Booking not normally required for camping as no overlanders come to Makuzi so the site is normally quiet. (Jul-14).

Reported to us by a trusted traveller to be a great venue with good food. (May-12).

Also reported that the ablutions are old but cleaned daily, and the bar and restaurant was enjoyable. (Jan-13).

 Travel Tip!

Enjoy swimming in the lake! Take your own wood or charcoal along as the fire wood found in the area is not good for braai.
