Had a lovely time in Phezulu park. Only 40 min from Durban Centre. They have a looooot of crocodiles and snakes and gave a good explanation on their habits and specifics. And the surroundings are beautiful as well!

The distance to get there is good not that far. Performance was good. Should involve the guest to dance as well. The love story that they told was very cute and interesting and gave insight to the zulu nation.

We took our young girls here for the day and never got 'I'm bored!'. Fantastic Zulu dance ceremony and they also have lots of animals, crocodile feeding and talks from the keepers. Set on a beautiful backdrop, great place for families!

This is our second stay at Phe Zulu, and you can be sure it won't be our last. Tristan and Kerry sorted out our last minute changes, looked after our hire car while we shot off south for a few days with friends and generally did everything they could to make our stay as easy as possible. We were here... More

Took my American girlfriend there to experience the proper African Zulu culture and even though it was the middle of winter and it was cold and windy on the day of visit, we still had a blast and the dancers were still so friendly and warm and very inviting to the audience. Lots of little things to do and definitely... More

This is such a great spot to spend some time. Zule dancers and a reptile park make this interesting for children and tourists. If you are brave enough...get your pic taken with a python or baby alligator after an informative snake show. The food here is really yummy and prices are ver good. Try the crocodile pops! Tastier than we... More

The Cultural Experience was well executed with a great story line of loves true way. Dancers are happy to pose for pictures. The reptile park showed crocs, snakes and turtles in abundance, whilst the food in the restaurant was good. Nice souvenir shop. And of course the backdrop is the awesome Valley of 1000 Hills.

recently visited for my anniversary and it is the ultimate destination for relaxation. Beautiful surroundings, accommodation exceeded expectations, the manager/owner of the lodge met all my requests and went above and beyond to ensure we had a special stay, not to mention that the food at boma restaurant is amazing...nothing fancy but the meals were mouth watering...will definitely be back

We went in for drinks at the restaurant. The view from up there was fantastic and you can see the beautiful rolling hills. Even though we did not eat, the menu is quite versatile. There's is also a well stocked up shop selling African crafts.
