uMkhuze Reserve is an inland game reserve with a dizzying array of wildlife. Black and white rhino, elephants, cheetah, buffalo, hyena and various antelope, not to mention over 420 species of birds call this park home. Guided walks through the reserve are an excellent way to explore. Take a guided tour of the Sycamore Fig Forest or set your own pace with a self-guided drive.

There are two entrance gates into uMkhuze: the eMshophi Gate (S 27 38.746 E 032 09.049) on the western side and the Ophansi Gate (S 27 35.953 E 032 17.910) on the eastern side. To get to the eMshophi Gate (S 27 38.746 E 032 09.049), get off of the N2 at the town of Mkuze, continue 2 km through the town and turn right at the T-junction.
