We were on a tour and visited only the village which is not original, but made to look authentic. We learned some of the language and culture, saw some of the stuctures and housing. An older man dressed as a zulu greeted us and was funny and charming, as was Issac who seemed to be the coordinator of the project.... More

We arrive at a bad moment when the heavens opened up and it was pouring with rain. The site looked amazing and I wish we had experanced this place on a sunny day. It was a shame because we got a lack luster performance, disinterested guide, and dancers who were staring off into the rain with sad looking faces. We... More

We stayed at the Dumazulu Village/Lodge for 3 days. The site seems to be far from civilization but in fact there are a few other lodges in the area. The nearest town Hluhluwe is a 15 minute drive away albeit through the bush on a dirt track. The staff has to be highly commended for politeness, friendliness and respectfulness. The... More

Just arrived back from a wonderful trip to S Africa - stayed at Nibela Lodge, Hluhluwe for 3 nights - wonderful setting in the Rain Forest, overlooking St Lucia lake - excellent accommodation and food, walkways to Reception and accommodation. Had our washing done for about £4.00 - nothing was too much trouble. Flamingos were stunning. Good walks and Quad... More

Far from the Hluhluwe game reserve, terrible service, disgusting food, everything goes wrong in this place. The worst is the traditionnal zoulou danse, a place with no motivate people explaining the zoulou culture. touristic but not traditionnal at all. Only the lodge concept is good with zoulou house accommodation.

A nice place, marked above average for the lovely staff. Stayed here for a couple of days after being unable to get into the nearby Bushlands which is a tourist grade higher than the Dumuazulu 3 stars and more upmarket but we were happy with the accommodation and food (D, B&BB which is all included in the reasonable price.)
