The dancing was good even though you could see them yawning, must be a long day, but definitely informative. The crocodile & snake pens looked quite dilapidated & worse for wear but the rangers were good. Curio shop was also good.

If you are new to South Africa or Durban or have friends from oversees visiting then this is definately worth the time. Massive crocs feeding is a great way of understanding how small we actually are - great comical guide too! The Zulu Village is a must do with great dances and authentic village which shows you the lifestyle that... More

Much expanded of late around a huge and very good curio shop - great place to do your African shopping, well priced and nicely stocked. The zulu experience is purely for tourists and worth a look - better than than learn nothing of this amazing culture while you are in KZN. For the rest it's trying but it's a bit... More

What you see on the website and what you receive is 2 different things. A large group of family went down for a wedding and chose Phezulu for its proximity to the venue as well as the service and price offered. One family occupied the family cottage. This cottage consists of 1 bedroom with 2 single beds pushed together without... More

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
