Royal Jozini Private Game Reserve

Set in Eswatini’s lowveld, but on the slopes of the majestic Lubombo Mountains,  Royal Jozini is a private game reserve where investors have built private homes in the bush. Some of these are available, on a self catering basis, for people to enjoy this breathtaking reserve, with its 5 eco systems, pristine bushveld and wealth of animals.

With three of the big 5 – elephants, leopard and buffalo, as well as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, kudu, nyala and waterbuck to name a few, this is truly a nature lovers’ paradise.

In early springtime, the mountain slopes are awash with the creamy blossoms of the knobthorn trees, and then the new leaves appear on all the acacia, marula and other trees after the first rains and transform the landscape.  With rare bushveld (arid-veld) and rare veld grasses which have been lost to other parts of |Southern Africa, the fauna thrive here.

Royal Jozini is also set on the banks of the northern section of Lake Jozini –  where the Pongolapoort dam floods across the border into Eswatini – bringing birdlife into the wetland areas, and boating and sport fishing for both birders and fishermen who are enthusiasts!  Strictly catch and release for fish, this is the southern most part of the continent where tiger fish can be caught and there’s nothing like the thrill of having a tiger on your line!

And how amazing is it that almost 300 different types of birds have actually been spotted there.

The lodge homes at Royal Jozini mostly have four bedrooms and sleep 8 people, and range from comfortable and rustic, to ultra luxurious “Out of Africa” style.  They are spread around in the bush, either on the mountain side with spectacular views, in the bush hidden from neighbours, or on the lake shore.  There is also a tented camp, fully equipped, that sleeps 16 which is ideal for birding groups or fishermen. From budget to luxury, from couples to families to groups of friends, there is a bush home at Royal Jozini to suit every need.

Royal Jozini is Southern Africa’s best kept secret and is truly a jewel in the Kingdom’s crown.
