Jozini Tiger Lodge and Spa is situated along the banks of Lake Jozini, the hotel is well positioned overlooking the Jozini Dam with views of the Lebombo Mountains.
The Lodge is ideal for a weekend getaway, corporate offsite events and weddings. Some of the leisure activities available include fishing, game viewing, boat cruises, kayaking, hiking and birding trails – perfect for the outdoor enthusiast.
The lodge has a restaurant that offers – breakfast, lunch, supper. A lounge, bar, Boma, conference and wedding venue, pool, children’s playroom, Mangwanani spa, gymnasium and not so great WiFi – this seems to be a universal problem for most hotels.
The lodge has 70 Rooms
- 44 Classic Rooms, 21 Family Lofts, 3 Deluxe Rooms and 2 Executive Suites.
- All rooms at the lodge are fully air-conditioned and are en-suite, with both bath and shower facilities.
We stayed in the Executive Suite, which has a kitchen, a mini lounge and a large balcony. The room has ample space and extremely private.
The only negative thing about this room is the open plan bathroom/bedroom layout, I’m not a fan of a toilet that does not have a door. An element of privacy for the toilet is a must.
Hotel Rates start from R825-00 Per Person Sharing
The iSilo Conference Centre is capable of accommodating up to 250 delegates and can be split into three smaller conference rooms.
The Lodge also has three smaller boardrooms – Nyawo, Gumede & Myeni, located above the Conference Centre. I later learned that the boardrooms are named after the tribal families governing the local area.
Great value for money, a great place to be at when you want to get away from the hectic hustle and bustle of urban living.
The hotel location is ideal for people wanting to explore the Elephant Coast (Zululand – KZN),it is surrounded by a host of World Heritage Sites and Nature Reserves.
- If you travel south you will reach Isimangaliso Wetland Park (previously known as the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park ) and Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve.
- Travel North to Ndume Game Reserve, home to the last wild elephants of Southern Africa or view traditional fish kraals at Kosi Bay.
- Travel East to Sodwana Bay, famous for diving and fishing – a nature lover’s paradise..
A 4×4 is a MUST especially if you want to fully explore the area.
