Went to Zulu Nyala with a friend having bought the safari at a charity auction. Meghan made the time at Zulu Nyala memorable. She made sure to find the animals, which were great to see. One day at Zulu Nyala was enough. We went to...More

The rooms are among some of the best we have ever stayed in. They were huge. We only stayed for one night because we were on our way to Mozambique. Nevertheless, the rooms, the layout of the hotel and the landscaping were truly impressive. Dont...More

We won the trip at an auction. We were super excited to go. The one thing that is great is that the rooms are gorgeous as well as the grounds. Pictures do not do it justice. Our guide was horrible! Brett acted like he could...More

For being our first time in South Africa, I felt that Zulu Nyala provided an incredible platform for exposing us to the beautiful wildlife. The rooms were comfortable and the food was great (can’t really complain when there are plenty of options at the buffet)....More

About
Description
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
