Like 90% of the guests at Zulu Nyala, we won the trip at a charity auction and weren’t sure exactly what to expect. First of all, go! The staff at Zulu Nyala make everything extremely easy, from picking you up at the airport, assigning you a guide who takes you out twice a day as well as help plan other...

We stayed at the Safari Game Lodge in a beautiful room overlooking the pool and reserve. Could not have asked for a better room. The grounds are beautiful and all the staff very helpful. The food was very good with plenty of selection. Our guide was Chris, WOW!!! I had read reviews and requested him and was so happy we...

We enjoyed Zulu Nyala Game Lodge and stayed here three of our six nights. We spent the other three nights at the Tented Cabins at Heritage Safari Lodge. Both were equally great, with some minor pluses and minuses at each. We went on game drives twice a day, at 6 am and 3 pm, except when we had outside trips....

Being a frequent visitor to Zulu Nyala I am always marvelled by the improvements made at the Heritage Game Lodge in the past one year. The reception area had been redone and a lounge area added, which gives the meeting and greeting area a lot of colour and distinction. They have also started to construct a curio shop to in...

The package consisted of 6 nights at the Heritage Safari Lodge or Game Lodge with three meals and daily game drives in the morning and in the afternoon. We ended up staying two nights at...

Amazing!!! The room at the game Lodge was lovely! The food was buffet but some lunches were a la carte. The food was plentiful and average on the whole. Our Safari guide Chris's was awesome, very knowledgeable and friendly! We saw both white and black rhinos ( black are very rare). Elephants, cheetah, giraffes, zebra, water buffaloes ( including a...

My husband and I bid on this safari trip at my daughter's school fundraising auction and my parents bid on the same trip at my son's school auction. We were able to go together in April (perfect weather) and stayed at the Zulu Nyala Game Lodge. We both upgraded our rooms (overlooking the pool area) and it was worth every...

We stayed in a regular room for 3 nights here & 3 nights at the safari lodge. This lodge is located on top of a mountain in the middle of the game reserve. The lodge itself was beautiful, clean, and the food was excellent. The views from the pool area are breathtaking. Our guide for the week stay was Ronnie...

This was an amazing family safari experience. The lodge itself was beautiful- clean, friendly staff, wifi in the lobby (and even in Room 1 where we stayed), food was plentiful and delicious. What really made this experience amazing though were the game drives led by Christiaan Venter. The park is smaller than some but that was great b/c we got...

We had a terrific stay at the Zulu Nayala Game Lodge. Our room was very comfortable and the surrounding scenery was beautiful. We saw many animals and our ranger was Philemon who was both knowledgeable and entertaining. We took a few of the offered excursions and enjoyed them, especially our visit to the Zulu School and Village. We also loved...
