Mbizane is a private nature conservancy straddling the Lowveld escarpment in the highest reaches of the Schoemanskloof valley, Mpumalanga. Mbizane’s boundaries are its natural features – its rivers, cliffs and ravines, dense vegetation, and the surrounding nature reserves.
The extraordinary beauty of Mbizane’s cliffs and of the escarpment ensured Mbizane’s inclusion on the Register of Natural Heritage Sites for having “highly significant natural features and objects, and to be essential to the preservation of South Africa’s natural diversity.”
Experience living at Mbizane inside the heart of nature, on the bank of a pristine cold mountain stream in virgin riverine forest, dwarfed by the vertical cliffs above. Enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding cliffs, hear the variety of bird calls echoing off the cliffs above the cobbling of the stream, and marvel at the beauty of the nature surrounding you from the privacy and comfort of your forested luxury tent deck.
Mbizane is a birder’s dream. You will be birding – whether you are walking, driving on the scarp face, looking out from the two lookout towers, or just relaxing on your deck. Expect sightings of Narina Trogon, Knysna and Purple-crested Turacos, Verreaux’s Eagle, Crowned Eagle, Tambourine Doves, and other bird species specific to Mbizane’s Afromontane forest escarpment habitat.
