Don't know what more I can add to previous reviews. We like so many others, were there because of an auction. We spent one night in the tent which was really lovely, but the evening we arrived the strong winds created too much noise in the tent and we were unable to sleep. We asked to be moved to a different room and fortunately it was not a problem. The staff and guides were great. It really is the guide that makes the trip. Our guide was Jacques and his knowledge, respect and love for the animals was apparent from our first jeep ride. We also took three trips off site and enjoyed them. The first was to Phinda where we were fortunate enough to see the lions. Our second trip was to the local school and market. We found the trip to be enlightening and was helpful in understanding the culture and recent political events. Our third trip was to St. Lucia which included a boat ride, lunch, and a visit to the Indian Ocean.
All the trips off-site were great and would highly recommend. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff - particularly those in the reception area and Mike in the gift shop. All were extremely helpful. It's a great place for families with teens.

- The Heritage Safari Lodge was originally built in the 1940’s as a hotel and was a landmark pit-stop for weary travelers between Maputo and Durban. Acquired in 1996, the gracious building was lovingly restored to its original colonial grandeur, enhanced with new accommodation, and tastefully themed to highlight Zululand’s unique cultural heritage.With buffet-style meals in our restaurant, the wide, welcoming veranda and our ‘human watering hole’ - the pub or thatched boma, warm and relaxing atmosphere is conducive to shared good times and conviviality. The sparkling pool is always inviting, and you’re sure to enjoy browsing our beautifully stocked curio shop for a few authentic African mementos. ... more less
