Mbuluzi Game Reserve
Lonely Planet review
The small and privately owned Mbuluzi Game Reserve boasts a range of animals, including giraffes, zebras, hippos, antelope species and wildebeests. There have also been over 300 bird species recorded here. Several walking trails dot the reserve and make for a fun activity.
Accommodation here, in a choice of lovely five- or eight-person self-catering lodges, is more luxurious than at neighbouring Mlawula Nature Reserve. Some lodges have spacious verandahs and wooden viewing decks and are set on the Mlawula River.
Campsites are also available near the Mbuluzi River on the reserve’s northern side. The turn-off for Mbuluzi is the same as for Mlawula; the reserve entrance is about 300m from the turn-off and on the left.
