This safari lodge provides a genuine and authentic South African experience. First of all, the staff are extremely friendly and professional. The lodge combines the natural and raw experience of live animals in their natural environment with the comforts of a clean, safe, and friendly hotel with delicious food. We had Jenine as a guide and she is extremely knowledgeable,...

Its tough to write reviews like this about places that many people really like. If you go here, you will see lots of wildlife, great views, probably have a nice and knowledgeable guide, eat good food, and maybe meet some fellow travelers you like chatting with over dinner. We had those experiences and overall were physically comfortable. We saw elephants,...

Our trip was purchased on charity auction like most others. The resort itself was nice and the room was spacious and comfortable. We took 4 game drives on site and you...

We were winners of a charity auction ( and it appeared quite a few other people there were as well), and decided to make a three week excursion to South Africa because of it. We also were not staying the entire week allotted by the win. Zulu Nyala was in the middle of our vacation, so we had already had...

Zulu Nyala Game Lodge exceeded all my expectations! Most people here bought this trip at at charity auction as did us, so I was weary. We ended up staying 5 nights and wished we had stayed longer!

We visited the resort in the beginning of November. We had purchased the trip as part of a charitable auction. It was a great opportunity to meet like minded individuals. The lodge had a driver meet us at our hotel in Durban and drove us 3 hours to the lodge. We were warmly greeted and showed to our rooms. We...

From the moment we stepped into the airport arrivals area and were met by a Zulu Nyala driver, this week was about as perfect as it could get, thanks to the staff, facilities, and program at Zulu Nyala game reserve. We opted to stay in the Safari Game Lodge, which is within the game reserve itself. (The other two lodging...

three hour drive outside Durban consists of 3 lodges. The Game Lodge / Heritage Safari Lodge / Tented Camp. The last two are in the same complex. The Tented Camp is misnamed - it is 'gorgeous' - made of concrete , beautiful wood pillars / a log cabin look on the inside and then covered with canvas on the outside....
