Wow what a wonderful experience from arrival. Staff are so warm and friendly. The lodge itself has the most amazing position perched high next to the Mkuze falls, so a dramatic back drop to all of the rooms. We were a large family, and so got to see a lot of the chalets: they are all great with every amenity!...

As a family this was our first experience at a game lodge and we absolutely loved it. We were welcomed at the front of reception and given a tour of the lodge itself. It is very beautiful however the rooms/bathrooms are slightly dated, we also had a large gap in our window. I couldn't fault the game drives and guides...

We very much enjoyed the game drives through this private reserve. Beautiful, peaceful drives. The lodge is a little dated, but quite nice. We were surprised that our room had a bath but no inside shower. The only shower was outside which doesn't work well in cool weather. We thoroughly enjoyed our villa and the great view from our private...

We spent three days here and made three game drives with ranger Norman. The long gravel road we had to drive ourselves towards the reception was a game drive in itself. The premises, the staff, their service and hospitality were outstanding in every detail. From our balcony we had an unsurpassed view on a small lake with 8 playing hippos....

I have been on many safaris throughout Africa, and I have to say that Mkuze Falls was one of the best. The lodge is stunning, our accommodation was beautiful, great views and very private. All the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Our guide, Norman, was terrific, he and the tracker, Jabbu, were excellent at identifying and tracking animals. I...

Decided to go to Mkuze when we realised the weather wasn't going to be good for the beach and we were so glad we went. The food was delicious, the room had a spectacular view and outdoor shower. The staff were delightful and took us back out to see the lions even though we'd finished our drive!

We spent 6 nights at this lodge in September 2014. What an experience !! WOW !!. Great lodge with wonderful people. Reasonably priced compared to other game lodges with similar services. Each chalet had its own plunge pool. We didn't use it because it was cold outside. Comfortable beds and a large tub in the bathroom. Didn't have much interaction...

The staff was absolutely amazing and accommodating with our two very busy 3 & 5 year old kids they went the extra mile allowing us to enjoy some much needed down time. The quality and variety of the food was outstanding and the whole experience was just extra-ordinary, we were able to get separate game drives just with the kids...

A Lodge built sympathetically with the surroundings but in need of a refurb. Wonderful outlook over the Falls and some spectacular panoramic views on the Game drives. Big 5 on the reserve and opportunity for other outdoor entertainment for example Bass fishing. The food and service were consistent with the cost but could not be regarded as first class. The...
