The reserve is fabulous .. good roads..the hides are amazing and we spent lots of time sitting in them and viewing the comings and goings of the game. The chalet was basic but clean and spacious with all the necessary equipment. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful...the Fig Forest Walk with Patrick was amazing and a real "must do". As...

We had 3 separate tents. Some were better than others but all have everything you need. The road works are finished and all the hides are renovated and looking good. The rains have been and so there is plentiful water and grazing for the animals, this does mean you really have to drive miles for hope of an encounter with...

Great ecperience being out in the bush without other humans in view. We were visited daily by buck and tortoises. In the evening a wild bushy tailed cat, bush pig and bush babies were our guests. On route of our game drives, Mkuze have super hides. Saw plenty from the safety of the hide. Staff were friendly and did attend...

We stayed over in the safari tents in this game reserve, and this was not the first time (and thank goodness we stayed only ONE night) The tent was shoddy and no fresh linen was provided in the tent. The electrical wiring was done by an unprofessional person as it presented a safety hazard. Blankets were old and full of...

We stayed in the Bush Lodge. 4 seperate chalets with a kitchen and lounge overlooking a pan with a private chef and game warden for escorted walks. Unfortunately, due to the drought, the pan had no water but it must be amazing when there is water. The Ranger took us on 2 walks of over 2 hours each which were...

Expecting to be woken by birds and sounds of nature but this was not to be. From sunrise the loud voices of people laughing and talking carelessly, heavy vehicles and the loading of tools and equipment in a fashion that shows no regard for visitors, could be heard throughout the camp. Peace only descends late afternoon when work on the...

The safari tents at Mantuma were a wonderful find. Mkuze is quiet and peaceful with no tour buses (in actual fact I haven't seen a game vehicle in 2 days, although I know they are here). The camp at Mantuma feels a bit forgotten, which is great if you are looking for tranquility, but not so much if you were...

Just spent a night in a 4sleeper tent. Fun layout..2 bedrooms ensuite and separate open kitchen. As soon as it was dark the bushbabies arrived, leaping all over the kichen and tents and drinking the few drops from the kitchen tap. Super-tame nyala right outside the tent. Tents have everything you need. The fridge light came on so we thought...

I Spent 3 nights in Mkuze in the rest huts, the Huts were OK and we had everything we needed, the reserve was good with some great mammal and bird hides that have recently been renovated and upgraded, we had good birdwatching and game viewing in Mkuze, there are also some great photographic opportunities from the Kumasinga Hide that overlooks...

Not knowing what to expect having travelled all the big parks in SA and Zimbabwe we were blown away by the sheer awesomeness of Mkuze. On the first evening a long wait at the waterhole was rewarded by an incredible sighting of an entire pride of Lion coming down to drink and then giving us a fine demonstration of pride...
