Zulu Nyala Lodge attracts a lot of Americans who have purchased the safari package through auction. We weren't exactly sure what to expect when we bought this package and I was anticipating a pleasant but not necessarily spectacular setting and accommodation. As it turns out, the lodge, which is in the process of renovations, exceeded our expectations by quite a... More

We won out 6 day safari at a charity auction. The Lodge was wonderful. The people were so friendly and helpful. Our guide, William, was amazing. The food was nice and the rooms lovely. We had a room at the pool side with a fabulous view watching the nyala and warthogs "mowing" the lawn each morning. We saw so many... More

We stayed 4 nights and like everyone else "won" our time at ZN at a charity auction. We met the nicest group of people at the resort and quickly saw 4 of the BIG 5 at Zulu Nyala. ZuluLand is an amazing part of S. Africa so be sure opt for a few excursions. Do not miss the excursion to... More

My son and I stayed at this property before we headed to Victoria Falls. I purchased this trip at a charity auction like most of the Americans that stayed here. Our guide Janine was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable and we were able to spot many animals. This included zebra, giraffe, water buffalo, hippo, elephants, rhino, cheetah, monkey and baboon.... More

This is a small private reserve located in a beautiful location with an incredible view from the restaurant, pool and some rooms. We had a very nice and spacious room (nº1), but the sound of the frogs at night was too strong!.Everything was clean and the breakfast was abundant.relaxing at the pool was really a pleasure! We did one game... More

We bought the trip like others in a charitable auction and got information from a neighbor who had also visited as part of a charity auction prior to the time we arrived. The reserve is not large by most safari standards, but that worked to our and our ranger's advantage as William was able to locate most any animal due... More

I noticed that one reviewer described this place as 'luxurious'. Well, I certainly wouldn't say that, though it is very comfortable and excellent considering you are on a photo safari in the middle of South Africa and no where near any cities. Because of this, I cut the place some slack. The free wi-fi, for example, was occasionally spotty--but I... More

Like everyone else, we purchased this trip at a silent auction. I read some of the reviews before and didn't have high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised when we got there with the rooms and grounds. The major problems were the service wasn't great, the food wasn't good, and the reserve itself isn't that large. After a few days you've... More

We, like most folks, purchased this during a fundraiser. We happened to pay much more than most - but it was for charity! My only complaint about this would be that our first room was a bit tired and had a strong odor - perhaps they had just sprayed the thatched roof with an insecticide or sealant. I requested another... More

My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary at this Lodge and we were AMAZED!!! We were given room 18 (opposite the pool) and we loved every experience. Thank you so much for all your efforts and the food was great. Thank you DADDYSDEAlL for such opportunities.
