Spent six nights at Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge for a conference. The food was spectacular, with several options available from the extensive buffet for every breakfast, lunch, and supper. Accommodations are varied, with even their cheapest being comfortable and clean. My shared room had a lion-foot tub as well as a decent sized shower. Wifi is available but the connection isn't particularly strong outside of the reception area. Game drives are available in both the Zulu Nyala Game Park and the nearby Hluhluwe-uMfolozi Game Reserve, where you have the chance to see the Big 5 as well as many bird species, etc. Knowledgeable game rangers make these drives an enjoyable and informative experience.
- 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
