Mziki Nature Reserve
About Mziki Lodge
Mziki Safari Lodge is nestled beneath the shady Karees in the heart of Mziki Private Game Reserve, just two hours’ drive from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg. The Lodge offers a natural, affordable haven for eco-travellers seeking an authentic, unaffected encounter with the African bush.
Set on 12 500 acres of prime malaria-free bushveld, Mziki Private Game Reserve is home to three of the Big Five, and over 50 species of mammals and 372 species of birds, making it one of the best birding areas in South Africa.
Perfect for families with a range of engaging activities for children of all ages, Mziki Safari Lodge offers a genuine home-away-from-home, individualistic bush experience combined with charming South African hospitality.
Enjoy luxury accommodation, each room individually decorated to reflect the natural bushveld environment, excellent local and international cuisine and days spent admiring the great African outdoors from the comfort of the Outdoor Safari Lounge and crystal-clear swimming pool, as the squirrels scamper hurriedly past and children play contentedly on the jungle gym set within beautiful, lush indigenous gardens.
Watch as the eland compete with brazen guinea fowl for a space at the nearby waterhole or relax on a sundowner cruise on the mighty Hex River which weaves its way through the reserve and into the magnificent Vaalkop dam.
Mziki Safari Lodge is yours to enjoy at your pace, a relaxed environment for both young and old, extending the true hand of friendship to all those who visit it.
