Mkhuze in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park is well known for its excellent birding opportunities with at least 400 species present, but that's not all. This KwaZulu-Natal nature reserve offers great contrasts and therefore a wide range of wildlife habitats.
Animals present in the reserve include Elephant, Black and White Rhino, Wild Dog, Hippo and Blue Wildebeest, Giraffe, Eland and Kudu plus many other antelope species. Rarer animals that live in the reserve include Cheetah, Leopard, Hyena and Suni.
Mkuze is made up of mostly dry and flat landscapes which are broken by ancient dunes that have turned into sandy ridges. You'll also find rare sand forest, riverine forest, swamps and acacia savannah leading to the Lebombo Mountains in the west.
