Royal Jozini Private Game Reserve is situated in Eswatini (Swaziland) – one of southern Africa’s best kept secrets, and is fast becoming renowned as a popular getaway for those who love being immersed in nature. The reserve is ideally located just 5 hours from Johannesburg and 4 hours from Durban and offers spectacular views of the Lubombo Mountains and Lake Jozini.

The 14,000 hectare reserve is home to a wealth of game, prolific bird life and the opportunity to go “Elephanting”, tiger fishing, on self-driven or pre-booked game drives, boat cruises or to simply relax in the African bushveld with a book in hand, for a much deserved break. 

Sweet Thorn self-catering lodge is a family bush home, where stunning views of Lake Jozini and the Lebombo Mountains can be enjoyed from the patios. Set with tasteful furnishings and décor, this home is just 400 metres from the lake on a slight rise.

Accommodating up to 8 adults or 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children – Sweet Thorn offers three bedrooms and three bathrooms (two are en-suite), with an annex off the main bedroom with two bunk beds, a single bed and cot. There is also an extra twin room on the mezzanine level, with extra bunk beds. 

The open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge lead onto an expansive balcony, perfect for alfresco dining in the bush. There is also a TV (guests are welcome to bring their own DSTV Decoder and Smart card)

This lodge is fitted with solar, battery backup for lighting and gas for hot water and cooking and has its own boma area. There is a charcoal braai fireplace and a Jacuzzi to make the most of this African experience!


The game is abundant, and includes elephant, buffalo, leopard, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, water buck, kudu, jackal, hyena, crocodile and hippo. One of many memorable outings is game viewing, by boat, on Lake Jozini. Just close your eyes and imagine floating along, sipping sundowners with your soulmate by your side, and an uncut view of Africa at its finest, all along the shoreline. 


You have to see it to believe it!
