Ezulwini Billys Lodge
Balule Private Game Reserve, South Africa

Located in Balule Nature Reserve, Ezulwini Billy’s Lodge effortlessly pairs pristine wilderness views with superb game viewing opportunities.

Why We Love it and You Will Too

  • Just wait til’ you see those views― incredible from all angles. From the private suites, to the swimming pool, no matter where you are, you always feel 100% immersed in the beauty of the Balule bush. 
  • Raised timber walkways lead from the main lodge to a viewing deck overlooking a frequently visited waterhole. From here you can continue your game viewing even when you’re not out exploring the reserve.
  • If you’re looking for an intimate safari experience, access to Balule Game Reserve is regulated, which means you can beat the crowds during guided game drives. 
  • Love elephants? The lodge’s unique location near a seasonal riverbed makes it the perfect spot from which to witness herds of patrolling ellies that use this area as their official ‘road’. 
  • Signature facilities at this lodge also include a communal bar area, an indoor lounge, and an open-air boma. The wine cellar carved into a natural rock cave is also worth mentioning, especially for wine lovers.

Ezulwini Billy’s Lodge is well-positioned within Balule Game Reserve. This pristine and private concession shares an unfenced border with the Kruger, so there is never a shortage of animals to see, wandering into the area as and when they please.

Since Billy’s is located on the banks of a seasonal riverbed, it is frequently visited by grazing animals like zebra, bushbuck, kudu and impala (often followed by their predatory followers). It’s almost as though they make their way there just to visit you! And the views don’t end there...

Follow the path along the raised wooden walkway and you’ll find yourself at the viewing deck which overlooks a waterhole. This watery arena is just the spot for pre-dinner drinks before making your way to the traditional outdoor boma. Out here by the fire, you can bask in the grand sounds of African nightlife before ducking off to the comfort of your room after dinner and a nightcap.

With high, thatched roofs, and a generous element of space, Billy’s safari suites offer a comfortable stay with elements such as sun decks, plunge pools, and open-air showers. The added attention to detail and fine-tuned hospitality are truly hard to top.
