peternorkunas's review of Mkhaya Game Park, Swaziland

“Mkhaya 24 hour plus experience”


written by peternorkunas on 23/08/2013

Luckily my last minuite was handled very quickly using the Big Game Parks website.
I was not 100% sure that the booking was made but decided that, being in the neighbourhood (> 2 hours away), I'd risk it.

All went to plan more or less. Being 'picked up at the gate' was a little unclear. The meeting point was a non-descript mud-hut shop beside the well sign-posted turn-off. A bumpy ride with creek crossing to the gate under 4WD escort to the gate and the secure parking.

Very very good. Unique, high-quality partly open stone huts. No power - but that's a good thing too. Nothing to disturb the bush ambiance and the omnipresent antelope (nyala and impala) warthog, guinea fowl and so on.
Food: good camp tucker. Fresh and well presented. Friendly faces everywhere.

Game drives
As they should be, a mixed bag. Some very hectic and others requiring more patience. Plenty of big game for the patient. The new hide across the creek from the stone camp is a great asset - an hour or three spent there should be worth the time. The walking safari was excellent - within a few 'safe' meters of all sorts including a curious white rhino cow and calf. Guides all well informed and talkative and enthusiastic (apparently all going to the same school for Mkhaya guides with some of the patois a little repetitive).

Fast, efficient, (well as much as umpteen receipt forms would allow - all in hardcopy)
