Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was sceptical because I never visited Swadini before...but I loved the stay there. Clean chalets and cleaned everyday. I enjoyed my stay and will most definitely return there! Next time I'm bringing my whole family!

We spent a few days camping here recently. As it was out of season, the campsite was quiet. The setting is stunning, with huge trees, beautiful mountain views, and lovely well-kept lawns. The ablution blocks are clean and well-maintained, with great water pressure in the showers. Will definitely stay here again.

Our stay at Swadini was awesome and we enjoyed every moment of it. Even though the baboons got up to mischief sometimes we know we were in their territory. The staff is always helpful and friendly and we commend them for that. What a fantastic resort.

Arrived on 2 January 2024. At reception we were received with a warm smile. Were allowed in to enjoy the recreational facilities even though we were 2hrs earlier for check-in. When checking in everything was above our expectations.

Overall experience was ok. The location views and landscape are exceptional and allot to do around the area. Make sure you prepare yourself the camp site is far from the pool area and our camp site was far from the ablution facility. The signal is very poor and needed to go to the swimming pool to get WhatsApp and email messages. The overall cleanliness was disappointing. No under roof swimming pool or super tube,heated and kiddies pool not always warm and pools were dirty and even smelly. Pool area needs urgent maintenance and upgrade. They are a bit cheaper than ATKV resorts and you can certainly see why... Overall experience, we will not soon visit again

Lots of maintenance is required. From kitchen to bathrooms (tiles, taps, bath tubs/showers) , Old furniture. 2 swimming pools not enough for everyone. Kiddies pool too small as well. There was a water pipe burst during my stay. Went for 2 days without water. Please have backup plans for such days.

One of the best resort I have visited till now. The receptionists were really helpful and friendly. The room was well equipped and the service was excellent. The location of our room was absolutely perfect. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment, especially in the morning . The view of the sunrise from that point was mesmerizing. I must say the location of the resort is at best place of Mpumalanga. Our stay at the resort was just for three days. The staff were amazing , so friendly and helpful . They made our stay so enjoyable and comfortable. Mr Richard, unfortunately we didn't know which department are you from. Your an asset of the resort, your the only one who always ask if everything is fine, keep up the good work. Mr Geoffrey, the security guy, he help us with direction to the Three rondavels, really appreciate. The lady who was cleaning our charlet, unfortunately I didn't take her name, she was so helpful, thank you mama. Excellent hospitality. Me and my family we will definitely come back. What I enjoy a lot is swimming and waking Up at 5, seated out side, watching Baboons and reflection of the sun on the mountain. Thank you for everything guys.

We initially booked for two months and ended up staying for four. The resort is well run and all their staff, no matter their function on the resort are excellent and know what to do. They all go out of their way to help you and you quickly feel like part of the family.

Only 2 pools for the whole property. Pools very far from camping if u select a campsite at section 4, 5 or 6. Not much more to do. And lots of thorns so wear shoes. Almost no cell reception. Baboons and monkeys can be a problem.
