Very comfortable 2 Bedroom Chalet with 2 Bathrooms, bush atmosphere with outside braai area and fireplace, view on the bush, situated inside the Zululand Rhino Reserve, saw lots of animals except Rhinos, ideal long weekend stay over, approx. 12km gravel road to the Lodge inside the Reserve, nearest town is Mkuze, ideal for fishing trips to Pongolapoort Dam

We had a wonderful experience at African spirit, and had the privilege of being able to expose our children to the wild, one of which is very keen on wildlife and wants to be a game ranger, so the game drive was the best for him and we were lucky enough to see Cheetah chasing a waterbuck - accomodation was...

Nice, friendly and they provide amazing game drives! The room was cosy and the kitchen fully equipped. We spent only one night but I wish we'd have stayed more to discover other parts of the reserve and the sourronding area.

We had the best time at this cozy lodge, staying for two nights in October 2011. The hosts Hank and Lizel and their staff were so friendly, it felt like staying in a family home more than a "hotel". We were lucky enough to have the game drives all to ourselves! The house and our bungalow were spotless and the... More
