About Mkuze Falls Lodge

The Mkuze Falls Lodge is located along the northern bank of the Mkuze River, in the heart of KwaZulu Natal. Overlooking the Mkuze Waterfall, the lodge features eight luxuriously appointed thatched chalets and one safari suite, accommodating eighteen guests in utmost comfort and style. The thatched chalets and a central lodge complex are built on raised wooden platforms and provide stunning views of the falls, the Mkuze River and the hills beyond. Private plunge-pools and an outside shower provide a wild but intimate touch alongside the gratifying luxury of the air-conditioned bedroom.

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.

Location

The Mkuze Falls Big Five Private Game Reserve is beautifully situated in the heart of historic Zululand in the South African province of KwaZulu Natal. 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.

The Mkuze Falls Game Reserve is a haven to the African 'Big Five': lion, elephant, white and black rhino, cape buffalo and leopard. Cheetah, hippo, crocodile, spotted hyena, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra and numerous species of antelope are also resident in the reserve. The elusive Nyala occurs in greater numbers here, than anywhere else in the world.
