About Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve
Big Five Private Game Reserve is a five star game lodge and luxury tented lodge. Situated between the Kruger National Park and the Zululand Coast, the same Africa, a different world. The Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve is located, beautifully 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, and 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.
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 specialties 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.
Safari: 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, one in the early morning and one in the afternoon.
Spa: The Spa centre is run by a qualified massage therapist and beautician and offers various treatments to be pampered in private at both lodges. Nothing could be more luxurious and indulgent than to have the stress expertly massaged out of your muscles.
