About Mavela Walking Safaris

Walking safaris through the Manyoni Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal (home to the Mavela Lodge) give visitors an incredible opportunity to experience the raw magic of the African bushveld – the smell of the warm grasses, the toasty comfort of the sunshine on your face, and the sounds of the wild. But, they also give you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of seeing some of South Africa’s most impressive wildlife species in their natural habitat.

The reserve is home to the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), as well as wild dog, hyena, giraffe, cheetah, zebra, wildebeest and kudu. There are more than 400 species of birds that call this home too, making it a bird-watchers paradise. Walking safaris with an experience guide allow you to share their habitat with them in a very special way, while always maintaining and safe distance. Take exquisite photographs or simply drink in the tranquillity.

Because these safaris are on foot, they allow you to take in the surrounds and their beauty in a very personal, serene and immediate way. However, for guests that also want to experience the guided game drives, these are conducted in the early morning and evening. Additional activities here include interacting with elephants, which is a particularly touching and memorable experience.

The Manyoni Private Game Reserve in the Mkuze Valley Lowveld covers an amazing 23 000 hectares of the South African countryside. It is only about 3.5 hours from Durban and the King Shaka International Airport.
