Mkhaya Game Reserve recently scooped the ‘AA Travellers Value Award for Top-End Leisure Travellers’ and with good reason! This South Eastern Swaziland Game Reserve is home to four of the Big 5 including Black Rhino, exquisite birdlife including the elusive Narina Trogon and Pink-Throated Twin-spots and a whole host of other must-see wildlife highlights, but it is the excellent Swazi service, and truly unique semi-open stone and thatched cottages which really set this reserve apart. Mkhaya Game Reserve is seldom short of praise; recently Wild Photo-journalist Stephen Cunliffe said: ‘A rhino walk at Mkhaya stands on par with a mountain gorilla encounter in Central Africa’ while Lonely Planet Africa Author Kate Armstrong said ‘This reserves that your more likely to see rhino here than anywhere else in Africa, and judging by our experience, this is true!’. Entry to Mkhaya at fixed times of either 10am or 4pm must be pre-booked in advanced and once in the reserve, your entry, food, activities and accommodation is included in the price of your chosen package.

To see what all the fuss is about, book a stay of 2 nights or more at either Reilly’s or Mkhaya, and save up to 30% off normal rates with our Quiet Season Specials – valid until 18th March 2013!

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.
