We stayed at the Mkhaya game reserve in February of this year. It was a great place - very in touch with nature. The lodges were comfortable with running water - but be prepared for no electricity. Make sure your camera batteries are charged before you get there. No need to charge phones - there is no service.
You definintely need to be comfortable with nature. One of our friends had a rhino outside his front door in the morning. There were bats in our hut (all is outdoor) - but we were pretected by mosquito nets.
The 'all inclusive' food was great - i had never tried impala or nyala before, and they were great. It was quite an experience to have warthogs and nyalas wandering around while we ate.
The game reserve was large with lots to see, we were even able to get out and do walking safaris around the rhinos - capturing a rare sighting of black and white rhino together. The only thing missing was the cats... no lions or cheetah. Rumor has it there are a couple of Leopards, but I think they are rarely spotted (pun intended).
