Private camping
Oct 2020
This is a treat for campers .We stayed on a private remote site with rustic private ablutions and a kitchen .The property is large and has animals roaming around .The birds were fantastic with many bird hides to visit .One of the beauties about this property is that one can walk or run on the many dirt roads .The roads are sand but very well maintained .The staff were very friendly and we appreciated the daily clean
We will be back

Awesome

We stayed in the Oval caravan site with pvt ablutions, coming from a disappointing expericen at Sugar Loaf campsite in St Lucia this resort was a revelation - great, friendly service, beautiful well maintained grounds, great bush sites and game viewing included a nightly visit from a spotted Genet! Can definitely recommend this place for a stay / relaxing time away. Also very quiet!

Visit by members of KZN Branch of the Motorhome Club of SA , August 2017
Aug 2017 • Friends
As part of a short tour of Northern KZN , 9 motorhomes and 16 members enjoyed the hospitality and game viewing at Bonamanzi GR.We had been given clear directions as to the route to travel necessitating only 2-3 km of gravel road.The whole reception process ,supervised by the manageress ,was dealt with in a friendly and efficient manner.Having been escorted to our campsites,(two types had been arranged, some with private ablutions , some with communal ablutions),Our hosts ensured that everything was in order.The facilities , including the lapa, boma and braai area were well maintained and well stocked with firewood .The game drives were proof of a well managed reserve with special precaution taken to limit game theft.All the development of the lodges, chalets and other facilities reflect a sound understanding of conservation management. We are grateful to the owners for their policy of 30 % discount on campsites for pensioners ( out of season)

Great bush options
Jun 2016 • Couples
I have stayed at this lodge many times in various accommodation from camping to private lodge and always enjoy the experience. I prefer the camping as you have a real luxury bush camping experience at an affordable price.

Over rated and over priced!
Nov 2015 • Friends
While very fancy and really pleasant, there is nothing much more there than at the average 2 - 3 star lodges that are all over in this area. I suppose it depends if you are on a safari tour or a really expensive pampered holiday...at the end of the day you are just sleeping there and the bush, is the bush!!! Ask yourself what you really are going to be doing...hanging around the lodge all day or exploring the wilderness and attractions of the area? Then pay less, get the personal touch from family owned smaller lodges and enjoy so much more!

Beautiful great park
Jul 2015 • Family
This park is beautiful. The scenary changes all the time depanding on the road you take. We haven't seen that much animals as we hopped for, due to heavy rains the day before. The animals stayed hiding in the mountains.

Huge property. we could barely see much. There are lots of activities on offer such as open drives and bush walks but we went around in the car. Just as we entered, we were greeted by the beautiful antelopes all around and zebras. W really felt bad at not being able to explore it much!

5 stars is not enough...we had an exceptional experience .
Aug 2015 • Family
If there was a 6th star available this place would get it !
This is a gem, the staff are outstanding, the management like family and the quality of food and lodgings beats all we expected. We stayed for 3 weeks in Dinizulu, it was the most peaceful, amazing private setting with our own pool with wildlife wandering in and out of the areas by 3 chalets and lounge areas. the game drives perfect, the proximity to all the best reserves is exceptional and the housekeeping is the best I have ever encountered. this is the 3rd time in 8 years I and my children have stayed here but this year Dwight and his team were simply 6 star. Don't miss this jewel in South Africa . We WILL be back. this was not a holiday , it was like being royalty. We will recommend to everyone.
