ABOUT THE LODGE

Mbizi Bush lodge is for the distinguished nature travellers who share a love of nature, the depth of its silence and the beauty of our Greater Kruger Big5 reserve.

Mbizi bush lodge is a family-owned and operated luxurious safari lodge. It is an exclusive small boutique lodge nestled in the African bush.  Our reserve is situated in a low risk malaria zone.  A stay with us will provide you authentic atmosphere and warm hospitality with fabulous food. 


Guests arrive as visitors and leave as friends. You can either watch the game in the privacy and tranquility of your own veranda or from the veranda at the main house overlooking our private waterhole. As Mbizi is not fenced around the property, its a perfect place to relax and  watch majestic creatures including the Big Five. Mbizi offers incredible viewing opportunities as the animals wander around in their natural habitat. 

 

We are part of Balule Greater Kruger, which means our reserve has open borders with Kruger National Park. If you wish to visit Kruger National park, the Phalaborwa gate is only 25 km away from us. Mbizi is the perfect place to view all big 5 you would see in Kruger national park at our door step with drink in your hand.
