Mbizo Bush Camp is ideally situated beside a series of rapids and pools near the spot where the Ngubhu and Mbizo rivers meet inside Ithala Game Reserve.

Stretching along the west bank of the Mbizo river, this atmospheric camp lends itself to relaxation in the african bush or walking into the surrounding hills with the field ranger to experience animals in their natural habitat or see the rare Protea comptonii high above the camp.

Swim in the rapids and pools as The rivers in Ithala are belhazia free and sit around the fire pit in the evening and listen to the night sounds as the cares of your work a day life fade away.

The establishment is well run, staff always helpful and polite and the accommodation was good. The setting for the park is stunning and most of the roads were in good condition enabling good sightings of game.
