The kitchen and service is perfect, also the personal care by a ranger during the daily game drives with animal observations and explantations and the sundowner in the great terrain of the lodge were an unforgettable experience. I can highly recommend the lodge for a great safari experience.

Lovely little lodge with very basic but comfortable rooms. Service was exceptional from the rangers who looked after us at the lodge and on game drives. Alas not great sightings due to very high grasses and being a private lodge not huge herds of animals. The food was adequate and served with a lovely smile. Relaxing place for for a couple of nights

Dear Mrs Mc, Thank you for your feedback and for staying with us. Our team and rangers enjoyed hosting you. We had such an unbelievable amount of rain recently in April and the grass is very high indeed. Our game reserve is 6000ha and although that sounds big, the animals are sometimes difficult to spot especially when the grass is as high as currently. We are going into winter now, so the game viewing will be much different. As we are located approx. 30min before Pilanesberg and closer to Johannesburg, sometimes our guests combine the safari experience with a visit to the national park, whereby many others prefer the peace and beautiful nature of Mziki itself. Being such a small and intimate lodge is exactly what our guests are looking for. We also would like to let you know that our garden chalets will receive a facelift in the next three months during winter. We hope to welcome you back to Mziki, perhaps at the beginning of summer is a very good time for the bush, when everything's starts to blossom again. Keep well and our best regards Manuela

I had the best time at Mzizi Lodge. The hosts Zola, Devon and Chris. They were all phenomenal. The food was delicious as well. Beautiful views on the game drive - couldn’t have asked for a better stay!

The staff at Mziki are exceptionally friendly and accommodating making the stay at the lodge a real treat. The set menus were superb and made it a very easy holiday with our toddler. The game drives were an awesome experience and a real treat. Great break away being so close to Johannesburg and would definitely go again and recommend to all our friends and family.

We visited the lodge and were upgraded due to scheduling of other guests. The entire experience was extremely satisfactory, thanks to get attention to detail on many fronts - friendly staff, excellent chef and table service, personal ranger for the drives, who was very passionate, compassionate, and a nice guy! The room was great with working AC and fan, perfect hot water, sleeping was fine. Over all, every need felt taken care of.

Now is a great time to visit the Mziki lodge. We had the entire place to ourselves for a mid week trip with our 2 year old daughter - as Covid is still keeping international tourists away. Although local SA residents still visit over the weekends. Instead of a reduced service due to the lack of guests - we felt like royalty. A full breakfast buffet platter and cooked breakfast were provided just for the three of us. The evening meals, including Braai, were laid on by the open fire. The cook made a real effort to prepare food for our daughter - toddlers can be fussy - and often extra fruit and ice-cream. The staff were amazing during our visit - changing safari drive times and duration to accommodate our daughter. Including a successful early morning fishing trip. We got to see crocodiles, rhinos, monkeys, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and countless other animals and birds. During the hot part of the day, the pool is a great place to relax. The climbing frame and extensive fenced grounds provided enough space for our daughter to play.

Dear Stuart, thank you so much for your detailed feedback which is very much appreciated. Our team will be so happy to read your comments. It was a pleasure to host you and we hope to welcome you back. We have a lot of repeat family visits and see the children grow up. Our passionate ranger team is actually currently developing our Junior ranger courses in different levels for different age groups. These include shelter building, fire making, purifying water etc. - it is important for us to show the children how to protect the environment, so this is going to be a big element in our future offerings. all the best and keep safe, keep in touch and keep well. Manuela & team
