Truly spectacular! We only stayed one night in the beehive (recommend that!), which we regret afterwards. Wanted to stay longer, the surroundings are like a tropical rainforrest, hiking trails for hours with beautifull waterfalls. During this time of the year its a bit smaller though, but still worthwile. Staff really friendly, dined at the fireplace, spectacular views over the mountains. One of the best places we visited in Swaziland!

Everything was awesome. The place we stayed was a luxury tented lodge and there was a lot of confort inside the tent. There was an heater, the bathroom was a very big one, and the bed was quite good. Moreover the view of the falls was perfect for us.
The diner and breakfast were amazing !

Highly recommend this lodge to anyone who can appreciate originality, taste and traditional comfort at its very best. My wife and I stayed in beehive 2, arguably one of our cosiest nites out here in Southern Africa. Daytime actitivites focus on scenic walks along the river and waterfall, with plenty of natural pools inviting hikers for a swimm. Otherwise, lodge features also comfortable reading rooms, outdoor terraces and TV room. Staff very dedicated and friendly. Very eager to come back soon.
