About Ezulwini Billy's Lodge

Ezulwini Billy's Lodge is a place where Africa remains unspoilt. Here, the emphasis is on friendliness and informality. Your personal game ranger will share his experiences of the bush and animals on drives in an open safari vehicle. At dusk, he will take you into the world of nocturnal creatures on a night drive, stopping for sundowners as the sun drops over the Drakensberg Mountains to be replaced by a blanket of stars. Perhaps you will take one of the more thrilling walks of all through lion country where you will get closer to natures small creatures, trees and birds than you will ever imagine.

Billy's Lodge nestles deep in the heart of lion country and is surrounded by magnificent knobthorn, leadwood and marula trees. The lodge features ample lounge areas, dining rooms and game viewing decks, as well as sumptuous leather armchairs, exquisite leadwood sculptures and original paintings by David Johnson. Billy's Lodge also boasts one of the finest wine cellars in Africa, set against a natural rock face and resembling an ancient Bushman cave.

Back at the camp, the swimming pool invites you to cool off and your charming African chalet with its thatched roof invites you to take rest through the heat of the African day. We have the Big 7 on the reserve, as well as some 460 species of birds. Our lodges in the Balule Private Nature Reserve are exclusive, luxury thatched camps offering an intimate and affordable experience, whilst still retaining the spirit of Africa.

Safari: Ezulwini Game Lodges are situated in the centre of the Greater Kruger National Park, Balule Nature Reserve section. We offer morning and evening game drives that take you deep into the heart of the bushveld, tracking Africa's wildlife.

Billy's Lodge was a wonderful place to stay on safari. There were four of us in our party and after being given a very warm welcome, we were pleasantly surprised to find we had the whole lodge to ourselves. The rooms were spacious and clean, the round cottages being our favourite rooms. We had lunch and dinner served at a different location around the site every day, always with a real fire to keep us warm in the evenings. A spectacular skywalk leads to a decked area high above a waterhole. We had such a great time during our 3 days, and were looked after so well by the staff who quickly becam...

The whole stuff was incredible nice and wiling to do their best for us in order to feel safe and most of all welcomed. We loved the style and the atmosphere of the lodge, also the dishes that the chef prepared were excellent. We would like also a particular mention for our driver who was friendly, with perfect knowledge of the wild life and the region.
