  • Been going since 2013, sadly now 2022 will be my last... Neglected, no drinks available at bar, only 2 items on the food menu available... Used to be a good spot. Not anymore
  • A friendly lodge with amazing views of Swaziland. Peace and tranquility is sure to be found. The nature reserve is also quite enjoyable. Great for friends and families.
