Ezulwini Billy's Lodge
is located in the Balule Reserve in the Kruger area to the Northeast of South Africa.

+ large private reserve
+ important conservation project
+ full range of wildlife
+ open to the Kruger National Park
+ high quality lodge
+ owner hosted
+ good pool
+ low visitor traffic
+ off road driving
+ walking safari

Situated to the north of the reserve, this medium specification lodge has pleasant modern public areas which include a nice pool and a waterhole hide at the end of a very long boardwalk. Guest accommodation is in six very large and pleasant chalets.

Activities are centred around vehicle and walking safari. There are no fences between here and the main reserve, ensuring that Balule is part of the main Kruger ecosystem.

- partially fenced reserve
- proximity to human habitation
- proximity to other lodges
- clunky rather large lodge
- private residences on the reserve
- only accessible from the main R40 road
- reclaimed farmland
- not particularly wild
- rather tame and over-managed
- lacks game density

One main downside is that the Balule Reserve as a whole does not really feel like pristine wilderness, it being the aggregation of many smaller private plots.

Ezulwini Billy's Lodge is definitely the best offering in this family and a good indication that the area is on the way up.
