Our room was comfortable, clean and quite large. It felt safe and within a short walk to the reception and dining area. The people working were kind and helpful. There wasn't internet service in the rooms but you could go to the reception area and use the internet connection there.

We stayed 2 nights at Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge from 8th to 10th April 2016. When we arrived, we booked a game drive at the reception for the day after on the morning at 6.00 am. We choosed this hotel because they organize their own game drives with their own rangers. Unfortunately, we received a call on the d-day...

First of all let me start my review by noting that I purchased the Zulu Nyala (ZN) at a silent auction like most of the guests who were at the property. We were a little apprehensive about this trip having never heard of ZN and also never having visited South Africa or even the continent of Africa before. So first...

A clean, fun, professional place to begin your adventure. The car service from the airport is what most people used, we rented a car. The grounds are constantly cared for, the zebras grazing next in the tents in the morning were a surprise. Caged crocs (natural setting - pond and water lilies) baking in the sun during the day. Plenty...

The first time I've been in South Africa and I had an incredible trip. We stayed at the Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge and took two tours a day. Our tour guide, Bernie was amazing. she was so knowledgable and so positive with our touring different locations. We didn"t want to go home.

We stayed at the Heritage safari lodge for 5 nights, and participated in the property's included daily safari drives. The lodging itself is very nice, the food is all-inclusive and truly fantastic. My expectation for all-inclusive food is generally that it will be average, but give it to this resort for preparing excellent meals three times per day. The resort...

Stayed at the Heritage Lodge from 1/30/2016 to 2/2/2016. We had won this trip through Bidding For Good auction. Our room was very clean and was equipped with a refrigerator and TV and a large bathroom. The food for breakfast and lunch was very good but the main entrees for dinner was usually not to my liking. There was a...

We really enjoyed our week stay at Zulu nyala. We had two Hemingway tents (22 and 6) and watched the sun set each night from our porch. The tents are not what you would call a tent if you are into camping and are very comfortable and modern. On windy nights - they can be loud if you are a...

Wife and I spent 6 days at the Heritage First off it was a great experience, not sure you can call this a vacation! But, you can be as busy as you wish, and we opted to experience as much as we could during our visit. Multiple morning and afternoon safaris during our visit, and we need to add -...

We spent 6 days on safari at Zulu Nyala. We stayed in one of the Hemingway Tented Cabins. Everything about Zulu Nyala exceeded our expectations. It's the type of place you leave and immediately start planning a return visit! We loved it so much! Our guide was Peace and he was wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We did game drives...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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. ... more   less
