From R2450 PPS



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. Experience the unique richness that this peaceful part of Africa has to offer. 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...

The Falls Lodge has a central complex built on raised wooden platforms with spacious verandas. The facilities include a pleasant dining area, a comfortable lounge, an indoor pub, a shady terrace and a swimming pool. The large lounge leads onto a spacious viewing deck which is built over the sloping riverbank. This veranda 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. Vegetarian meals are prepared on request. In fine weather, dinner or a South African 'braai' (barbeque) is served in the Boma. There is also a fully equipped health and beauty centre. You are invited to stay with us and enjoy our beautiful chalets or for the romantically inclined there is the spectacular Safari Suite. You can base your safari at our Luxury Tented Lodge which provides the true spirit of Africa.

The Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve is host to an impressive variety of wildlife. Take a journey with us and discover the richness and diversity of this unique part of the world we call Paradise, where "rush-hour" is unheard of.

The unique ecosystems of riverine, wetland, Lowveld Bushveld and montane grassland provide the diversity and large quantity of bird and animal species. The reserve is home to the Big Five, cheetah, hippo and a vast number of plains game. For ornithologists and bird-lovers, Mkuze Falls and its Wetlands are an absolute must. There are more than 400 species of birds in the area. More specifically the reserve is home to the Fish Eagle, Giant Kingfisher, Narina Trogon and the spectacular Purple-crested Lourie to mention a few.
