Mkhaya Game Resevere

In the southeast of Swaziland, the heart of the lowveld, lies a magnificent unspoilt wilderness, haven to endangered species which roam the magnificent African bush.

'Mkhaya', named after the Acacia nigrescens tree found in the reserve, is home to 4 of the Big 5 including Black Rhino. Visitors can also spot the pure Swazi Nguni Breed of Cattle, Roan & Sable Antelope, Tsessebe, White Rhino, Elephant, Giraffe, Buffalo, Hippo, Crocodile and exquisite birdlife including the elusive Narina Trogon to name just a few of the wildlife highlights.

Unique, intimate encounters with Mkhaya's wildlife are almost guaranteed as all travel within the reserve is solely by Big Game Parks' open Land Rovers or by foot on a guided Walking Safaris.

After a day out in the hot African bush, return to Stone Camp, a bird-rich riverine forest camp and enjoy an ice-cold drink beneath the giant sausage tree before retiring to a unique and luxurious semi-open stone and thatch cottage to drift off to sound of the bush.

Mkhaya is staffed and patrolled entirely by Swazis from neighbouring communities and currently boasts what is arguably Africa's most effective anti-poaching unit.
Entry to the park must be booked in advance and guests are met at the pick-up point at either 10am or 4pm according to their package itinerary.

A trip to Mkhaya is a trip into Real Africa - a soul enriching, quality experience you'll never forget.
