Mkhaya Game Reserve (MGR)


Stone Camp is a unique camp, imaginatively laid out in a riverine forest along a dry riverbed. Units sleep 2-6 people, depending on configuration.


Mkhaya dining focuses on the campfire and hearty bush meals, including fresh salads and vegetables, game meat, local ‘phutu’ and freshly home-baked bread. Depending on the size of the group, some meals are prepared on the fire. Breakfast and dinner are served around the fire, while lunch is often set up under the giant Sausage Tree. In inclement weather, dining is moved under our large thatch roof, suspended on hardwood tree trunks, planted in the sand.


All activities at Mkhaya are guided and form part of the various packages, both Day Tours and Overnight. Whether on foot or Land Rover, guests encounter a myriad of species, including endangered mammals, colourful birdlife, interesting insects and the all-important vegetation. These fascinating creatures and life forms are woven into your Swazi safari. But yes, the highlights of Mkhaya are definitely the Black Rhino, Narina Trogon and Crested Guineafowl.

Mkhaya has a handful of knowledgeable Field Guides who enjoy hosting small groups, weaving our history and ethos into interpretation of the environment. Local knowledge allows them discretion with individual animals, some of which are incredibly tolerant, while others are best viewed from further away.

Activities take place pre-breakfast, mid-morning and mid-afternoon into the evening, and are built into packages as appropriate.

Please note child restrictions: 10+ years generally and 13+ for walking safaris.
