Mini & Junior Ranger Course

If you are aged 6 years or older, and if you have dreams of becoming a game ranger just like our very ‘smart’ Mziki game rangers, why not ask mom and dad to enrol you in Mziki’s Mini-Ranger programme.
From vehicle preparation and inspections, to identifying different animal calls and sounds, recognising different trees and their uses to tracking and navigating you will soon know all there is to know to become a top-class game ranger. At the end of the programme you will even receive a certificate to say that you have completed the mini-ranger programme and have your photo taken which will then be added to the Mziki Wall of Fame.
The Mziki Mini-Ranger programme is tailor-made according to age and the duration of your stay and even better news is that it is free of charge.
You can also look forward to the following:
Camp treasure hunt:
A fun experience where you will have to find and collect specific items around the lodge. There will be clues for you to solve and items that you will have to identify with the help of the rangers.
Cultural experience:
Our game rangers will also tell you more about the “Bushmen” (Khoisan) people of southern Africa and their origins. Make sure to ask lots of questions!
Quiz:
Listen carefully at everything that the rangers tell you. At the end of the programme there will be a fun quiz.

Birding

Birders will delight in Mziki Safari Lodge’s excellent bird-watching opportunities. Bordering the 2,000-hectare Vaalkop Dam, considered one of the top three birding areas in the country, Mziki Private Game Reserve is home to several hundred species of birds. The mighty Hex river runs through the reserve and into the dam on which Mziki guests can enjoy barge cruises to get up close and personal to the birdlife.

For the sake of our rather vocal, hungry Fish eagles, Mziki Safari Lodge exercises a catch and release policy.

Barge Cruises

The mighty Hex river flows through Mziki Safari Reserve providing over 8km of river frontage through the reserve. A particular highlight among guests is the convivial Mama Hippo barge cruises that Mziki Safari Lodge offers along Hex river into the Vaalkop dam. Depending on the water levels, guests can enjoy a different encounter with the African bushveld, this time from the water’s side, watching the crocodile and water birds go about the daily business while enjoying are refreshing drink.
(Barge cruise is water level dependent. Please inquire about water levels)

Directions to African Hills Safari Lodge
From OR Tambo International Airport
Follow sign to Johannesburg until you reach the interchange with the N1 highway. From there follow the sights N1 North/Roodepoort or N1 Pretoria. In other words, keep going straight initially, but then get into the left hand lane to take the slip road that turns hard to the left, do not continue on the main R24 road to Johannesburg.

The road will then turn in a circle and take you onto the N1 north, where you should follow it to Roodepoort past Sandton. Take the 14th Avenue off-ramp. At the next intersection (Hendrik Potgieter) turn right and go on the on-tamp onto Hendrik Potgieter and head towards Krugersdorp. Follow this road past Makro all the way to the N14/R28 traffic lights (a SASOL garage will be on the far left hand side of the intersection).

Continue straight over until you reach a T-Junction. Turn right at the T-Junction heading on the R563 to Hekpoort. Remain on the right hand side, do not take the N14 to the left. Follow the R563 over the Hekpoort hills towards the Magaliesberg. When you reach a T-Junction, turn left onto the R560. Remain on this road for about 8km (5 miels) until you see the Doornhoek (Plumari Africa/Plumari Game Lodge) turnoff to the right. Take this turnoff and continue on the dirt road for about 6km (3 miles) until you reach the Plumari Game Lodge on the right-hand side.
