Its a bit touristy but seeing the Crocs was good & you can for an extra fee go into an enclosure with loads of them to eat a meal in front of them. I had a croc burger & got so close they hissed at me. The Zulu dance show was quite fun considering they do it several times a... More

I'm from South Africa and have been to Phezulu a number of times. On the east coast, if you love wildlife and seeing how the Zulu's live and dance it is one of the things to do. I know the tourists I've encountered there have had a blast

My husband and I went to the Phezulu Snake and crocodile park as we learned that the Fitzsimon Snake Park in Durban has closed down and some snakes were transferred to the Phezulu Safari Park. We phoned in the morning to ask if we could just visit the snake park and was told yes and the entrance fee per person... More

We went to the Zulu village, where we were introduced to Zulu customs and culture, including some of their dances. The dancers were nothing short of amazing! The energy they had, and their ability to move was extraordinary. We also were able to go inside several of the traditional Zulu huts, which were interesting. There is a gift shop here... More

The Safari is fantastic our guide was excellent. I work 5 months doing what he does in Custer, South Dakota and I recognize a guide that loves his job and he does. The staff in the Gift Shop cannot do enough to be of service. The food in the Cafe was also spot on and the view is to die... More

I am so angry with this place! Firstly, it is so stupid expensive for what you get and if you think you are going to get a days worth, forget about it. I questioned the pricing and understand that i have no issue with spending good money as long as its justified!!!! I asked about this attraction and was told... More

Found this to be ideal for day trips as lots of animals can be viewed. They have most except the predators. Have seen rhino, hippo, giraffe and buffalo amongst others. Some of the Lodges bit out of reach of the main reception area which can be an inconvenience but seem quite nice

Growing up in Durban means I have been here and you don't really need to revisit, but my partner had never been to KZN so off we went to take in the local sights. He REALLY enjoyed his visit to the Crocodile and Snake park as he has never seen crocodiles in the flesh before and this allows you to... More
