Two nights here is a must. The accommodation is thatched roofs over a stone surround and the middle 4feet is just wide open. You feel back to nature sitting on the toilet looking out into the bush with monkeys leaping around the trees !! Just lying in bed staring out at the trees with the birds is so relaxing. You...

A truly unforgettable experience in the middle of the bush, with pitch black nights filled with bush sounds and game drives (and walks!) which are guided with expertise and love for both the animals, the surroundings and the guests. Stone Camp in Mkhaya Game Reserve offers not just game drives, but also bush walks (daily 10:30) which are only available...

Having stopped previously at Mlilwane we wanted to try another park in the group and we weren't disappointed. From the 2 hour game drive on the way in - please ensure you have your hats and sunscreen with you - to the time you leave you are well looked after. The stone huts give a real sense of sleeping in...

We wanted to visit a game park in Swaziland and chose this one after reading the reviews. It is not a big 5 reserve as there are no lions or leopards and currently no elephants as they moved them because of the recent drought. We did get to see a lot of rhino, mostly white, and giraffe and antelope. There...

A lovely review, thank you! There are leopard on Mkhaya - not reintroduced, but occur naturally. However, these are hardly ever seen.

In order to experience an awesome Safari on land rovers and stay in the semi open stone (with traditional straw top) huts, my girlfriend and I visited at this animal refuge at Mkhaya Game Reserve, in February 2017. Our hut was comfortable and clean, with two single beds and mosquito nets, shower and separate toilet. There is a safe and...

What a truly amazing place to stay, the huts if you can call them that are brilliant you actually feel as if you are sleeping outside. All the amenities are amazing considering there is no electricity or gas, the food was lovely, the staff amazing especially when they put on their little show after dinner. If you ever visit Swaziland...

We stayed here for two nights with our 9-year old son. We absolutely didn't know what to expect. It ended up to be one of the most amazing experiences we had during our South African trip (even if located in Swaziland). Kind and extremely helpful staff. Good food (prepared without electricity). Although no electricity (only petrol lamps) we found our...

Mkhaya Game Reserve is one of the most amazing places I've ever visited. The staff was wonderful, the food was great (and they cook it all without electricity). Sleeping in the stone lodges is really cool--there's really nothing separating you from outside except for a gate across the entryway and a few steps. I woke up around 4 am to...

We stayed for 48 hours, 10am to 10am. From my research I knew there was no electricity, but wasn't sure what to expect for the rest of it. Well the rest of it completely blew us away, in a good way :) There is running water, sit down ensuite toilets, hot showers, mosquito nets, and as you probably know, no...

A fabulous review, thank you! The cold beers are thanks to gas fridges, not electricity ;o) Thank you for your comment regarding your second guide. This is not what we aim to do - our guides are tasked to respect the bush and its creatures and to drive at a comfortable, respectful speed. We will address this with our guides...

Looking for an experience of a life time, do not hesitate anymore, this is the place to be. Beautiful game drives, amazing stone camp, friendly staff, wild beasts all around and in the camp. Relaxing and enjoyable place where nature guides your pace.
