Mantuma CampuMkhuze Game Reserve, Greater St Lucia Wetland Park
Mantuma Camp at Mkuze Game Reserve in northern Zululand offers visitors a choice of self catering accommodation – either in the form of en-suite safari tents or shared ablution chalets. Established in 1912, the reserve offers 40 000 hectares of protected wildlife area and is incorporated into the iSimangaliso World Heritage Park. Mkhuze Game Reserve is ideally placed, approximately 340km from Durban and 480km from Johannesburg, also offering easy access to Swaziland and Mozambique.
We are only a booking service to secure accommodation at a number of the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife park accommodation venues. We are in no way responsible for the condition of the facilities, which due to severe budgetry cuts from our Provincial Government, has resulted in a lack of general maintenance over the years, with many of the accommodation facilities severely jeopardised and in need of urgent repair or closure.
