Formally the home of Mickey Reilly, one of Swaziland's earliest white settlers and a highly entrepreneurial man, the main building was built of stone in exchange for an ox-wagon in the early 1900's.
The house has remained in the family and has recently been transformed into a unique hilltop lodge tastefully decorated in keeping with its colonial roots. Notwithstanding the necessary subtle additions and renovations, the house still stands as it was built almost a century ago.
Reilly's Rock is situated on the Mlilwane Hill within the tranquil safety of Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, approximately 3 km from the Rest Camp and 1.5 km from the Sangweni Entrance Gate.
The lodge is surrounded by beautiful natural gardens and terraced lawns, with a unique panoramic view of the Ezulwini Valley, complete with game-studded plains, Royal Residences and the distant sacred Mdzimba Mountain range. Tame animals wander across the lawns, bush babies pratically own the place, and the Swazi national bird, the Purple-crested Turaco, drinks daily at the natural rock bird bath.
