Mjejane Game Reserve is a community owned game reserve on the southern border of the Kruger National Park, with direct access to Kruger.
Mjejane River Lodge overlooks the Crocodile River and Kruger National Park beyond. The lodge itself has 17 rooms and is situated on the private Mjejane Game Reserve, boasting 4000 hectares of prime big 5 wilderness and 11km of river frontage along the Crocodile River. The reserve has its own private access road into Kruger, to connect to the wider road network in the Kruger National Park.
Fly to the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in Nelspruit, where you will be met by your transfer driver to take you to Mjejane River Lodge, overlooking the Crocodile River and Kruger Park beyond. Upon arrival at the lodge, you will be checked in and the daily schedule at the lodge will be explained.
The guides and staff at Mjejane are mostly local people from the nearby community who will go out of their way to make your stay as special as possible.
Embark on an afternoon game drive on an open safari vehicle with an English speaking guide.
Day 2 and 3
The daily schedule at the lodge is more or less the same every day. The day starts with an early wake up call and coffee, before heading out on an early morning game drive into the Mjejane Concession. The open safari vehicles give you an unobstructed view over the surrounding bush.
We return to the lodge for a hearty breakfast. Alternatively, we may decide to go out on a longer game drive into the Kruger National Park, taking a packed picnic breakfast with us to enjoy en route. The southern part of the Kruger National Park offers the best game viewing.
During the heat of the day, relax at the pool with a good book, enjoy a siesta or watch the animals come down to the river to drink. In the afternoon, after a delicious snack, we head out on another game drive into the Mjejane Concession, returning to the lodge in the evening for dinner.
Every second or third night, the lodge will set up a boma dinner under the stars, around the fire. During a boma dinner, a local group of dancers sometimes perform some tribal singing and dancing for a small fee to benefit the local community.
After a final early morning game drive in the concession area, followed by breakfast, it is time to check out and board the road transfer back to Nelspruit airport. From Nelspruit you can either fly back to Johannesburg or take a 4 hour road transfer.
