KwaBa is a private four-bedroomed lodge for sale with expansive views over Manyoni Private Game Reserve (MPGR), one of the largest privately owned reserves in KwaZulu-Natal. Designed to merge seamlessly with the bushveld, KwaBa’s decks and swimming pool take in a panoramic hilly setting, which is also home to the Big Five.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors guarantee seamless flow outdoors and it’s not unusual to spot wildlife grazing nearby. Previously known as Zululand Rhino Reserve, this 23 000 hectare reserve has 17 dedicated landowners who dropped their fences in 2004 to create one protected area for wildlife. All passionate conservationists, the reserve has seen historic species return
and thrive.

The reserve was subsequently chosen as a release site for the WWF Black Rhino Range Expansion Project and in 2005 a founder population of black rhino were released. By 2009 the reserve was proclaimed as a Nature Reserve under the Protected Areas Act 57 of 2003.

Luthuli is the largest concession in Manyoni Private Game Reserve (4664 hectares). Manyoni is on the border of the exclusive Thanda Safari Private Game Reserve, a five-star property that won World’s Leading Luxury Private Villa award in 2017.

Expect extraordinary diversity here, with a mix of riverine woodland and savannah interspersed with hilly regions. Distinctive Umbrella Thorn Acacias, striking candelabra Euphorbias, massive Marulas, Weeping Boer Bean, Bush Willow, and Tamboti trees dot the reserve along with Knobthorn Acacia forest, all of which is home to over 455 bird species at last count – it’s no surprise then that Manyoni  means ‘Place of Birds’ in Zulu.

Manyoni Private Game Reserve is only a 3 hour drive from Durban and 6 hour drive from Johannesburg.
