Imani Bush House and Silver Sky Chalet are both private, self-catering properties situated in an indigenous sand forest on Kuleni Game Reserve. Each unit has its own plunge pool, a shady breeze and game that tends to wander through the garden. The world stands still while you relax and listen to the sounds of nature. If action is what you’re after, the St Lucia wetland area, False Bay, Big 5 game viewing game parks and diving hot spots of Sodwana Bay are all on your doorstep.
We have 2 self-catering accommodation options:

The second bedroom is a twin en-suite, both have glass doors that slide completely open to views of the bush and lawn. The central lounge has comfortable furniture, DStv and a large, open-plan fully equipped kitchen. The front of the house is embraced by a wide deck with an outdoor dining table and plunge pool. The back deck has a pool table and drinks fridge. Our outdoor BBQ area called The Cabin is located near the main house and features a large deck with an open fire pit, outdoor furniture and bar area. Our 3rd en-suite double bedroom is located in The Cabin; perfect for kids or a couple wanting more privacy.

All potential guests are asked to check availability of our 2 accommodation options when making your booking inquiry in order for us to confirm and allocate the most suitable option to your group/family size.
The game park itself is secure and surrounded by an electrified fence that offers security to residents and protects the game. We have numerous well-marked walking or biking trails for the whole family to enjoy. Animals such as giraffe, zebra, kudu, wildebeest, nyala, impala, red duiker and warthog can be seen around the property (if it’s quiet) or as you explore on foot. There is also an abundance of bird life in the park and a bird hide & water hole is situated just a 150 meter walk through the forest.
Kuleni Game Park is a quiet and peaceful place; no loud noises or loud music is allowed.
Imani is situated approx 15k’s near the town of Hluhluwe and has easy access for day trips to Big 5 game reserves, the St. Lucia wetland area, False Bay plus beaches and diving or snorkeling in Sodwana Bay or bistro lunch at The Railroad Brewery.
