Mkhuze Game Reserve is a quaint and quiet little park made up of 40 000 hectares of protected bushveld. In 2013 lions were introduced to the Mkhuze Game Reserve making it a Big 5 park. The main attraction is not the game viewing but, it is world renowned for its amazing birding. Mkhuze Game Reserve has more than 420 recorded species on its bird list. There are two bird viewing hides overlooking the Nsumo Pan. Kubube, Kamasinga and Kwamalibala pans have hides where you can view animals and birds.
The Mkhuze River runs along the northern and eastern borders of the park with fig forests along its banks. These fig forests are the only unspoiled, indigenous fig forest of its kind in Africa. Imagine seeing a tree that is 450 years old, this is possible at Mkhuze Game Reserve. The Fig Tree trail walk is highly recommended.
Matuma is a rustic camp in Mkhuze Game Reserves. This camp can accommodate a total of 84 guests. Nhlonhlela Bush Lodge is also rustic and can accommodate only 8 guests.
