Like pretty much everyone else, we purchased this six day safari as part of a silent auction at our daughter's school. Although we purchased six days, we decided to only stay for two days at Zulu Nyala and do another 2-3 day safari at a 5 star neighboring private game lodge. The game drives at Zulu Nyala were very efficient and the rangers were well aware of where the animals were on this 5,000 acre property. The staff was friendly as well. It is a perfectly fine facility for budget conscious visitors.
- 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
