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.... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I recently spent a night at this camp whilst conducting business in the park. Got to see a male lion from the viewing deck overlooking the black umfolozi River. The camp was rustic and is in need of some TLC. Some items were missing from the self catering kitchen and with improved management the experience could have been better. The... More

Stayed 1 night in chalet number 1. Very nice camp overlooking the river, small & quiet. 8 chalets + 2 soon to be opened. Only 1 or 2 chalets have a view, like number 1 some look into the bush which is also appealing. The chalet was clean inside, kitchen very well equipped with crockery & cutlery, gas oven/hob, large...

We stayed for two nights and must say it was better than expected. The room was clean and comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped with what we needed, except there is no microwave and with an infant it would have been handy. The bathroom was clean but the shower can definitely use a proper clean up. We had hyena at... More

We had hoped to stay two nights but there was no water and we asked to move to Hilltop which was fine but not the same as this camp. On recommendations from friends we booked this camp and we were not disappointed. The chalets are good, kitchens adequate and I was looking forward to a shower with a view of... More

Our family joined us here for 3 nights from the UK and they weren't disappointed. We were laden with food and drink for our time here as you have to bring all your own provisions.
