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

A morning fishing on the river bank was a highlight for my son in law & I - he landed a 5kg barble (catch & release), barge trip with entire family & sundowner drinks on river/dam, is quite an experience - game viewing good but highlight were the elephants crossing the road in front of...

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!

Ever needed a break from it all? Recharge the batteries whilst being treated like royalty? What a gem! Mziki in 1 weekend got us sorted! The attention and pampering we got from Manuela and her team was out of this world. You just do not get this atmosphere anymore. Peace, relaxation and getting in touch with nature again.
