Great place for a 2 day weekend break. Food was excellent the whole weekend. Staff was wonderful, friendly and helpful. Games drives were most enjoyable and were inclusive in the price. One of drives included a barge cruise. Gerhard (game ranger) was top class. We had a great time!

Stayed there for only 1 night and was very impressed with the service that we got. Highly recommended. Although we didn't get to see any cats on the Game drive, the guide was very knowledgeable and added positively to the experience.

We enjoyed our family safari at Mziki. Fantastic that it is in close proximity to Johannesburg yet you are in the middle of the African bush veld. Exceptional value for money. Staff are accommodation and friendly. A highlight was the optional experience of fishing for catfish which we really enjoyed. Mziki would be perfect to use exclusively for a family... More

We were back at Mziki for our fourth visit and loved it every bit as much as before. In fact, the food is even better now. We had an Impala stew that was easily the best venison we have had and an oxtail stew to die for. The braai was awesome as always as were the breakfasts. Our boys just... More

Overall we had a lovely weekend. Proximity to Gauteng is an advantage, and the roads are good. Great atmosphere and very friendly and efficient staff. Some of the animals seemed 'skittish', and the food could have been hotter/warmer.

We absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anyone. The food was absolutely amazing - Kego is gem. It is such a special place. Quiet and not too many people - just how we like it and great for the family. The cruise on the barge was fabulous!
