We were a group of 10 people incl. a baby, coming straight from the airport after travelling from Europe to experience a real African atmosphere, with game drives included. Some of us had never been in Africa before. We occupied all the rooms in the main building + a rondavel, and were very satisfied with the rooms. Already the first...

Mziki is the perfect getaway for a family with kids (especially young kids). The privacy of a small lodge with a family atmosphere, great management, staff and rangers. It finds the perfect balance between the luxury of a fullboard game lodge with really good food and very professional game drives, and the down to earth boma with a real camp...

Dear Tim, Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. The elephants, although one would say they are so big, can still be a challenge to see sometimes, as the bush is very green and partly thick. Please keep in touch and we hope to see you again at Mziki....

Hi, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We look forward to returning. The staff - including Sean - were fantastic. Maybe think about extending to have spa facilities. Mziki could continue to grow as you are on to something good there. See you soon. Ray and Genee
