The oldest and most visited Swazi park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary is situated within easy reach of the popular Ezulwini and Malkerns tourism hubs. The Sanctuary is a tranquil retreat for the weary and a scenic family paradise.

Allow your senses to take in the refreshing surroundings on horseback, mountain bikes, open Land Rover tours and foot trails.

For the more adventurous, our overnight horse trails offer a fantastic outdoor riding experience on beautiful Arabian ponies, through the Sanctuary and into the mountains which afford a breathtaking panoramic view of the “Valley of Heaven” know as Ezulwini.

Open your lungs by climbing to the top of a mountain and looking out at infinity or swim in the mountain springs.

For the discerning traveler the stunning Reilly`s Rock Lodge, or Kagogo (granny’s place) as it is affectionately known, is an exclusive and fascinating venue, offering a historical perspective of early Swaziland, and Mlilwanes founding family.

24 hour access to the Sanctuary is a valuable feature for late arrivals, business travelers and those on night excursions to other nearby attractions.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay
Bill Jackson Aug 2016
We loved the friendly and helpful staff and the wide range of activities which are available to visitors. The wild animals which wander through the camp are beautiful to watch. There are also a number of places to visit outside the reserve. We really enjoyed the stay.
Mariana Minty Apr 2016
The infrastructure was good and staff were amazing. Friendly reception everyday. Lights were out on arrival but handled very professionally.

Game viewing was excellent and the respect for animals on the property was clear by the way they felt free to roam through the camp. Hiking signs were also well marked.
Anisha Dayaram Dec 2014

Fantastic surroundings with big animals passing by our front door. We really enjoyed the self-catering rondavel, which was spacious and comfortable with some great views to the open plains and the hills beyond.
The only drawback was the not very impressive food, and that the kitchen couldn't make even a sandwich the first night when we arrived just after 8pm.

Jakob Riise Apr 2013

Mlilwane is a lovely little reserve. The landscape is absolutely beautiful and you can walk and cycle and ride horses in crisp clear air among plains game. We drove up a mountain road and found a picnic place from which we could walk a way and look at the view.

We stayed in the wooden chalets which were perfect, unpretentious and spotless. Each had a fridge and a comfortable double bed with white linen.

We braaied, and were given our own log fire to use, with seats around it; fantastic evening. We were near the restaurant and we borrowed pans and things we'd forgotten. Everyone was friendly and cool about it. I think we paid about E5 (R5) per piece of equipment for washing up purposes.

The nyala and warthog and impala came wandering through the camp in the evening and the morning, and peered in the windows.

My only complaint was that we were a bit close to the kitchen and there was a lot of rattling of dishes from early in the morning.

From Durban/Maputo/Kruger Park/Johannesburg:
Follow the road signs to Mbabane.
Take the MR3 Mbabane/Manzini dual carriageway towards Manzini.
Take the third off-ramp, signposted Mlilwane/Lobamba/Elangeni/Ezulwini.
Turn right under the highway.
Pass the National Archives on the left and at the traffic circle, turn immediate left into the first road around the circle, pass the King Sobhuza II Memorial Park on the right and then turn left again onto the MR103 craft route or old road.
Pass the Caltex filling station and +/- 500m further turn right at the Mlilwane sign onto a dirt road.
Continue for +/-4km to the Sangweni Gate.

If you decide to take the Scenic/Craft Route from Mbabane, take the first off-ramp, namely the Ezulwini/Mlilwane off-ramp.
Carry on with this road through Ezulwini and Lombamba until you pass the Caltex filling station on the left.
+/- 500m further, turn right at the Mlilwane sign onto a dirt road.
Continue for +/-4km to the Sangweni Gate.
