I loved to stay in Mlilwane because the place is very beautiful, the rooms is comfortable and the common areas are very organized. The staff is great, there are a lot of activities to do and the food is unbelievable with a fare price

Stayed: December 2016, travelled solo

We only stayed one night in this accommodation. Due to our late arrival (getting lost in Swaziland is not a good thing to do) we were not able to do any activity's at the camp. The beehive huts are nice to see and are equipped with all the basic needs. Although you can easily hear outside noise and people walking by, this didn't disturbed us much as you can also hear animals and night sounds which increases your wildlife experience. The restaurant was good and with a nice view on the hippo pool. Staff were helpful and friendly. The road to the camp is a little rough so be careful there, we made it with our Kia Picanto but i would advise a bigger car (prob. a 4x4 is best)

Sorry to hear you got lost in Swaziland! Please let us know directly if this was a point of our directions, or a GPS error? We would like to assess any issues had and correct for future guests.
Well done on navigating our roads! Smaller cars can adequately get to the camps from the tar road, although some roads become a challenge during wet weather. There has been a lot of wash during recent rain storms, but it is definitely still passable. The best advice is to always keep tyres on the higher ground!
Great to hear you enjoyed our unique beehive huts, staff and restaurant.

Mlilwane was a great experience. There's a good mix of locals and tourists, braaing (BBQing), hanging out at the restaurant/bar, and in the very nice party huts (gazebos). The cultural dancing and drums around the fire at night is THE HIT. I loved staying in the behive hut with it's luxury linens, nice water pressure, tea and coffee facilities. The restaurant food and service were excellent. The bartenders were entertaining. I had a terrific time at Mlilwane and would recommend this as a stopover. We didn't use the pool but others enjoyed it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Nyala, new behives (with ensuite bathrooms)

We enjoyed our stay in the Bee Hive hut. Super clean, very comfortable beds, and good showers. Its a 3 star lodge, but in a 5 star settings. Great walks to be done. You can also rent bikes. Peacefull. Very inviting swimming pool. Would suggest a 2 night stay.

Stayed: November 2016

The Sanctuary covers 4,560 hectares and comprises of a southern and northern section.
