Mbizi Bush Lodge is an exclusive 8 sleeper boutique lodge nestled in the African bush – a comfortable 5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg. The privately run lodge is located in the renowned Grietjie Private Nature Reserve which forms part of Balule Nature Reserve, unfenced to The Greater Kruger National Park. 

The discerning traveller will be well accommodated in a selection of 4 private bush chalets, beautifully appointed with private terraces, en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. The chalets overlook the scenic surrounding bushveld, and at night one can enjoy the sounds of the hyena’s calling and awake to the sweet sounds of birds singing. Additional amenities include an overhead fan, private entrances, complimentary toiletries, in-room safe, quality linen and mini bar.

An unforgettable African experience at Mbizi Bush Lodge awaits. Unique dining combines traditional African cuisine with Asian flavours and fresh produce. The dining area overlooks an illuminated waterhole for one to enjoy under a canopy of dazzling stars amongst an open fire. 

You can either watch the game in the privacy of your own veranda or from the veranda at the main house overlooking the private waterhole. As Mbizi is not fenced around the property, it’s a perfect place to relax and  watch majestic animals pass by. If you are lucky, perhaps a heard of elephant will grace you with their presence whilst enjoying a guzzle at the swimming pool! 

The main house, with the pool, the bar and the restaurant area are a short bush walk from the African inspired chalets. 

Balule Private Nature Reserve is a Big 5 area, so you will find elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion and rhino present. Zebra, giraffe, warthog, kudu and other antelopes as well as numerous birds, are also a part of the wild life you will meet at Mbizi Bush Lodge.

With its unique location tantalizing cuisine, excellent game viewing and bird spotting, Mbizi Bush Lodge is the perfect choice for long weekends, romantic get aways and small exclusive group gatherings.
