we stayed in the tents for 6 days/nights and we had a great time. we slept deeply every night - even during a stormy night - and always had lots of friendly interactions with the lodge staff, other guests ( a mix of europeans and north americans), and all the animals wondering around the grounds.
we did a full day tour to the big Hluhluwe Reserve and other shorter tours to the elephant interaction, the cheetah rehab place (alcoholic cheetahs), and other local sights.
we flew into Durban and drove up: a 3 hour easy drive, plan your daylight though: it gets DARK here and the roads are not easy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
