Location: Mkhuze Game Reserve, situated in northern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, was proclaimed a protected area in 1912. The 40,000-hectare reserve is recognised as a mecca for bird watchers, with a bird list well in excess of four hundred.

Predominantly flat and dry, with sandy ridges which are ancient dunes, it is home to an amazing diversity of natural habitats. Because of this, Mkhuze is able to accommodate a wide variety of wildlife.

Animals inhabiting the reserve include black and white rhinoceros, elephant, giraffe, hippo, the handsome nyala antelope, blue wildebeest, impala, kudu, plus other smaller antelope. Rare species occurring in the reserve are cheetah, hyena, suni and leopard.
