The rooms are large and spacious; staff are very friendly and helpful. Great excursions and a fun safari experience! The food was average but they have a great wine selection. We traveled in October and it was cold and rainy but the hotel provided blankets...More

The property has amazing grounds and the staff who tend to the carefully manicured landscape deserve much praise, the rooms are very basic but clean, the food mediocre, and the game reserve quite small...only 5000 acres. That said, for the price I paid for the...More

About
Description
The Heritage Safari Lodge was originally built in the 1940’s as a hotel and was a landmark pit-stop for weary travelers between Maputo and Durban. Acquired in 1996, the gracious building was lovingly restored to More its original colonial grandeur, enhanced with new accommodation, and tastefully themed to highlight Zululand’s unique cultural heritage.With buffet-style meals in our restaurant, the wide, welcoming veranda and our ‘human watering hole’ - the pub or thatched boma, warm and relaxing atmosphere is conducive to shared good times and conviviality. The sparkling pool is always inviting, and you’re sure to enjoy browsing our beautifully stocked curio shop for a few authentic African mementos. Less
