“ew ew ew!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2006

This hotel form the outset looks great and our first drive was nice but not mind blowing.

Down the road is Hluwe Hluwe which is well worth the visit and my favorite park.

The tree lodeges are drafty, the nets above the beds are usless, the bathroom had ants nesting on the loo seat, spider etc you name it! it really does need refurbishment and i would stay somewhere like the hill top lodge in hluwe luwe if you want this area.

One reddeming subject is the food was fantastic.

Would not recomend this for families as is a little to rustic

Stayed September 2006

Ubizane W, Manager at Zululand Tree Lodge, responded to this review, October 28, 2012
Ubizane wildlife Reserve, incorporating Zululand Safari Lodge and Zululand Tree Lodge has been bought by a single entity and is under new management. Since this change of ownership, Ubizane Wildlife Reserve as well as both Zululand Tree Lodge and Zululand Safari Lodge have under gone extensive changes.

Heat pumps have been installed at 12 of these units. All these units are fitted with air-conditioners, brand new beds, linen and toweling, as well as smaller trimmings. They have brand new cherry wood cupboards fitted, with marble top counters, bar fridges and huge glass sliding doors that open out to your own private viewing deck.

Pathways leading to Tree Lodge rooms that were cracked and broken have been redone. As well as clearing the riverbed in front of Tree Lodge rooms, to afford a better view/vista from our Tree Lodge private viewing deck.

We encourage everyone, weather new, or returning guests to come past and see Ubizane’s transformation for them. Our friendly staff is always willing to assist in any way they can, in order to make every guest’s stay enjoyable!
