"Ezulwini Game Lodges - Paradise on Earth"

The Balule Game Reserve, situated in South Africa’s Limpopo Province borders the Kruger National Park in the Greater Kruger area. The Olifants River runs through and around the western side of the Balule Nature Reserve. At 430 meters above sea level Balule offers an impressive view of the African landscape.

Balule's birdlife boasts a collection of five hundred varied species.

Three hundred and eighty known tree species and of course the Big Five and an assortment of animals roam undeterred, to and from the Kruger National Park.

Game drives in the Balule Nature Reserve offer amazing sightings.

"Ezulwini" translated from Zulu means "paradise" or "heaven". Appropriately named if describing the Ezulwini Game Lodges.


All three of the Ezulwini Lodges comprise of a diverse ecology spanning across from the River Lodge upon the banks of the Olifants River to the Paradise Lodge on the lip of the gorge, also on the Olifants River. The luxurious African bush aroma engulfs Billy's Lodge and inspires this near perfect bushveld.

Billy's Luxury Lodge provides:

  • Thatched accommodation
  • Twin bed chalets
  • En-suite bathrooms
  • Intimate living area
  • Air conditioning and Overhead fans
  • Tea & Coffee making facilities
  • Mini-bars
  • Insect-proof screening
  • DSTV televisions

The lodge accommodates up to fourteen guests.

Five rugged log cabins and a luxury ox-wagon tent make up what is Paradise Camp.

Perched on the top of a hill Paradise Camp is the perfect luxury hideaway. Each cabin has an outdoor shower and toilet attached.

Delectable meals can be consumed under the stars surrounded by beautiful sites of the Bush.


Big Five are easily visible as well as the shy yet curious hippo families present themselves along and within the Olifants River.

Rare sightings of the civet cat and honey badger, make for a memorable experience in the Balule Nature Reserve.
