Mbuluzi Game Reserve

Mbuluzi Game Reserveis a small but highly picturesque reserve adjoins Mlawula to the north west, and its privately managed bushveld is home to plentiful wildlife in Swaziland. Game-viewing roads, hiking trails and a mountain-bike route wind around the reserve, criss-crossing the Mlawula River and offering impressive views. The terrain undulates between the deep Mbuluzi gorge and steep Lubombo escarpment, with dense riverine forests, rocky cliffs and open savannah. It supports a good population of giraffe, plus kudu, blue wildebeest, zebra, impala and other herbivores. Hippos move in and out of the reserve, while spotted hyenas and leopards are occasionally seen. Over 300 bird species have been recorded, including rarities such as African finfoot, and the rivers hold numerous crocodiles.

Mbuluzi is a strictly do-it-yourself destination. You can drive most roads in a standard family car, visiting viewpoints, picnic spots and a bird hide, or walk the reserve’s many trails. Other activities include mountain-biking and fishing. Large private lodges offer secluded, fully equipped, self-catering accommodation, with excellent views.
