We stopped here for one night on our transit through Swaziland based on the excellent reviews. As always, fellow travelers are right on.

Our third visit to Umdoni - the breakfasts prepared by Yenzi still make a wonderful start to the day. Comfortable accommodation with great hosts (Charles & Jane). The local area is developing so plenty to see and do. Good golf at Royal Swazi Sun and Nkonyeni.
