Awesome Africa in Mkhaya Game Reserve

Following Awesome Africa’s visit to Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary on Monday 9th January, Big Game Parks had the pleasure of hosting Michael, Chris, Nicky & Terence from Awesome Africa at Mkhaya Game Reserve yesterday, Thursday 12th January.

Barely a giraffe’s stride into the reserve, guide Bongani worked his Mkhaya magic driving Michael and the Awesome Africa film crew into a meeting of Rhinos, Elephants and hormonal Zebras all vying for the limelight. Watch this space for the  feisty footage!

A sun-drenched day in the bush befriending some of Africa’s most endangered species can only be followed by a dose of friendly Swazi hospitality and a hearty game stew beneath Mkhaya’s giant sausage tree. Nightcap in hand under starry African skies, new memories were made in the shining continent before drifting off in lantern-lit thatch cottages to the sound of the bush.

Have a safe journey, Awesome Africa – hope to see you in Swaziland again soon!

Sawubona! Welcome to Big Game Parks' Blog! From the flatlands in the East, through the mountainous and scenic West, to the heart of the lowveld in the South East, the Kingdom of Swaziland not only offers you nearly every example of African landscape but also unforgettable wildlife, culture, adventure and birding experiences. Big Game Parks (BGP) is a private non-profit Trust which manages three game reserves in Swaziland: Hlane Royal National Park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and Mkhaya Game Reserve. All follow a common mission: to conserve the rich biodiversity of Swaziland's natural heritage. In 1960 the Reilly's family established the Kingdom's first game reserve on the Reilly family farm, Mlilwane. Hlane Royal National Park and Mkhaya Game Reserve soon followed and today the company's contribution to the restoration and protection of the Kingdom’s biodiversity is of great significance (BGP actually saved 22 species from extinction in Swaziland!) and can truly be appreciated by the discerning traveller. Swaziland is well-situated between Kruger National Park and Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Maputo. Big Game Parks’ well-positioned and diverse game reserves are an essential destination in any itinerary.
