Reilly’s Rock Hilltop Lodge




₤ 55 (Pps)


Reilly's Rock Hilltop Lodge is a little piece of history all by itself. It lies in the Mlilwane Game Reserve and is the captivating former home of conservationist Ted Reilly. Enjoying commanding views of Mlilwane's game-studded plains, its atmosphere is one of complete peace and tranquility. The colonial homestead has a colourful pioneer history and has been sympathetically restored with great attention to period detail.


Accommodation at Reilly's Rock consists of six well furnished bedrooms including a charming cottage with two en suite bedrooms, a sitting room with fireplace and wraparound veranda - ideal for two couples travelling together. Reilly's Rock Hilltop Lodge doesn't aim to give you the latest in interior design or indeed cuisine, just simple country style bedrooms and country cooking. What it DOES give you is a real sense of Swaziland history.

Breakfast on the veranda, listening to the sounds of the birds, is a magical experience. The Mlilwane Game Reserve lies in the famous Ezulwini valley so guests at Reilly's Rock Hilltop Lodge can enjoy game-viewing in the reserve in their own rental car, or on foot or even on horse-back. You can also visit some of the famous Swazi craft markets, Mantegna Waterfalls and the Swazi Candle factory all nearby.

Interesting but comfortable

"Reilly’s was an interesting place but very comfortable and peaceful and we were only here one night. Food again was great and we were well looked after. Swaziland was probably more effort than it was worth just getting across the border however we did a bit more sightseeing on the way out and probably should have tried to see a local family or something. Nevertheless we had a great time. They had dinner outside around the fire which was really nice. "
