Some of the rooms are more spacious than others... if you're not happy with the assigned 'standard room', you have the option to upgrade or move rooms, and if space if available, the staff will do what they can to accommodate. We stayed in Rm. 10 - it had a great view and close to the pool. The shower head was the only issue with this room, as well as the water took some time to warm up in the bathroom. There are no tv's in any of the rooms. 6 nights was more than enough time to spend at the game lodge. We enjoyed the game rides and met some fun people. Our guide was wonderful (Ronnie) and went out of his way to find the animals and make our game rides memorable and fun. We saw 4 of the 5 'big 5' (no lions) at this reserve. The animals seem happy and healthy...especially at the feed lots!
- 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
