We stayed in a chalet while friends were camping and both accommodations were very good. The rooms in the chalets has aircon. Much needed for the heat. There are lots of kudus and baboons and monkeys and other animals on your doorstep and the pools are nice and big and heated. Just right for an amazing relaxing holiday. The entertainment...

You can only wake up to a wonderful view of the Drakensberg mountain at Swadini. Loved it and staff is friendly and helpful. It was peaceful and no where else can you see the stars more clearly than at Swadini. I hope that Forever Resorts invest more in the maintenance if the resort.

Been there for three days on a motorbike tour of the Lowveld. This must be one of the best views in any resort anywhere. Nestled between the Transvaal Drakensberg mountains it is a delightful place to stay over. The chalets is clean and the beds are good. We experienced the service as friendly and helpful.

We normally go to the Coast for our December holidays but thought we try something different and booked at Swadini Forever Resort. We enjoy camping, the outdoors, people and exploring new places. Firstly the Resort is very well kept and it has sooo much to offer! The nice pool area with music and pool games for the kids & adults!...

I had never even heard about this place but I was looking for a place to camp and found a hidden gem. I dont think I would like to be there on a busy week-end though and I dont think I would like to be involved in the entertainment side. But I found a lovely quiet and private camp site...

This place has always been one of our family favorites. Its close to home and relevant to go for a break away. Peaceful and tranquil. The rates are a little pricey now a days but it is great value for money. Worth while visiting this little gem.

I went to the resort to have something to eat early evening and was turned away by a lady at the reception. Only to find that she is lying because everyone else didn't know about her self imposed rule that doesn't permit guests to have dinner after 5pm. I was allowed back at the hotel after the owner of a...

Very neat and comfortable. Peaceful Resort, friendly staff. Good beds and linen. 2nd Room smelled of cigarette smoke - pity. Restaurant - good food, service. Value for money. Well convenience stocked store.

“The free standing Chalets (nr 54) very quite. Higher numbers - close to the Youth Centre - they can be noisy.”

“Chalets --far apart and very piecefull”

“The property is quite large to make sure you book close to the facilities, or be prepared for a drive or a 10-15m walk.”

“Try and get a chalet close to the central entertainment/pool area, otherwise it's a long walk or short drive. Otherwise bring bikes!”
