It was the most owesome experience to see the sunrise and listern to all the birds greeting the new day. Magestic old trees stans guard over the 1930 build homested. The stylish rooms with the wooden floors, is an old time gem experience, reminising of an era gone by. The staff were great hosts and the food were most delicious. There are an ubandance of small antilope one seldome spot in nature reserves.

Our 7th visit to Mlilwane was as always, most enjoyable. Usually we stay in the beehives in the main camp but this time spoilt ourselves with the self-catering option at Reilley's Rock. As we were only 3 people, we were offered the dinner and breakfast option inclusive. After 4 nights at the lodge, we moved down for another 3 nights at the beehives, allowing us to properly explore the region. I understand the nature of the business is transit overnighting, but it is really sad that very few visitors are actually there for long enough to experience all that Mlilwane and environs can offer. Service levels are always good. We had an issue with squeaky beds on our first night in the beehives and were given a different hut for the next two nights.
