Wet season – wildlife hides
Overall rating
2/5

Mkhuzi Game Reserve is located in KwaZulu-Natal and is part of the greater iSimangaliso Wetland Park. It has a variety of habitats and is rich in birdlife. There are lion, wild dog, leopard and elephant present, although the thick bush makes wildlife sightings tricky. Mkhuzi is famous for its hides, which are built overlooking waterholes and make for great photographic opportunities. These reach their peak of activity in the winter, during the dry season, when wildlife throngs to the water. We visited in January and despite hours of waiting, all we saw was a terrapin! Similarly, the guided walk through the fig tree forest, which is supposed to be beautiful, was also closed in January due to flooding. Note to self: revisit in the dry season.
