The chalets all have air-conditioning, mini bar with tea & coffee making facilities.

The WWF have recently leased 3 black rhinos in Esikhothenis care as part of their ongoing project to protect this species from extinction.

Dining at Esikhotheni is a indulgence. Long lazy breakfasts, and delectable elegant dinners are the order of the day - all carefully prepared and beautifully presented by the resident chef. Meals are either served in the traditional boma or in the lodge. Each afternoon guests enjoy scrumptious high-tea a selection of mouth watering sweet and savoury treats before embarking on the sunset activities.
