Mkuzi Game Reserve

Mkuzi game reserve is situated in northern Zululand, approximately 335km from Durban along the main north coast road. The reserve was established on 15 February 1912, and covers approximately 40 000ha. More than 380 bird species have been recorded at Mkuzi, including fish eagles, kingfishers and a host of ducks and waders. The bird-watching hide at Nsumo pan is a highlight of the reserve. On game-viewing drives and guided walks through a wide variety of habitats, you may see rhino, giraffe, zebra, kudu and impala. Accommodation includes cottages, bungalows and huts, as well as caravan/camping sites.
