In the bar are several board games, cards and books in the event that the weather is overcast.

We over snorkeling gear and kayaks free of charge to guests staying in the lodge.

Fishing rods and hooks are available for hire.

Bird watching is fantastic around the lodge all year and even non birders enjoy the abundant birdlife.

Makuzi Hill is a lovely walk and gives you a fantastic panoramic view of the coastline.

Makuzi has always been involved in the community and will continue with its projects. If anyone wishing to be involved in any way, teaching at the local school, donating school goods, helping at a feeding program, or planting a few trees, please let us know.
