This is what I retrieved from the official website. -O-

There are safari tents now an the other side of the road as well ("under" the picnic table) and these are ugly, the better ones are these far from the camp road in the bush, perhaps 23 is the best from what I see from the map.

Has anyone up to date information about the condition of the bungalows. Unfortunately I read the most terrible reviews about it. We were in a 6 bed unit 8 years ago and to be honest it was awful. So worn, so old, so broken, almost beyond imagination and apparently it got even worse. Has anyone have currently been there. I do not want to stay in a tent but a bungalow with kitchen and bathroom. Thank you.

I have just spent a few days at Mkhuze Game Reserve and I liked it very much. The Camp layout, as shown in the first post, is no longer accurate, even if it is still the one we find on the KZN Wildlife website.

The communal ablution/kitchen at the center of the circle of the bungalows 7-15 does no longer exist and is now a small take-away restaurant, open daily, which is very useful for turists who did not bring all their braai stuff. A gazebo has also been built next to the restaurant, where one can eat.

Here are some pictures of the camp :

The bungalows are not brand new, but are quite OK, with fan and air condition, large main room, small kitchen (with fridge, oven, micro-wave...). The bathroom is a bit old (tap and shower could be replaced, but it is still OK).
