Spent 3 nights at Nselweni Bush Camp with friends. Had a wonderful relaxing bush experience and nightly visits by Hyena. Awoke to lion roars and owl hoots. The chalet is basic but clean and well stocked. Had generator power in the early morning and at night. No 6 had hot water issues and an occasional sewerage smell however. I would...

The camp is very nice. Self catering units. The is a conference/dining area with a large deck overlooking the the river. A great view. The tented huts don't overlook the river, but, they face the bush which is also nice. There is also a large boma where you can have a braai and sit at by fire at night.

Amazing accommodation, in the middle of the iMfolozi reserve. You are here alone in front on the nature (and the river). Accommodations are clean, nice and warm! Self catering mandatory. Contrary to what is said on KZN website, you can access this camp without a 4x4 car. I highly recommend chalet 9 or 10, more isolated than the other ones.

We spent 2 incredible nights (17-19 Feb 2017) at this beautiful camp. We stayed in unit 1, which is at the end & quite private. It has no neighbours on your left, neighbours to your right & views of the bush. We arrived in a torrential downpour & luckily Jerry was there to help us quickly off load. Jerry was...

Very nice camp in the bush with everything you need for a weekend. A nice table and comfortable chairs on the verandah would make it a bit more comfortable and user friendly. The main deck is a strange size so only a few people can sit and enjoy sundowners whilst game viewing over the river which is a stunning view.

We spent only 1 night at Nselweni and it was beautiful. The accommodation is new and clean. The bedroom has a nice lookout in the bush with a very wide window in the front, so you can relax on your bed and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Although it is indeed very peaceful, the units are a bit too close to...

We stayed at No 9 set away from the other buildings and we absolutely loved this camp. It is surprisingly well appointed. Really lovely bathroom and the small kitchen had all we needed. Our deck overlooked the Umfolozi and our firsthand night we heard Lions roar nearby. We saw Rhinoceros each evening and morning from the deck which was amazing....

My wife and I had a great time at Nselweni from 21st to 23rd October. We managed to get #4 which has a river view but wouldn't have minded any of them. Everything you need except no hot water....we didn't mind because it was quite warm....but in winter this would be a problem! The viewing deck is superb although it...

We spent 2 nights in unit #9 which is, like Unit # 1 set well away from the other units. The design of the unit delighted us with big sliding doors and windows. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was a pleasure to be in the unit as it responds so well to the environment with plenty or...

The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable and the kitchen is small but has it all. The braai facilities are very practical and conveniently situated We noticed a smell of gas in our unit when we arrived. We informed Vusi who fixed a leaking tap immediately and investigated the gas problem. Leaving doors and windows open for a while and...
