recently visited for my anniversary and it is the ultimate destination for relaxation. Beautiful surroundings, accommodation exceeded expectations, the manager/owner of the lodge met all my requests and went above and beyond to ensure we had a special stay, not to mention that the food at boma restaurant is amazing...nothing fancy but the meals were mouth watering...will definitely be back

We went in for drinks at the restaurant. The view from up there was fantastic and you can see the beautiful rolling hills. Even though we did not eat, the menu is quite versatile. There's is also a well stocked up shop selling African crafts.

Very interactive, entertaining and educational package. I was a little disappointed that none of the "Big 5" were on the property but I still enjoyed seeing the exotic animals as we went through the rugged terrain. I also loved that it had different attractions in 1.

Monday morning we decided to go to the phezulu Safari park. For R150 a person the value is amazing . A Zulu cultural tour and dance is included and so is a tour of the reptile and snake park. The Zulu dance was the most amazing I've ever seen. It's about 45 minutes long and well worth the visit. The... More

I think the best thing about PheZulu is the drive through Valley of 1000 Hills. It is absolutely beautiful out there. Also, I enjoyed learning a bit about Zulu culture. Being that I live as an expat in Senegal, I usually don't play tourist very often. I enjoyed the reptile park and the Zulu experience. I will say that it... More

This is the place to visit if you want to experience high performance of Zulu dance performed by very energetic group of people. The curio shop is well stocked with all kinds of African curio art and bead work. The safari tour is amazing, you got to see all sorts of wild animals.

We chose to come to Phezulu after deciding that going to the bigger parks was too expensive with children under 6 (who can't go on the open sided game drives). This was the perfect choice for them because we went in an open-sided vehicle and got really really close to the animals. An hour was the perfect length for them,... More

Lots of folks make the trip to PheZulu an hour from Durban to visit the Safari Park. As a Durban native, I've always enjoyed the Zulu dancing and village life tour (75 minutes) held four times daily at the Park. This is an excellent peek into Zulu social customs and the dancing is great. The photography opportunities, with the Valley... More
