I drove to the Game Lodge with 8 of my friends for a get-away weekend to celebrate the new year.
The drive was short and sweet, practically straight the whole way and the roads were pleasant to drive on.
The lodge was fully booked on our arrival with a vibrant bunch of people from Israel.
Being a young group ourselves, we thoroughly enjoyed the pool party and the trance party set up for them which we were all welcome to join.
The staff at Zulu Nyala Game Lodge are nothing short of outstanding. Very accommodating, passionate about people and always willing to assist.
The game drives we went on were excellent! Amon was our guide and he was incredibly informative and knowledgeable. He always made sure that our drives were different and packed with adventure! We got to get out of the game vehicle and walk right up to two young cheetah and the mother cheetah - what a breath-taking experience! We were even lucky enough to see a leopard, as they are generally scarce on the property.
The food at the game lodge was excellent too, so much variety and packed with flavor!
I am planning on going back at the end of the year for my annual 'bush adventure', this truely was a trip to remember.
My only regret was not finding out about this place sooner.
