Unwind in Nature...

Our Private Bush Stays

Mimi Moya is a private family-owned game reserve (2814ha) in the south of Mpumalanga, just beneath Swaziland, in South Africa. Mimi Moya offers unique private bush stays where people can enjoy nature and wildlife at their own pace… giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, nyala, kudu, impala, warthog, eland, common reedbuck, and steenbok can be spotted throughout the reserve.

There are excellent birding opportunities, with well over 200 of the 360 species listed. There are no Big Five (elephant, rhino, buffalo, leopard and lion) in Mimi Moya, so you can enjoy walking, swimming, and cycling in the bush. We offer bush stays with a minimum of two nights to settle down and unwind.

Mimi Moya

Freely translated, Mimi Moya means ‘Unwind in Nature’

The word ‘Moya’ has three meanings in isiZulu: wind, soul, and spirit. The word ‘Mimi’ is an abbreviation of ‘mimilitha’ which means ‘Immersion’ in isZulu. So The translation of Mimi Moya is ‘to immerse yourself with wind, soul and spirit’.

Why come to Mimi Moya?

Dear Jc and Ina, What a warm hearty welcome! This is being spoiled in its purest form. A little gem in South-Africa!

Familie Beyer

I just wanted to say a final massive thanks for the weekend. The guys really appreciated it- what an amazing start to a trip in Africa !.

Graham Hansen

Our first accommodation in South Africa and a real winner! The beautiful landscapes of Mimi Moya, the animals, the weather, but especially the spontaneous hospitality and loving kindness of two generations Van Rooyens: Jc, Ina, Hansie and Tania, Thank you so much and until next time here at Mimi Moya!

JP en Rita Dewaele

I really liked it here, it was super fun! Especially the raft building and watching the fire. And of course Ina’s lovely food. I played a lot here and ate lovely Afrikaans food. When I am grownup I will come back for sure!!!

Filip De Caluwe 10yrs

Thanks for everything, We really enjoyed every bit and definitely come back. Good luck with the house and I hope more people enjoy it! ‘This must be one of the best holiday resorts I have ever been to! Not every day you get to go and slide down a waterfall! It was a blast! I loved the horse rides!

Courtney and Gregory Webster

This was a wonderful encounter with South-Africa and an absolute privilege to be welcomed by this warm and loving family Van Rooyen during these days! If there is a peace of paradise on earth, then it is here with JC, Ina, Tania and Hansie! Well done!

Familie Wyckmans

Dear Tania, Hansie, JC and Ina, It was great to stay here some days! The ideal location to find rest after a long tour. I never could have imagined that we would see so many animals! Our boy will never forget his meeting with the giraffe and we will always remember the harmony with nature one still finds here. we hope to come back again one day! Thanks a lot for the warm welcome here. It was lovely to relax here in pure nature!

Pieterjan, Wolf en Hannele De Marez

The visit to Mimi Moya was a bit like coming home. How do one describes the warm welcome by JC and Ina..warm rooibos tea and many stories to be told. Joy is the word that comes closest to what we experienced here... the swimming in beautiful spots, the braai and lovely food, Ina’s knowledge on the fauna and flora...this was a top moment in our tour. We can only recommend it wholeheartedly.

Marie-Rose Mertens, tour guide Joker Belgium

A discovery...another world! Bushes, dry grass, lonely hills... kudu’s, nyala...look up distracted and hop along.... A giraffe stands in front of our window as the sun comes up early morning.... Far away is the European stress... A heavenly water massage in the Witrivier and endless galloping ... A back-to-nature-stay which you truly enjoy and with authentic South-African hospitality that makes you feel at home!

Game Walks

Mimi Moya offers several walking trails varying from a nice afternoon walk to adventurous day-walks

Mountain Biking

We have 8 mountain bikes for adults and children, which are available for rent to enjoy the reserve. The terrain offers a variety of tracks in the wild from all levels

4x4 Safari-trails

The reserve has over 60 km of 4×4 tracks offering river crossings and challenging ascents and descents.


The reserve offers some of the best yellow-fish waters in SA. The Pongola and the Witrivier with their many pools, natural weirs, and small cataracts hold four of the eight yellow-fish species found in the country.


The bilharzia-free waters of the Mkhunyane River with their many rapids and pools offer a delightful swimming experience for young and old.

Bird Watching

Mimi Moya has a birding list of 130 identified species. A peaceful morning will reward the patient observer with a variety of feathered visits and calls to be identified.

Geology Info

The Mimi Moya Eco-Reserve has a typical northern Natal topography with five different habitats spread over the reserve. The different habitats are: Highlands, Riverine, Mist Forest Patches, Savannah and Wetland Patches. The diverse environment plays host to more than 140 species of indigenous trees and shrubs and is the main reason for the exceptional birdlife. The geology is mainly Onverwacht group which forms part of the Barberton Supergroup, which is of particular interest to geologists as it is the oldest known rock formation.

The Onverwacht series outcrops all along the Mkhunyane River (Witrivier). As it is part of one of the oldest rock formations it is of interest to local and overseas universities.

Keen observers will be able to identify a number of geological formations along the riverbed. The name of one of the farmlands included in the reserve – Pypklipberg – refers to the soapstone found here. This was previously used to make smoking pipes.

In the northern part of the reserve, you can find the Mosaan system outcrops. This closely correlates to the Witwatersrand system and has been extensively prospected for gold, which was actively mined on a small scale at a number of localities.

Mimi Moya Wild NPC

The mission of Mimi Moya Wild NPO is to protect and conserve wilderness areas and create awareness in local communities about the value of South-African fauna and flora for the country and the planet. Workshops with a focus on environmental education, create awareness in the local Zulu- and Afrikaans children about nature and our task as humans to protect our planet. The project creates jobs for the neighboring communities in the areas of environmental education, anti-poaching, removal of alien plants, maintenance of fences and roads and identification of fauna and flora.
