I had the pleasure of taking my family to stay for 5 nights at Phonphonyane over Xmas. All the staff went out of their way to make our visit pleasant and memorable. Our arrival had been unavoidably delayed by 5 hours - no problem the kitchen stayed open till after 11pm ! We enjoyed pleasant walks on well marked trails around the reserve; delicious food (the grilled Swazi chicken a favourite); a quirky but fun and very comfortable 'beehive' suite and a very pleasant ambiance with families and children providing a lovely atmosphere for Xmas dinner.
