              I must say that it was unfortunate that we only stayed for just one night at Mtonjaneni because we really enjoyed our stay. The service was great, the food was delicious and our room was clean. We also learnt a lot about the KZN history at the museum so we walked away with a bit of knowledge which was a bonus.

              It was awesome, the staff was friendly, Sifiso and Sne gave us a very warm welcome. The food was eye catching and so delicious, we miss their breakfast already, the view of the lodge is beautiful!
