One of the most amazing small lodges you will ever find in SA. Self catering but with the most wonderful, friendly and helpful staff to do all the cooking and cleaning. Set in game rich Manyoni Reserve. You would be hard pressed to find better value for money.

This Bayete Zulu game reserve, near THANDA game reserve, in Zulu Natal, South Africa, affords s delightful experience of hand on experience with their three elephants, Rambo and his wife, both elephants are 36 years and their daughter Rachel is 9 years old. You get to touch them, feed them in their trunk and even directly in their mouth, touch their massive legs, ears and chest muscles. These are gentle giants and this was a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.

Such a brilliant chance to get up close and personal with these gentle giants. Can you imagine how humbling it is to stand right under the trunk of a full size bull elephant who allows you to put food right into his mouth? Wow! A once in a lifetime experience. The staff and handlers were helpful and knowledgable and made the whole event fascinating.

What a place! I couldn’t fault anything. The accommodation and the staff were fantastic. We hired out the whole lodge for a friends birthday celebration and had an absolute ball. Quality time at a quality place. Totally rejuvenated. The elephant interaction was a bucket list experience, I couldn’t stop smiling. All three rangers were fantastic and enthusiastic, we learnt a lot! Thanks Bayete Zulu team, we will definitely be back!
