A nephew and his beautiful bride were married over the weekend on the beach on the Tugela River at Zingela. The bride and her entourage arrived on time and by helicopter! Apart from the spectacle we enjoyed wonderful meals and wines and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Also climbed the Pimple and took some great photos while other guests... More

We spent a week at Zingela over the new year period and what an amazing experience it was!!! The hour long 4 x 4 road to get to the resort is a "must do"! The Lodge is beautifully situated on the banks of the Tugela River with drinks and dining all happening more in the open than not. The food... More

We just came back from 2 nights at the Zingela river camp. We are a family of 3, daughter aged 14 and we all had an amazing time. The journey began in Weenen, where we were picked up in a 4x4 and driven 1hr and 15 min to the camp. The drive in itself was absolutely gorgeous with amazing scenery.... More

This place is incredible. The accommodation is half luxurious tent, half safari lodge - you can't lock it and you may find yourself with four-legged visitors. Could be warthogs :) or the lovely family dogs. The scenery is outstandingly beautiful and there is no shortage of adventure activities. Mark and Linda are amazing hosts and the staff are super-welcoming and... More

Seriously awesome place to relax if you want to, be active and adventurous if you'd prefer that, spot bird and wildlife and if you want to get up close to giraffe, meercat, boar, warthog and python then this is the place for you. Fantastic rooms offer a rustic-style luxury. We had the whole camp to ourselves for a 40th and... More

You can book and use this river camp as a base from which to do some white water rafting. You will need to book in advance unless you have a 4x4, as they are located 1 hour drive down a really rough road. Thye will collect you from their meet n greet point. The camp has 3 standards of accommodation... More
