Bonamanzi is a four thousand hectare private game reserve, in Hluhluwe. It is a Natural Heritage Site widely recognized as the premier birding destination in Africa. The Hluhluwe River and Lake St Lucia give Bonamanzi its Zulu name, meaning “Look – Water!”



Teaming with game, one of Bonamanzi’s distinctive features is the freedom to safely explore and experience the bush first hand on your own, or in the company of passionate field guides, who are a wealth of information.

A glorious climate prevails all year. Big 5 enthusiasts will enjoy the nearby Imfolozi/Hluhluwe Reserve with its abundance of lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard. Birding enthusiasts are usually overwhelmed!

Families with children love the fact that they can explore safely. A host of activities have been designed to cultivate an interest in wildlife, and keep even the most active occupied whilst their parents enjoy some relaxation.

Comfortable, elegant accommodation for 230 people equipped with all modern amenities; include en-suite chalets, and luxurious lodges where luxury blends into the lush greenery in true African style. Incredible settings mixed with outstanding cuisine tempt even the most discerning palates.
