Hlane Ndlovu Camp, Hlane Royal National Park
Ndlovu Camp is located immediately inside Hlane National Park, our accommodation is in traditional rondavels which have en-suite facilities. Each cluster of rondavels are named after different villages and we stay in the ‘Wisteria Village’. Within Wisteria is a stunning open-air restaurant with views of a waterhole often frequented by rhino and elephants. At night sounds of lions can be heard in the distance.
Please note Ndlovu Camp does not have electricity. The rooms are lit up by paraffin lanterns and candles in the evening. Hot water is available in all of the accommodation.
Mlilwane Rest Camp , Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary
We stay in either in the Mlilwane Rest Camp Huts, Rondavels or Beehive Huts, inside the conservation area, and all are equipped with en-suite facilities.
We can enjoy a sundowner or savour a delicious meal at the popular Hippo Haunt Restaurant overlooking an exceptionally picturesque pool teaming with birdlife. There are no big five here but plenty of game, including hippos and zebras that may pass through if we are lucky. If you are feeling the heat you can cool off in the rest camp's swimming pool.
