Check-in is at Mantuma Camp reception for all accommodation in the Mkuze Game Reserve. Guest may only check-in from 14h00 and must vacate the accommodation by 10h00 on their last day. Chalet accommodation is brick under thatch. Only the 6 bed and 4 bed chalet's lounge / dining rooms are air-conditioned. All other chalets and resthuts do not have air-conditioning, the rooms are surprisingly cool due to the high ceilings. The tents are located in a well wooded area and have extra shade protection above the tents. The Mantuma Camp 2 bed Rest huts have communal bathroom and kitchen facilities away from the rooms. The 2 bed Chalets and tents have their own private shower and toilet en suite with each having its own kitchenette. The 4 bed Safari tents have two tents, each with own bathroom, separated by a deck with kitchen and dining facilities. The 4 bed Chalets have two bedrooms, one bathroom (bath with a shower in the bath), a kitchen, lounge / dining room and veranda. The 6 bed Cottages have three bedrooms, a bathroom (with bath toilet and hand-basin), a separate shower and separate toilet. Then there is a kitchen and large lounge / dining room with a big veranda.
Units are serviced daily, but visitors are required to do their own cooking and washing up. No plug points for electric razors are available.

All the units have their own braai (Barbecue) stand – Care should be taken to not leave the braai unattended, as the Hyena have learned that this is an easy source of food, despite the heat of the fire. Monkeys entering the rooms and even ones vehicle, can be a nuisance.

** Please note that although the water is suitable for bathing and cooking,
it is recommended that one does not drink the water and to buy or bring your own supply.

We are only a booking service to secure accommodation at a number of the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife park accommodation venues. We are in no way responsible for the condition of the facilities, which due to severe budgetry cuts from our Provincial Government, has resulted in a lack of general maintenance over the years, with many of the accommodation facilities severely jeopardised and in need of urgent repair.
As of August 2019 there has been substantial maintenance carried out. The chaklets have been rethatched as well as the office complex, Rhino-dino take away and gazebo. Fridges, stoves, microwaves and utensils along with beds and linnen have been upgraded

Far and Wild Safaris has no control over the allocation of units and their condition. Should you choose to visit these venues and subsequently find fault with the accommodation and or service, we are only able to forward your comments to the Park authorities. There is no compensation for this status quo should it not meet your expectation. Please contact ourselves should you require further clarification.
The roads in the Mkuze Game Reserve are tar and gravel in various sections with roads within the Park in good condition with the tarred sections recently refurbished 2018. The two entrance roads are rough and potholed in sections, although suitable for the normal sedan cars, care should be exercised.

Should you arrive after Mantuma Camp reception has closed, the unit allocated to you will be written on a board outside reception against your name. Take up occupation of the room and report to reception in the morning. Most Credit cards are accepted.

The Mkuze Game Reserve has a number of recently upgraded and rebuilt hides at three water-holes and Nsumo Pan.
Should we be unable to secure accommodation for you in the Mkuze Game reserve there is the nearby Ghost Mountain Inn which is a popular venue for guests wanting the added facility of a full restaurant.
Easy access as a day visitor to the Mkuze Game Reserve from these venues.
All guided walks are subject to the availability of a guide..

Mantuma Camp has a take-away (closes at 18h00) with a limited menu, the camp has a swimming pool with a gazebo.
In the Mkuze Game Reserve there are another two Bush Lodges, Nhlonhlela and Umkhumbe (Umkumbe only available from 1st November to 28th February). These also sleep a maximum of 8 guests. Mantuma Camp, is where guests staying at the Nhlonhlela and Umkumbe Camps check in.

Should you prefer a private fully hosted and catered for luxury Lodge, there are a number in the Mkuze area. The Zululand Rhino Reserve have three venues we can recommend. Leopard Mountain Game Lodge, Rhino River Lodge and the tented Mavela Game Lodge. Slightly further south is the excellent Thanda Private Game Reserve.
