Trip Summary

Enjoy a 2-night Big Five safari in the Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve, KwaZulu Natal. All meals and twice daily game drives are included. 

Situated in the heart of Zululand in KwaZulu-Natal, Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve is one of only two Private Game Reserves in the region where you can view the ‘Big 5’ as well as nearly 430 species of birds. Overlooking the Mkuze Waterfall, the lodge features 8 luxurious thatched Chalets and 1 Safari Suite, accommodating guests in utmost comfort and style. All Chalets are built on raised wooden platforms and the spacious veranda of each unit provides fantastic views of the river, the waterfall and the surrounding hills.

The peace, scenery and style of the lodge allows for a calm atmosphere amidst the elegant decor. Relax in the spacious lounge, view animals from the wooden deck, sip cocktails in the swimming pool or recount your sightings of the day in the bar! 

Guests are invited to join the open vehicle safaris with experienced field guides and rangers who also conduct bird, bush and game walks on request. Enjoy two game drives daily in this Private Big Five Reserve, one in the early morning where our visitors will meet for coffee and tea before going out on an adventure, returning for a scrumptious breakfast. In the afternoon high tea is served in the lounge area, which boasts an array of delightful and delectable treats, after which you are invited to join the afternoon drive. This is an exciting time as the sun slowly slips away and you may be lucky to see some of the night creatures as they start to make an appearance. Your guide will find an ideal spot to enjoy a sundowner which is traditionally an African safari experience to listen to the sounds as night approaches and watch a beautiful sunset as the day ends. The game vehicles are comfortable and are at a height which presents good game viewing and ample opportunities for photography.

Game and bird walks are conducted professionally and safely bringing the bush alive in a close encounter with the knowledge of the guide. The unique ecosystems of riverine, wetland, lowveld bushveld and montane grassland provide the diversity and large quantity of bird and animal species, big and small.

A complimentary Wildlife & Birdlife Checklist booklet is handed out to guests to record their viewing on the game drives and walks, this has proven to be popular as a memento of their visit with us!
