Stayed in one of the front row tents that was absolutely beautifully appointed with art, bathroom amenities and in style and comfort. Parents stayed in a recent renovated room in the main complex which was again beautifully done. Toured one of the "upscale" Rhino "tents"... Which wasn't a tent, but a contained structure with a/c unit...immaculate and palatial. Toured the... More

Zulu Nyala was great! Amon was an AMAZING guide. We stayed at the Game Lodge and the tents. We MUCH preferred the tents. The Game Lodge was stuffy and other guests were not very friendly. Chantal at the bar for the Heritage Lodge is great and so were the wait staff!

My husband and I got the trip in a Charity Auction for Habitat for Humanity. Africa has been on my bucket list for years. This trip was the perfect way to introduce us to Africa.The people we met everywhere were unbelievably kind, considerate and helpful. We flew to Johannesburg, stayed one night at the Country Manor (really nice helpful folks),... More

Not knowing what we were getting into when we bid on our photo safari, we were pleasantly surprised by our experience. Be aware, the free "Wi-Fi" is spotty at best. If you are up to changing rooms, suggest spending a few nights at the Heritage location in "tents" (really more like upscale cabins) or rooms, and a few at the... More

My wife and I just returned from a stay at the Heritage Lodge. We stayed in Hemingway Tented Camp. The tents were closer to a fine hotel room. We thought the atmosphere at the lodge contributed to meeting others and we ended up leaving with new friends and memories. We also spent 3 nights at the safari lodge which was... More

My wife and I spent 6 nights/7 days at the Safari Lodge - all of them in the newer tented cabin located in the front row of cabins, facing the mountains. While the tent cabins are larger than the hotel rooms at the Safari Lodge, they are tents with canvas walls and no sound proofing. So, if you're sensitive to... More

Like everyone we bought this at an auction. We paid $100 extra to be in the new tents. Rhino 1. They are not tents, but brand new structures that look like tents. Very nice inside, tons of room. We loved our guide William. The food was good, it just got old after 6 days. Needed more variety. We rented a... More

We just back from a wonderful stay at Zulu Nyala! We did get it in a charity auction - most but not all did the same. By the time we were set to go, I had major buyers regret and I was concerned it would not live up to our last trip to Africa, It did! It was different but... More

We just returned from an amazing journey to South Africa. We stayed with Zulu Nyala for 6 nights. First and foremost, I want to thank the management at Zulu Nyala for being so very accommodating upon our arrival. We had booked into the "tents" but upon opening the door to the tent I found it would impact my asthma. (Note... More
