                                      Although Covid has hit everyone extremely hard especially the tourism industry I can honestly say that the owners of Emahlateni are a joy to visit. They are super friendly and even though all the exotic animals were not there at the time of our visit we were still treated to a grand affair with some if the animals that were still accommodated there. We used the farm as a convenient stopover to St Lucia and what a scene greeted us when we woke up in the morning between the mountains having arrived in the dark the previous evening. My wife who was celebrating her birthday was treated to a specia...

                                      One night in transit - be sure to get good directions. Lodge is one minute from Swaziland border! They have farm animals wandering about - a number of friendly dogs too. New World Monkey house may not be your cup of tea though (thus the 4 star not 5). Hosts do everything they can to make your stay perfect. We had them do us breakfast which meant we could be on the way early. Rooms are in a row so an end one is much quieter and more private.

                                      We spent one night at Emahlathini Farm on our way to Mozambique. The cottage was clean and comfortable and we felt at home. The road leading to the farm, about 20km, is a bit bad but manageable, the beautiful scenery along the way  way makes up for it!

                                      Nice accommodation in a picturesque farm. Wonderful landscapes around. The room was comfortable. Great dinner and good breakfast. We enjoyed our stay very much.
