Situated between the Kruger National Park and the Zululand Coast - the same Africa, a different world!

The Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve

is beautifully situated in the heart of historic Zululand in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. Mkuze Falls is one of only two Private Game Reserves in the region where you can view the 'Big 5' - lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, elephant and for bird lovers, nearly 400 species of birds are resident.

For those seeking a little adventure, there is the magnificent Maputaland coast to explore and fishing is available on Pongolapoort Dam. The Zululand Battlefields are in close proximity and there are many sites of historical importance to visit. The Reserve is located on land that once formed part of the 'Boer Republic', created when the pioneer leader, Piet Retief, bought the land from Dingaan, half- brother of the great Zulu King, Shaka.

It is a place of pure tastes and simple delights, celebrating the thrill of nature. This is the place with the sound and beauty of water falling... This seeps into your soul... You are invited to stay with us and enjoy our beautiful Falls Lodge or base your safari at our Tented Lodge (situated near to a tributary of the Mkuze River). Experience the unique richness that this peaceful part of Africa has to offer.

Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve is currently 10,000 hectares in extent and will soon will be extended to incorporate other properties. Besides lion, elephant, white rhino, buffalo, hippo, cheetah, crocodile, spotted hyena and giraffe, numerous species of antelope may also be spotted.

Safaris or game drives take place in the early morning, late afternoon and early evening. The game drives are led by experienced game rangers and trained nature guides. Guests are encouraged to involve themselves in the safari experience by asking questions and interacting with their ranger. You will find that the expertise of the rangers and guides is invaluable as they have an amazing ability to spot game in situations where the untrained eye sees nothing.

Mkuze Falls only admits a limited number of safari vehicles to traverse the reserve at any one time - no 'Bush-Rush' hours! 'Take five' in the heart of this beautiful landscape, enjoy your sundowners and savour the essence of Africa!

For ornithologists and bird lovers, Mkuze Falls is absolute heaven. There are more than 400 species of birds in the area, many of which can be observed in the Mkuze Falls Wetlands. This wealth of birdlife provides hours of interest for the keen birdwatcher.

The reserve is home to the fish eagle, giant kingfisher and many other bird species, especially the Narina Trogon and the purple-crested Lourie.

Accommodation

Mkuze Falls Game Lodge

5 star grading by South African Tourism Council

situated on a hill above the Falls consists of eight thatched chalets, a safari suite and a central complex, which are built on raised wooden platforms and have spacious verandas. These private balconies provide stunning views of the Falls or the perennial Mkuze River to the hills beyond.

The centrally located facilities include a pleasant dining area, a comfortable lounge, an indoor pub, a shady terrace and a swimming pool. There is also a fully equipped, air conditioned conference room catering for 18 participants.

The large lounge leads onto a spacious viewing deck which is built over the sloping riverbank. This verandah provides panoramic views of the winding Mkuze River and the wild, untamed landscape beyond. In the heat of the day, you can relax under the shady palm trees and take a refreshing swim in the sparkling pool. In the evenings, enjoy some lively entertainment provided by the energetic, traditional Zulu dancers.

Highly experienced kitchen and waiting staff have been trained to indulge and delight the most discerning guests. The menu varies daily and features a host of South African dishes including local venison specialities during the hunting season. Vegetarian meals are prepared on request. In fine weather, dinner or a South African 'braai' (barbecue) is served in the Boma.

Chalets

The characteristic thatched, twin-bedded chalets are spacious and each bed is fitted with its own mosquito net. Each chalet has its own entrance and is equipped with telephone, air conditioning, overhead fan and mini-bar. Luxurious en-suite facilities offer a bath, toilet, secluded outside shower and plunge pool.
Each chalet is completely private although panoramic vistas of the river and beyond can be enjoyed from some of the adjoining decks.

The The Your

The Safari Suite

The Mkuze Falls Safari Suite consists of a spacious living and sleeping area, both with views up and downstream the Mkuze River and the waterfall. This suite has a small but comfortable and well-equipped kitchen and, of course, all the features of the other chalets like fans, air-conditioning and en-suite facilities. The adjoining private outside shower and splash pool area is spacious and secluded. The Safari Suite also has its own outside terrace with a unique view over the river. A better place to enjoy your intimate dinner will be hard to find.

Tented Lodge

The facilities include a lounge, bar, boma and swimming pool. The luxurious and beautifully decorated East African safari tents enhance your bush experience in comfort and style. Each tent has double / twin beds, a mini bar, airconditioning and overhead fan, mosquito nets and en-suite facilities including a Victorian-style, free-standing bath and an inside / outside shower.
Starlit evenings are enjoyed in the boma and the sounds of the Zulu drumbeat beckon the pure spirit of Africa. The evening air is broken by the call of the Night Jar, the sounds of Zebra in the distance, the unexpected roar of the Lion and the trumpet of the Elephant. The pure sounds of Africa!

The Bush Camp

Four canvas tents accommodate eight guests, each tent with two stretchers, bedding, hand wash facilities and towels. Two ablution facilities consist of a screened area - a canvas bag filled with water for your bush shower and a portable toilet.
Guests need only bring the food they would like to eat, as a private chef will prepare all the meals requested from his tented kitchen! Dine around a campfire at night with background music played by the crickets and nightjars, lunch in the shade of the trees and enjoy a hearty breakfast beside the river! A field guide will not only take you tracking some of the Big Five, but also share his vast knowledge of the fauna and flora in this reserve! Plains game is abundant and birders will be kept busy from dawn to dusk with more than 340 species of birds to identify whilst on expedition!
A larger tent is available for guests to store their rucksacks and other luggage; this will also serve as the dining room should the weather change for the worst!

Please note guests staying at the Bush camp must be between the age of 16 years and 60 years according to the safety and field guide requirements of walking in a Big Five Game Reserve. Guests over 60 years of age require a medical certificate declaring the person is fit and able to participate in this adventure.
