The safari experience at Ezulwini is centred on twice daily game drives in the lush Balule Nature Reserve. Boasting the ‘Big 7', which is the Big 5 plus hippo and crocodile, and an abundance of birdlife and general game.

The reserve is part of the Greater Kruger and falls within its boundaries, so the flow of wildlife is unhindered. The vegetation is highly wooded, attracting all sorts of browsing animals, while the presence of the Olifants River attracts those water-loving birds.

Photography on game drives is encouraged, as is bird watching. The experience of a morning safari sees the bush coming to life with all the diurnal animals, while evening drives bear witness to the activity of hyenas, jackals, lions, and owls.
