We stayed at Zulu Nyala in the tented camp rooms. Loved them, but we love camping anyway. The tents were comfortable and charming, with good washroom facilities. Might be hot in other seasons, but nice and comfortable in September. We swam in the pool, visited...More

If our 6-night stay with Zulu Nyala would not have included 3-nights at the Zulu Nyala Game Lodge, we would probably have cut our stay short. Positive: Our room was very large and clean (the fact that I encountered an enormous black beetle in my...More

A large facility. Rooms were nice but not too fancy. Food was sometimes good sometimes not so good and served as a buffet. No beverages at lunch or dinner other than coffee or tea and you have to buy water once you drink the 500ml...More

Everyone won an auction for a week. They make their money on airport transfers and extra excursions. Pricey, but often worth the price. Though it is a game reserve, after awhile you feel like you are driving thru a zoo. Fairly predictable that you will...More

A week at Zulu Nyala exceeded our expectations!! We stayed in the Hemingway Tents and were VERY comfortable. We avoided the traditional hotel experience and were able to really relax and get away from our fast paced life at home. The staff are so friendly...More

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

Hi. I think we paid $20 a day to our guide, and about $10 a day for the rest of the staff. Hope that helps.
