About Ezulwini Game Lodge

Ezulwini Game Lodge is an owner-managed lodge situated on 300 hectares of private game property in Hluhluwe, KwaZulu-Natal. The sand-forests contribute to the variety of birdlife found around the lodge and the indigenous garden features a variety of vegetation including the lala palm, which can be used for basket weaving, and the marula tree whose fruits are a favourite of monkeys.

Accommodation comprises 19 adjacent Bedrooms built in a U-shape, four Chalets, a Log Cabin and a Treehouse. All accommodation is within walking distance from the main building and offer practical conveniences and pampering products. Stylish interiors and spacious gardens create a pleasant and warm ambiance and the rooms are also serviced twice daily.

The lodge offers a lounge area with TV, a dining room, a bar, a sparkling pool, and a boma where you can simply enjoy the sounds of nature around a blazing log fire. Our restaurant offers meals that are a feast of traditional tastes, and health-conscious guests or special dietary requirements are catered for. Pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed in our fully stocked bar and will introduce you to South Africa's traditional liquors, beer and a selection of wines.

Ezulwini Game Lodge is also ideal for team-building exercises, orientation courses and conferences. Our air-conditioned conference venue, accommodating up to 50 delegates, features an overhead projector and screen, a TV, a flip chart, and a whiteboard. In addition, secure parking suitable for buses and large coaches is available.

Leisure activities on the property include an enticing pool, a scenic wildlife walk or a nature drive. Unspoilt nature trails bring unrestricted encounters with the small pleasures that are Africa; the sun's warm embrace, the rich smell of soil, sweeping grasslands, intriguing insects, and the sounds of birds and antelope while zebra and giraffe graze nearby. The property does not host dangerous wildlife such as lion, buffalo or rhino, but is home to the scarce suni and red duiker, while birding highlights include the pink throated twinspot and the beautiful nariina trogen. Big 5 safaris also depart from the lodge into the Hluhluwe Umfolozi game reserve daily.

We were accommodated in the house, which was ideal for a party of four adults and two children.  Despite arriving in heavy rain (the first for many months) we had an excellent time and would not hesitate to go there again if the opportunity arose.

We had booked 2 self catering chalets, but when we arrived we were offered the house which had originally been the owners home. It was incredibly spacious and comfortable for the three of us. We loved going walking in the reserve, and found the black impala which I particularly wanted to see. The young were still black and they were adorable.The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We mostly self catered but when we did eat in the restaurant the food was good. Would definitely recommend as somewhere to stay for a few nights.

Stayed at the Main House for two nights and were very pleased with the lodge as well as the excellent service. A big thanks to Anel for always being happy to help. Will definitely recommend Ezulwini to others. Woke up in the morning to find giraffes roaming outside the lodge. Kids also enjoyed and miss the cute little dog and the lovely ginger cat. Needed to spend a bit longer.

Enjoyed our stay. Hosts were friendly and very helpful. Woke up to the sound of zillions of birds and the kitchen which was close. The birds, though, were louder!
