    Wonderful Stay
    We had an amazing stay at Phezulu. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Game drive was great, our guide really made sure to get us the best view of the animals and was extremely knowledgeable. I will definitely go back, lovely to be out of the hustle and bustle of city life, but close enough to shops, restaurants, highways etc.

    Energetic
    Quite an interesting experience. Very energetic dance performance but the dancing troupe have circummed to western morality standards regarding dress modes for unmarried maidens. Photography is a little difficult as being seated in a traditional pavilion one is shooting into the light.

    Reptile Centre
    A flying visit to the Reptile Centre which offered more than we expected. We were offered a guide, Robert, who was excellent and was engaging with my two boys, 7 and 4. They had an amazing time and learned a lot. Robert even got a couple of snakes out for the boys to hold. Felt truly welcomed throughout.

The most amazing place ever!
It exceeded our expectations. The snake and crocodile park is incredible. The curio shop is well stocked.
We enjoyed Zulu dancing.
There is something for everyone.
It is well worth the visit.

It was peaceful, quiet and very nice. I enjoyed the game drive. The addition of a braai stand overlooking the hills was at great gesture.

This was the second time we have stayed overnight and the third time we have been on the game drive and definitely want to do it again; and that's really the best recommendation isn't it? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with the game drive as the highlight. The guides were all great and went "above and beyond" to keep the drives interesting. Each has his own particular interests so you get a different perspective each time.

The set up of the 2 bedroom accommodation at the lodge doesn’t make sense. No privacy at all i.e. no doors in any of the bedrooms. The second bedroom closes with a curtain. The place is in need of renovations (very old closets, different tiles on bath tub. They need to add more pictures for people to know what they are booking and so there are no surprises.

I'm not sure how to post pictures of the chalet, but I took to show how bad this place was. One of the kitchen doors fell off when I opened it. The 'oven' was filthy and full of blistering 'stuff', the lounge suite smelt dreadful and so did the beds. The bath/shower didn't have a curtain or glass and had black mould. The toilet had been patched up and the cupboards in the bathroom came away from the wall when I opened them. If we hadn't read the 'manual' we wouldn't have known about the 'no drinking their water' and non was provided, I was thankful we did have water or we would have been very stuck. Inside the bedroom cupboards were very dirty. It was so bad we didn't even want to have coffee in the morning, we headed off immediately to get a takeaway and get out of there. Very disappointing as I thought it was a tourist place and would be good.
