“Brilliant group stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

We stayed as part of a group at Zebra Hills and were shown some real, hearfelt hospitality by Lin and Kevin, the owners and managers of Zebra Hills. The lodge's best feature is the wonderful, sprawling garden that sits immediately next to a watering hole. Breakfast and high tea were served under umbrellas, real out-of-africa style, while kudu, nyala and warthog socialised by the watering hole just metres away. The lodge accommodation itself is a mixed bag - but the owner is about to undertake upgrading works, and every room was clean and comfortable. Stuffed animal heads on the walls are the only slightly off note, but again these are just a hangover from the lodge's former status as a hunting lodge, and will be removed by the owners soon. The food was consistently fantastic, and the owners and staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. Highlight was a herd of giraffe at the top of the road. A brilliant place to stay and highly recommended. Only 30 mins from Hluhluwe.

Room Tip: Try to book the family rooms on the other side of the boma that are independent from the lodge.

How lucky we were to find Zebra Hills at such short notice when our previous safari accomodation had fallen through. Lyn and Kevin made us feel so very welcome with our young children (jsut under 3 and 5 years). Our rooms were spotless and very comfortable having everything that we needed and were serviced daily. Our meals were great and we felt very well fed and there was always plenty availaible. Lyn and/or Kevin spoke with us each day to find our pur plamns and ensure that meal times worked in with what we were doing and were very accomodating. Coupled with the beuatiful gardens and pool around the lodge our holiday was very relaxing. We got lucky on safari too - seeing giraffe, zebra, rhino, elephant, buffalo, wilderbeast, warthogs, nyala, impala, kudu, vultures......etc. Would highly recommend Zebra Hills for a great place to relax and safari!

My family along with several other friends and their families stayed in Zebra Hills early April.

They were wonderfully friendly and accommodating even before we'd booked. Once we arrived we were offered high tea and went for our first game drive and it just got better.

Throughout, the food was excellent, grounds lovely, game drives entertaining and topped off by a surprise Zulu dance in the Boma the night before we left.

Highly recommended.
