Stayed one night with my son who was spending four nights.Staff very friendly however housekeeping and immediate surrounds need attention. Pop corn remains from previous guests in lounge. Shortage of toilet paper, crockery and cutlery. Outside was littered with cigarette butts. Light bulbs not working in the kitchen. Toilet needs 5 flushes before remains are flushed. Braai facilities need upgrading.....suggest a staircase from the balcony to the braai area for easy access. Housekeeping service not available on the Sunday when we departed. Had to make our own beds and clean up. Trout fishing was amazing!!!
Suggest binoculars in the cabin for game viewing as the wildlife and birdlife is amazing.
This is a great venue but A.T.D. (Attention to Detail) is required.
Environmentally there is some serious erosion. Suggest gabions be put in place to arrest this problem.
This venue has great potential and can be put on the "map" with some finer touches and exposer into the market place.

Thank you for your review of Nandi House. We would like to apologise for the few small inconveniences you experienced, as we pride ourselves on a high standard of service and cleanliness.
As a Stewardship site with Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, we have an extensive environmental management program in place which also includes erosion control and veld management, so this is an area which is receiving attention.
Your suggestions of binoculars is great - we will definitely consider this.
We look forward to welcoming you back to ZuluWaters in the future

We started off our honeymoon with 2 nights in the self-catering lake cottage and it was absolutely amazing. Quiet, peaceful, no cell-phone signal and breathtakingly beautiful. Already planning a return visit.

Beautiful place. Stayed in Shaka Lodge and what an amazing experience it was. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a serene, relaxing place. The staff was amazing, food good.
The rooms are beautifully decorated, big tidy and luxurious. Has to be one of the best places I have been to.

We stayed in the self-catering lake house in the middle of the reserve. It was a complete escape with no cell phone signal and only the sounds of nature. The guided game drives were excellent, as was simply sitting on the patio and watching the game up close and personal. The staff also arranged a delicious picnic for us under, which also afforded us the opportunity to watch the game walking along the nearby stream. All-in-all, highly recommended!

This game reserve is a very authentic place which is maybe one of the last pradises in South Africa. The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The chief prepares phantastic local dishes with meat and fish directly from the property. If I could rate him, I would certainly give him a Michelin star! The nature and the animals are impressive and time seems to stand still when driving around in the jeeps. The rooms are very beautifully decorated and of highest standard, the living room and dining room invite for cosy breaks in front of the fire place and dinners where you just wish that the evenings would never end.
A true experience, adventure and re-treat. Certainly one of the best vacations I ever had in my life.
