Our first two nights at Nyala Zulu were at the game lodge: nice, but the Safari lodge beats it hands down. First off, lodge is situated on the top a hill with views across the expanse. Our room was really nice, though they had these oversized chairs that were too large to get comfortable in. I know, how is that possible for a fat-assed American?!? The dining hall at the Safari lodge was much nicer. The dining room has a fantastic view if you can score a table near the deck. I thought the food was just a notch better than at the Game lodge. Our guide Philoman from the Game lodge remained our guide which was great. We lucked out with the family from Boston that shared our vehicle: they were a lot fun on the game drives. Again, if this is your first time on South Africa safaris this is a good place to start. None of these are inexpensive, but this is a better bargain (tongue in cheek) that some others.
- 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
