About Dombeya Game Reserve, Shonalanga Lodge

Set in the rolling hills of a 330 hectare nature reserve, this private Lodge is a beautiful, peaceful and safe retreat, in the easy-to-access Dombeya Wildlife Estate and Game Reserve. We are located in central Eswatini, about 30 minutes from Manzini. Guests rent the entire Lodge, sleeping 4.

We have over 30 kilometres of gravel game drive roads, 10 kilometres of walking trails, and you often see herds of wildlife from the Lodge.

The Lodge has stunning sunset views, a lovely, private pool, and a wildlife watering hole within a five-minute stroll- this is a wonderful chance to experience nature, up-close.

We have a second Lodge within one kilometre if you have a bigger group- this also sleeps four (Mkhiweni Lodge), please enquire.

Please note that we have no front-desk-reception-area, and the gates into the Reserve are always locked. Upon confirmation of your booking, we will send you the codes to open the gates. PLEASE BRING THIS CODE WITH YOU, AS WELL AS THE MAP WE SEND YOU!

We are about 30 minutes past Manzini (toward Luve/Simunye), along the MR5. The closest grocery stores and shops are in Manzini. Guests need their own transport to visit the Reserve; it is not suited for a visit via a taxi/public transport- aplogies!

This is a stunning and unique opportunity to experience nature up-close, from the privacy of your own Lodge.

Safari: This is a unique experience. You can explore the Reserve from the privacy of your own vehicle, or on foot. It is wonderful to watch wildlife on your own, quiet and relaxed terms.

Family friendly: Shonalanga Lodge is wonderful for families! With a private pool and the entire Wildlife Reserve to explore on foot or in a car, this is a fabulous safari destination for families.

Romantic: Shonalanga Lodge is extemely private- wake up to the sounds of nature, and enjoy a glass of wine from your verandah, while watching herds of zebra and impala graze nearby.
