A warm welcome from the staff set the tone for a lovely few days. The lodge and the five rooms are beautifully appointed with a blend of Africa and French. The staff are attentive and very well trained.

My wife and I spent 3 nights of our Honeymoon in the Honeymoon Suite at Esiweni, welcomed by Sophie and her team with a lovely African sing-song! Amazing room with outside bath, inside bath and shower. The pathway was lit with oil lamps at night, making for a fantastic atmosphere.
