My family of six stayed at the Bulembu Lodge for eight nights this past summer (2016). I can hardly wait to return this next year. The accommodations FAR exceeded any of my hopes or expectations. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The meals at the lodge were delicious, too! Even my young kids loved the food and still talk... More

Bulembu is beautiful in every way. You can read up on the history and focus of the town - online or in other reviews. The lodge is one of the enterprises which contribute to the main mission of the town.. housing, educating, loving Swaziland's orphans.

We stopped here for lunch whilst visiting Bulembu as a group. Even though we hadn't booked they were able to accommodate us and provided a range of food. The pizza was particularly good. Bulembu is a village in north-west Swaziland that's being re-developed with community businesses (lovely honey) and helps to fund an orphanage. Well worth visiting, particularly as you're... More

So it's a very basic self-catering house, like the old colonial summerhouses - basic furniture, clean bathrooms, plenty of beds (if you're going with a large group), lovely fireplace (do take board games and/or movies to watch on projector/laptop - no TV). Utterly lovely garden, space for two cars' parking. Loved the sunrising! Appreciate they left actual dishwashing liquid! Doesn't... More
