Inhlanhla Ranch

Inhlanhla Ranch at Loziba Wildlife Reserve

In 2023, Inhlanhla Ranch officially became part of the Loziba Wildlife Reserve. Acquiring Inhlanhla was a key strategic step in the growth and development of the wider reserve. The ranch is home to a wide array of wildlife, a stunning bush landscape, and the bushman’s caves, which feature ancient Khoi-san artwork that goes back hundreds of years.

On-site at Inhlanhla there is a number of rustic-style stone and thatch cottages. The camp carries the essence of the bush, eco-friendly installations such as solar energy for lights, “firing the donkey” for hot water for the shower or bath are a South African bush experience. 4 Self-catering cottages, each with its own bathroom

Hiking trails and hiking in riverbeds with a cool-down in natural rock pools is a favorite pastime for our guests. Game drives, night drives, star-gazing, and bird watching are part of the activities enjoyed in the Reserve. 

Since Inhlanhla became part of the Loziba Wildlife Reserve, further development has taken place, this includes the development of the adventure camp and boma area. Plus the ongoing building work on a new damn, which will hopefully be home to a pod of hippos in the not-to-distant future.


Adventure Camp

The views across Inhlanhla are so impressive the decision was made for the first Loziba adventure camp to be constructed on the ranch. To date the camp is made up of 3 bush tents with stunning views across the reserve, each with their own private decking area to soak in the stunning vistas across Loziba with a sundowner or two. The adventure camp is also accompanied by a traditional boma and bush kitchen to enjoy a braai and a fire on a beautiful Zululand evening. The adventure camp will be open soon to allow everyone to come and visit Loziba and a special place in Zululand, South Africa.


The animals that call Inhlanhla home

The reserve is home to Leopards, Hyenas, Kudu, Nyala, Blue Wildebeest, Giraffe, Zebra, bushpigs and warthog. There is also a large number of smaller antelope such as Blesbok, Grey Duiker, Impala, Mountain Reedbuck, Steenbok, which make up the diversity of the game.

There are also the various indigenous animals, which are very shy and rarely spotted such as pangolin, baboon, monkey, dassie, aardwolf, caracal, serval, silver back jackal. A prolific birdlife of hundreds of different species makes bird watching very interesting


Research at Inhanhla

September 2023 saw the Crew Foundation and their team of wildlife researchers come and stay at Inhlanhla. The crew team undertook valuable research utilising camera traps and tracking collars to gain a better understanding of the wildlife and their movement across Loziba.
