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.

We stayed in one of the "tents" which was beautifully appointed with a super comfortable bed and great amenities. Enjoyed our 4-night stay. Our safari guide, Bernie, was amazing and with her, we saw many amazing sights, from animals to scenery, as well as learning more about the country.

Congratulations! Like 99.9% of the other travelers to Zulu Nyala, you've bought your photo safari at a charity auction, just as we did. Now you have lots of questions about it, just as we did! Having done our trip there in September, 2014, I hope you'll find this perspective useful, particularly in the context of the season we traveled in.... More

We stayed in the tents. Well appointed. Remember that you are in Africa ... The drainage for porch is into tent with some rains. We were there for first week of rainy season. We needed our down jackets most of the day. Also needed rain coats. Food was good and plentiful. You need to drink bottled water. Guides Manie, Jacques,... More

The Zulu Nyala Heritage Lodge far exceeded our expectations of 3 star accommodation and service...a small family getaway really turned into the most wonderful memorable experience...its not always easy travelling with kids but both our 7 year old and 2 year old were also accomodated so well...two special people need a very special mention, viz, Candice and Menzi(the chef)...even though...
