The detail

The Zulu phrase for paradise is "Ezulwini" - appropriate in relation to the Ezulwini Game Lodges. Alive with the rustle and shimmer of local plantlife, Ezulwini stands as a tribute to the lush and mysterious bush in which it makes its home. With a diverse selection of habitats atrracting guests and enthusiasts from across the country, standing proudly as a member of the Kruger National Park conservancy. This riverine wonderland is the perfect vantage point from which to spot the Big Five, or soak in the crisp, clean air of the Kruger's famous lowveld.

Ezulwini's three game lodges provide a wonderful cross section of the local landscape - from Billy's Lodge, flanked on all sides by impressive indigenous vegetation, to River Lodge, affixed as it is to the banks of the mighty Olifants River, and Paradise Camp - majestic accommodation riveted to the lip of the echoing Olifants River Gorge.

Billy's Lodge provides luxury, thatched accommodation, with twin bed chalets and en-suite bathrooms, intimate living areas, air conditioning and overhead fans, tea and coffee making facilities, mini-bars, insect proof screening, and DSTV televisions. Sleeping up to ten guests, this riverside lodge also boasts a crystal clear swimming pool

River Lodge offers a series of thatched chalets, all with twin beds, with en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and overhead fans, satellite televisions, tea and coffee making facilites and mini-bars, and elegant insect screens. The lodge accommodates up to fourteen guests.

Paradise Camp, a gold-era themed tented camp, located at the top of a hill. This charming little hideaway comprises of five rugged log cabins and an exquisitely converted Ox-Wagon Tent. Units are attached to outdoor showers and toilets, as well as being treated to a panoramic view of the surrounding bushveld, and boma dinners eaten under the stars.

Guests at Africa on Foot Camp can enjoy open safari vehicles twice a day, under the supervision of a team of trained and eager game rangers, who add a touch of familiarity to the otherwise wild scenario. Night drives add an extra spotlit dimension to this excitement. Game viewing takes place both on site, and in nearby areas.

Often more hands on, the popular game walks offer guests a "ground-floor" experience of the park. Hiking is also available, and regular fishing trips are also organised for keen anglers.

Ezulwini sports a variety of facilities for its guests, including internet access, fax facilities, nearby airstrip, on-site bar and laundry facilities, dry cleaning and room cleaning services, swimming pool, restaurant, and nearby horse riding and golf courses.

From the reserve's impressive hippo population, to the Big Five, and less common sightings such as the honey badger and civet cat, Balule reserve is a wildlife enthusiast's dream come true.

Adding to the experience are the abundant and colourful bird populations that guarantee a trip out into Balule's surrounding bush is one you're not likely to soon forget.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
