The 5 acres of verdant rolling gardens stretch down to the water on the boundary of the property. All new planting is indigenous and we are slowly removing the remaining exotics, in order to keep the garden as indigenous as possible. The flourishing old trees and succulent fruit attract many species of birdlife, for which Mkuze is well known, and the garden also features a bird hide and jetty for both birding and relaxing.

Swimming pools – The hotel offers two pools. The larger of the two is situated in the garden in front of the hotel, surrounded by umbrellas and loungers where the second, a rock pool in a more secluded area of the Spa, offers a truly unique experience.

Lounge area – Comfortable airy lounge areas with fireplaces for the chilly winter months, as well as complimentary wireless internet, are available for all guests to take pleasure in. Open all day, our gift shop offers a variety of curios, from beaded artefacts and carvings to Nguni cow hides and clothing.
