Esiweni Luxury Safari Lodge, South Africa


Overview

Esiweni Luxury Safari Lodge is a hidden jewel in one of the most beautiful private reserves in South Africa. Situated in the very discrete Nambiti Reserve, between Johannesburg and Durban, in the heart of Zulu land, this luxurious African lodge nestled at the top of a cliff hosts a maximum of 10 guests.

The five Esiweni suites overlook the Sunday River and Nambiti Reserve offering staggering views of the savannah and the bush as well as several relaxing areas for the “boma”, the bar, the beautiful terrace, the patio and the infinity pool. Staff provide service and attention at all times in order to ensure a memorable stay in the natural freedom of Africa.

At Esiweni, the combination of French gastronomy from the Parisian owners with the South-African heritage and international culinary experience of Chef John Roux create the best of both worlds.

Nambiti is the only reserve in the region which in addition to the "big five" has more than 40 other animal species, including black rhinoceros and cheetahs and 280 species of bird. Guests can adventure in the Nambiti Reserve at sunrise and sunset aboard an open air 4x4 allowing them to fully enjoy their safari in complete safety, accompanied by an experienced ranger.
