Close to Johannesburg – Small lodge – Safe – Special – Personal – Beautiful
Message from the owners:
“Our tourism industry & many others have never been in a situation like with the virus pandemic and we hope that the whole world will change for the better thereafter.
‘Back to Basics’, or ‘Back to Nature’ has always been our goal, for our guests to discover the beauty of the bush and to learn from nature. We did not increase the size of our lodge a few years ago and decided to remain a small lodge with 9 rooms only. Mziki Safari Lodge is a safe haven for its visitors and we have taken all health precautions, training of our staff, cleaning schedules, for when we re-open.
Move your ‘Home Office’ to Mziki, being located close to Johannesburg, with uncapped internet, surrounded by the sounds of nature, and with a ‘bush lesson’ for your children by our ranger.
We hope to welcome you as well when we open again and count you amongst our many repeat guests. We honestly need your support more than ever before and promise you a memorable, personal and valuable experience. The size of our game reserve, which had recently been increased by another 600ha, or the beauty of the Hex River flowing through the middle of the game reserve, or the 2000h bordering Vaalkop Dam (our small Lake Kariba) guarantee you a relaxed ambience in peaceful surroundings.
We look forward to engaging with you personally.
The “Pallamar family”
Nestled beneath the shady Karees in the heart of Mziki Private Game Reserve, just two hours’ drive from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, Mziki Safari Lodge offers a natural, affordable haven for eco-travellers seeking an authentic, unaffected encounter with the African bush.

Enjoy luxury accommodation, each room individually decorated to reflect the natural bushveld environment, excellent local and international cuisine and days spent admiring the great African outdoors from the comfort of the Outdoor Safari Lounge and crystal-clear swimming pool, as the squirrels scamper hurriedly past and children play contentedly on the jungle gym set within beautiful, lush indigenous gardens.
Watch as the eland compete with brazen guinea fowl for a space at the nearby waterhole or relax on a sundowner cruise on the mighty Hex river which weaves its way through the reserve and into the magnificent Vaalkop dam.
