Set within the Mkuze Falls Private Game Reserve the tented camp is uniquely situated on the Mkuze River, overlooking a favourite winter waterhole and sandbank. The tented camp has five "Hemingway" style East African safari Tents, with double and twin beds, and each with inside and outside en-suite facilities. Most important however each tent overlooks a game waterhole for viewing throughout the day.

Starlit evenings are enjoyed in the boma, where the pure spirit of Africa is beckoned by the sounds of the Zulu drumbeat. The evening tones ring forth the call of a nightjar, zebra in the distance, hippopotamus and the awesome roar of the lion or trumpet of the elephant. This lodge is a must for nature lovers seeking an intimate African safari experience that gets you close to the wilderness of Africa.
