Beneath the ancient Lubombo Mountains, nestled on the banks of the majestic Royal Jozini Dam, lies Kujabula Lodge. A little piece of paradise in the Royal Jozini Private Game Reserve. Kujabula Lodge offers accommodation with an emphasis on class and comfort in a bush-style environment. We are able to accommodate up to 20 guests on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis in 5 exclusive log chalets, with en suite bathrooms.
Each lodge has its own private deck, where our guests can enjoy a sundowner, or alternatively join us in the main lodge at the bar. Sunset from the deck overlooking Jozini dam is truly a memorable experience. Hot days and nights can be enjoyed lazing in the pool and or sitting around the fire in the boma taking in the sounds of an African night.
The lodge has its own marina where visitors are treated to regular views of hippos and crocodiles. The reserve is also host to a number of elephants, leopard, impala, blue wildebeest, zebra, nyala, warthog, kudu, giraffe and waterbuck, not to mention over 450 bird species. Jozini dam is a tiger fishing paradise and the ferocious game fish will keep you occupied for hours on end.
The lodge offers tiger fishing, game viewing and cruises on its hippo proof boat, capable of accommodating up to 12 people comfortably. It also offers facilities to host conferences, presentations, team-building and other functions.

Africa is known for a rich history and diverse culture. Experience Africa and you never want to go home. Africa is one of the oldest continents in the world and the rich culture test you all if you look at the pictures. eSwatini (Swaziland), officially the Kingdom of Swaziland (Swazi: Umbuso weSwatini), is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, bordered to the north, south and west by South Africa, and to the east by Mozambique. The nation, as well as its people, are named after the 19th century king Mswati II.
Swaziland is a small country, no more than 200 kilometres (120 mi) north to south and 130 kilometres (81 mi) east to west. The western half is mountainous, descending to a lowveld region to the east. The eastern border with Mozambique and South Africa is dominated by the escarpment of the Lebombo Mountains. The climate is temperate in the west, but may reach 40 °C (104°F) in summer in the lowveld. Rainfall occurs mainly in the summer and may reach 2 metres (6.6 ft) in the west.
The area that Swaziland now covers has been continuously inhabited since prehistory. Today, the population is primarily ethnic Swazis whose language is Swati, though English is spoken as a second language. The Swazi people descend from the southern Bantu who migrated from Central Africa in the 15th and 16th centuries.
The Anglo-Boer War saw the United Kingdom make Swaziland a protectorate under its direct control. Swaziland gained independence in 1968. Swaziland is a member of the Southern African Development Community, the African Union, and the Commonwealth of Nations. The head of state is the king, who appoints the prime minister and a small number of representatives for both chambers of parliament. Elections are held every five years to determine the majority of the representatives. A new constitution was adopted in 2005.
Some 75% of the population are employed in subsistence farming, and 60% of the population live on less than the equivalent of US$1.25 per day. Swaziland's main trading partner is South Africa, and its currency is pegged to the South African rand. Many of Swaziland's peasants make their living by growing marijuana, which is sold to South Africa.
Swaziland's economic growth and societal integrity is highly endangered by its disastrous HIV epidemic, to an extent where the United Nations Development Program has written that if it continues unabated, the "longer term existence of Swaziland as a country will be seriously threatened." The infection rate in the country is unprecedented and the highest in the world at 26.1% of adults, and over 50% of adults in their 20s. According to the CIA World Factbook, Swaziland has the lowest life expectancy in the world, with an average life expectancy of only 31.88 years.

What a little piece of heaven. Thank-you so much for a wonderful few days at your lodge. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help and added to our unforgettable stay.
The rooms were clean and well laid out. The water was hot, perfect for the huge luxury baths in each room. The food was worthy of 5 stars and the bar very well stocked. We didn't use the well placed pool as it was winter but I can imagine the views in the late afternoon, while sipping on a cocktail, cooling down after a hot day must be fantastic.
Sadly the tiger fish weren't biting but the HUGE herd of elephant that came down to drink not 40 meters from us made up for that and made our day on the water so special. That incredible sunset followed by a relaxing evening around the firepit certainly added to the experience. And those stars...millions of stars!
My family and I were so sad to leave but we'll definitely be back. Thanks again to you and your incredible staff.
Until next time.

Heaven in the Bush with luxury accommodation. You are spoilt with animal life that visit the watering pools within close distance whilst you cool off in the swimming pool or enjoy a sundowner on the deck. A must for families or a romantic get away. Everyday is a new adventure and discovery whether you are enjoying the game rides being entertained by the elephants or tiger fishing on the Jozini dam.
