Situated between the Kruger National Park and the Zululand Coast - the same Africa, a different world!

The Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve is beautifully situated 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, 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.

Starlit evenings are enjoyed in the boma and the sounds of the Zulu drumbeat beckon the pure spirit of Africa.

The elegance of the tented design is reminiscent of a bygone era, beckoned by the freestanding Victorian bath in the en suite bathroom.  Each tent is completely private and well spaced apart, tucked into the bush providing an eco-friendly retreat. Each tent is air-conditioned and has a private game viewing deck with spectacular views of the lowveld bushveld and shimmering waters of the river where numerous antelope and other wildlife frequent.
