Sister Camp to Billy's Lodge, Ezulwini River Lodge lies low on the banks of the Olifants River with a timber viewing deck under sweeping fig and mahogany trees making it a nature lover's paradise.

Ezulwini River Lodge is located in the Balule Nature Reserve, which makes up part of the Greater Kruger Park. Sharing unfenced borders with the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and the Kruger National Park, Balule enjoys the free-flow of wildlife throughout its traverse, putting Ezulwini River Lodge in the heart of it all. The reserve is about a 45-minute drive from Hoedspruit - the safari capital of Limpopo.

Cradled on the banks of the great Olifants River, beneath towering fig and natal mahogany trees lies Ezulwini River Lodge. Ezulwini, meaning ‘place of paradise’, remains true to its name in the secretive construction of River Lodge, which is a bird-lovers utopia, and a wildlife wonderland for all of the Balule beasts. The great leafy branches of the riverine forest drape over the viewing deck providing shade and quiet for lazy afternoons at River Lodge.

The outdoor lounge, swimming pool and inviting bar area are equipped for comfort, while night-time lanterns turn the place into bush dining bliss. Big tusker elephants of the Kruger Park come to feed on the trees in the riverbed, while resident lions can be heard calling into the night.
