Travellers' Choice
Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary is Swaziland's pioneer conservation area and a beautiful, secluded sanctuary situated in the Kingdom's Ezulwini Valley, 'Valley of Heavens'. Located between Mbabane and Manzini, 24hr gate access is offered to the Sanctuary enabling guests to enjoy the neighbouring tourist hubs of Ezulwini and Malkerns with their many unique attractions and craft shops. The name 'Mlilwane' ('Little Fire' in siSwati) was derived from the numerous fires started by lightening strikes on the Mlilwane Hill but now holds significance as the little fire that started a big conservation movement in Swaziland resulting in the saving of over 22 species from local extinction across the three reserves. The Sanctuary covers 4,560 hectares and comprises of a southern and northern section. The southern section's grassland plains stretch up to the striking Nyonyane Mountain with its exposed granite peak known as the 'Rock of Execution'. All of Mlilwane's accommodation, dining and activity options are concentrated in this southern section of the park, with the exception of guided trails which enter the pristine northern section.

Beautiful, vast national park/sanctuary with multiple walking/biking/horse riding options for exploring. We spent 1 night in a spacious cottage fitted with a small tea kitchen but only ate in the restaurant, which was great value for money.

Lovely beautiful place. Staff very friendly and accommodating. NO FREE WI-FI is a major negative for a business traveler. Enjoyed watching the resident crocodile from the restaurant balcony! Will definitely recommend and will book again.

Because of COVID and unrest in eSwatini we were the only guests. All personnel was very friendly and helpful. The guided bike tour was fun and informative. We can also recommend the hippo walk that goes through several different landscapes.

Booked in and a very loud and noisy party was held just below beehive huts. No peace and quiet to be had. Very dissapointed as we came here for watching animals and to enjoy peace away from the bustle.

A hidden gem just outside the huz & buz of Matsapha. I was amazed at the good condition of the animals and Sanctuary. Staff was very friendly and helpful and adhered to all covid protocols. We will be visiting again in July 2021.
