I was in Swaziland for a conference and had a wonderful week at Mantenga Lodge. I stayed in one of the cosy cabins with a balcony. The staff was very friendly, service was excellent, the restaurant great. Will definitely return there.

We found the Mantegna Lodge to be a relaxing respite from a hectic vacation. The beds were comfortable and the service was friendly and professional. The food was exceptional. The breakfast was included and it was superb. We also had dinner one night and the Lamb Shank was exceptional.
