If you are travelling down fro Satara in the Kruger to Johannesburg, it's quite a long drive and a long day. We all found it relaxing to overnight at Emnotweni. Very comfortable rooms, good food and the security is good.

I had an excellent experience and stay in the Southern Sun Emnotweni. The room was spaceous, neat and the WiFi network was also fast. I did not sit for the breakfast though because I only slept for one night and had to rush to the airport since I was flying early

We are from Swaziland and the family went Christmas shopping. From checking in to leaving was all just fine and very friendly staff. The hotel is close to he shops safe and quit. The rooms were nice and the children also enjoyed as we were in a family room. I will recommend this hotel to any one.
