Bonamanzi Game Reserve, a private South African Big 4 game reserve, safari lodge and natural heritage site, is also one of the largest private wildlife and birding parks in Zululand. With over 4000 hectares of pristine African bush to explore, each day is different - whether on a game viewing safari, sighting rare African birds, tracking elephants or joining in with the Zulu dancers around the campfire.
Bonamanzi is not only about wild Africa, it's also about out-of-this-world African safari lodge accommodation, and with a variety of options to choose from, guests are spoiled for choice.

Whichever accommodation option you prefer you are assured of the ultimate in service and luxury.

Guests can fly into Durban for the Bonamanzi private game reserve and safari lodge experience. Local Zulu guides will introduce you to African game both big and small and some of the most endangered and rare bird species in South Africa. Bonamanzi is a Zulu name which means: “Look! Water!” Take advantage of water-based activities like a bird cruise down the Hluhluwe River and see flamingo, pelican, hippos and crocodiles at the adjoining World Heritage site of Lake St. Lucia. If you want to link your Zululand experience to a visit to the Big Five game viewing areas of the Kruger Park and Swaziland, plan to visit Bonamanzi en route to Durban and the Cape. Bonamanzi is an hour and a half’s drive from the Golela border post with Swaziland.
