We had a decent short stay at Mantenga. The room was basic and clean, though the design is uninspiring and could do with updating. The food was very good and the restaurant terrace has an amazing view, though service feels chaotic when they're busy. Wifi very poor to non-existent. But the prices are reasonable, so definitely worth considering Mantenga if...

Everything was just perfect!! The room, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was great. The location is close to the mall and a great Swazi cultural village. We had so much fun. The views from our room....... such tranquility!! Thank you Mantenga Lodge and the free Wifi ❤

We have dined here a number of times over the last 10 years but stayed at the lodge our last 2 trips. It was clean, comfortable, and felt like we were in tropical seclusion. Early wake up call whether you want it or not by monkies romping across the roof.

We are a family with 3 children. The family room only had 4 beds, so we booked two rooms with the request that they be close together. At the check in there was already a lot of discussion and wanted to charge a higher rate than agreed. After 10 minutes of discussion among the staff we finally got the keys...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Mantenga Lodge very much. Wonderful staff from the receptionists to restaurant waiters and waitresses to our chamber maid. Had 2 lovely breakfasts and 2 super dinners, one of which was the Swazi specialty - beef grilled (outside) in a brandy sauce and served with 'pap' and 2 spicy sauces. Our room (16)...

We stayed at Matenga Lodge for 1 night. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner (main meal) at the restaurant which is in a beautiful setting. The cheesecake which we ordered for desert was a big disappointment. The room itself was pretty basic and the two single beds was definitely not ideal for a couple. The WiFi worked but was slow as...

From the security gate to the restaurant staff, everyone was friendly, welcoming and helpful. The view from the deck is something that I was looking forward to and It was great to finally view it from my own eyes. I will definitely comeback and recommend the place. Thanks Magalli
