This is a fantastic 5 star hotel with great accommodation, fantastic wildlife and delicious food. The game drives are really fun and you get to see so many great animals, I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a good bush experience. Comfortable, stylish and immaculate.

What a beaut! When my husband and I arrived for our 2nd year anniversary, we were greeted with a smile and our room was upgraded to the luxurious new tents without adding a cent! As for the game, we had quite an experience in the presence of a female cheetah, kudus, impalas, large reptiles, giraffes, zebras and elephants, just to... More

We bid on and won this trip at an charitable auction. When you get there you will realize that everyone there did the same thing and the majority of their clients are American. The exception being the 1-2 day travel groups on buses from Europe that stay at the lower lodge. If given the option I would stay at the... More

We visited Heritage Safari Lodge in October, we had an excellent time. We really got up close and personal with the game. One thing to know is your guide is very important because you go out on safari at least once a day, sometimes twice. Evidently we were there at a very busy time of year so they assigned us... More

It is a definite reality that most people never consider the terrain that much when taking distant holidays.....well I speak for me and other City Dwellers. Off the N2 followed the signage to Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge for 5.2km drive on a dead road. Luckily this time I took an off road so there was no hurdle. The reception... More

Like most guests, we won the safari thru a charity auction. When we originally booked the reservation they said they only had 5 nights availabe, when we confirmed our reservation the day prior to departure, they said they had us reserved for 6 nights, which we thought, ok, that would be fine. On the fouth day, our enthusiastic ranger, Deon... More

Okay, this is going to be lengthy because I am nothing if not thorough! :) We stayed here in September for 6 days and nights (we bought the trip at a charity auction, like most of the other guests) At this property, the Heritage Lodge, there are motel-like rooms and then there are tents cabins. At the Game Lodge, (which... More

My friend Sara and I had a wonderfull time at this place! We stayed here for one night on our way to Durban, but we wished we could have stayed longer. The houses are very clean and breathtaking. The service was also verry nice and we can't stop talking about the view around the lodge. We had a lovely time... More

We stayed at the Heritage lodge, and was so disappointed! The receptionist upon arrival was so unhelpful! Our game drive was booked 3 weeks in advance via e-mail, but upon arrival we were told their e-mails are down and no game drive was booked?? We were last minute put on a game vehicle with a ranger that has been in... More

won the trip at a charity auction and was skeptical we are there now and it's incredible!! Not as big as some of the others food is average at best but ranger Howard is awesome and service is great. Bid for this one if you get the chance.
