We went there to see the snakes and crocodiles and we were certainly not disappointed. We also watched the crocodile feed which was quite interesting. We got a talk about snakes from one of the rangers which was really fascinating as we got to touch the snakes except for the puff adder. The Safari park is situated in the valley... More

We celebrated valentines day, at the safari park, it was an unforgettable experience. The lodge is perfect for couples, and the staff is very accomadating and friendly. They made us feel at home. The food at the Boma Restaurant is exceptional, and the view breath taking. The game drive was very informative, and we managed to get great photos of... More

Over the years we have brought many tourists to visit the zulu dancing. On Sunday we brought our exchange student from Denmark. We were the only 3 people at the zulu dancing and yet they gave us a great performance. Visiting the kitchen and family room are a good education and I think well worth the visit. We were extremely... More

My family and i recently visited Phezulu safari park, we had a meal at the restaurant which was delicious and enjoyed learning and hearing about the Zulu culture, my kids obviously loved seeing the snakes and crocodiles, it was a spontaneous visit and will definitely be back their amazing burgers!

We went to the dancing concert and had lunch in the restaurant. The dancers were clearly not wanting to be there, they showed very little enthusiasm at all. I have seen traditional Zulu dancing and this was not it. The food however was wholesome and some good traditional dishes on offer (bunny chow is great)

I came to Phezulu with my family. We watched the performance put on by the dancers. The dancers were tired and had little energy. It seemed as if they didn't want to be there. The women couldn't even lift their legs high to do the traditional Zulu dance. The men on the other hand had a little more energy. At... More

Performers were enjoyable.Pay extra for the reserve-amazing if you can handle the steep rough ride.Leave time for the well stocked Gift shop.Too bad the area surrounding has been developed with no regard for keeping authentic or historical .
