Phophonyane Falls Ecolodge

★ ★ ★ ★

The Phophonyane Ecolodge is in the north-western region of Swaziland. The Lodge makes for the ideal weekend or overnight stop as it is easily accessible from routes between Mpumalanga and Zululand and Maputo and Johannesburg.

Romantic pathway lights lead guests from the restaurant to their rooms. The restaurant serves delicious home cooked meals and sundowners can be enjoyed on the veranda overlooking the valley. Because the lodge is on a 510ha nature reserve in Swaziland, many hiking trails wind through the forest and waterways to reach the mighty Phophonyane Falls.

A variety of different room types Phophonyane is available for guests to choose from. Each unit is situated in the sub-tropical forest, offering the ultimate in privacy and luxury. The Driftwood Restaurant offers guests a romantic African ambience with high ceilings and spectacular views. The dining venue serves an a-la-carte menu which includes traditional Swazi traditional dishes and a selection of fine South African wines.
