Highly recommend! Stunning location and spacious, luxurious rooms! Incredibly helpful and friendly staff. Easy access from here to much of what the country has to offer. NOTE: Google Maps took us to the wrong location. Do not leave Mantenga Drive until you see big, unmistakable signs for Benka Lifestyle Lodges. (If in doubt, just navigate yourself down Mantenga.)

A very tranquil, gorgeous place with wildlife freely. The room was beautiful and spacious but the bed was on the hard side and the room was smelling of jeyes fluid. I was disappointed that no housekeeping was done during our stay. I know it’s self-catering but It would be nice to have a restaurant on-site for people that don’t want to cook.

Spacious bedroom and bathroom as well. Some wall sockets were not working like in the bathroom and some in the house, overall it's a very good accommodation. I would recommend it, but the route from the main road needs constant maintenance.

We spent 3 nights in the Zebra 3-sleeper unit. On our arrival we were pressed for time, our cell phones weren't working, and we were desperate to find out directions to an international chess tournament that was being held in Eswatini that day. Adrienne, went out of her way to get us connected to the Wi-Fi and even wrote down manual directions for us to follow on our way as without Waze we would have been totally lost. The location of the unit is stunning, bordering on the Malwane Nature Reserve, we saw zebra, herds of nyala, warthogs, vervet monkeys and impala roaming freely around the unit. The road to get to the accommodation is dirt but wasn't a problem at all, even in the rain. They are only a few km's away from a lovely shopping complex with nice restaurants and a Pick n Pay. The unit itself is spotless, spacious and serviced daily. The beds are super comfortable. It is exactly as shown on the website and in all the photos. The rock pool which is near the unit was lovely and clean and looked so inviting, however, we didn't have time to try it out. We had breakfast delivered on our last morning which was such a treat. If we could make a recommendation - and this is definitely not a criticism - it would be to maybe make an area with gravel or pavers close to the unit on which to park on as it rained heavily while we were there turning everything into mud. The cherry on top of a wonderful stay was to have our car washed before we left. All in all, Benka gets a triple thumbs up from our family and will definitely be our accommodation of choice when visiting Eswatini again.

The facility was conveniently located with beautiful chalets. The chalets were beautiful, spacious and well cleaned. The staff were welcoming, flexible and understanding, they were an amazing team. The facility needs to improve on their parking, especially next to the chalets. The parking gets very slippery on rainy days, thus it needs an improvement.

We would definitely return to Benka lifestyle cottages. The serenity of the place is everything we needed. The rooms were stunning and clean with fully equipped kitchen. The view from the cottage was stunning. We enjoyed the privacy.

I had an amazing stay at this beautiful guest house. It exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Swaziland, whether they are friends, family, or colleagues. Adrienne, the host, was simply amazing and went above and beyond to ensure that I had a comfortable stay. The staff were also very friendly, which is a rare find these days. I wish Adrienne and her team all the best for the future.

Difficult to find and directions on internet maps wrong. Chalets very cheap and tacky and a lot of flies. Not really a place for families. The owners made us feel like we were in their way. We would not go there again
