paradise in South Africa

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 are resident. Overlooking the Mkuze Waterfall, the lodge features 8 Luxurious Thatched Suites and 1 Safari Suite, accommodating guests in utmost comfort and style. All Suite 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! Taste South African food with a sophisticated flair under a star strewn sky or in the boma to the sounds of tribal dance and song.


Guests are invited to join the open vehicle safaris with experienced field guides and rangers. 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.
