. Please make prior arrangements should you require alternate times.

    Ezulwini Game Lodges Activities:

    After having a wonderful breakfast on the deck you can plan your day. You could go on a game drive, a ranger-guided walk through the bush or just laze by the pool for a while.

    Relax in a cozy lounge with a selection of wildlife books and videos, or cool off in the pool in summer, before heading out for the evening game drive in the Land Rovers.

    The day typically begins with an early morning game drive, in search of Africa's exciting fauna, followed by a sumptuous breakfast on the deck. You can then go on a ranger-guided walk through the bush and learn about game tracks and all of the little creatures.

    Discover how the local people use trees to make toothbrushes and toothpaste, tea and coffee, poultices, etc. Alternatively relax on a cosy leather couch, enjoying the animals at the water, and the ever present bird life in one of the top birding areas in South Africa.

    A wine tasting in our amazing cellar is followed by a Boma barbeque.
