The service was great from the person picking us up from the airport to the food service people to guides. Howard was a fantastic guide we could not have asked for better. He taught us about the animals but also the land, the stars and the culture. He really took his time to teach us not show us. The food...

Visited Game Lodge for the first time and had one of my most memorable stays I have had in a long time on holiday. The lodge is rustic but very comfortable with all the conveniences. No TV in rooms which is great as the whole idea is to be one with nature. To see wild animals right outside your door...

My wife purchased at auction, we were a bit concerned about the property being relatively small comparatively and somewhat lesser known. However we had an amazing trip. Our guide Dionne was absolutely outstanding. Knew the property and the animals so well he kept us entertained even in quit moments. He worked so hard to get us the right experience and...

We too purchased this trip at an auction, never thinking of going to South Africa before, but this was such an adventure. The hotel and personnel were great. We enjoyed the food, especially all the fresh fruits at breakfast. Our guide was William, he really made this trip. He was very knowledgeable, great driver and enabled us to get great...

Got the safari for my husband and two teenage boys at an auction. Never thought about going to South Africa before but I sure am glad we did. It was a trip of a lifetime. Lodge was great. Manie Esterhuizen was our guide and he was the best. Kept us entertained the whole time. He was so knowledgeable about everything...

we stayed there only one night last May; this is a magnificient resort located on top of a small mountain; the scenery is superb; we had room 28, which is in fact a very large suite with two bedrooms and a double shower.

Like every other international traveler visiting Zulu Nyala we purchased the 6 night stay through a charity auction. We ended up doing three nights in the tents (we were in T7) and three nights in the Game lodge (room 35) Note there are three options to stay when you come here: -The game lodge--this is up on the hill, and...

One of my best friends had an Africa trip on her bucket list and I came across an amazing deal to take a photo safari at an auction. I could not have been more pleased with this purchase!

We stayed here just this past week, July 6th through the 12th. There is so much I can say, but for now, (until I can properly leave a detailed review), let me just say that this place is 80% the cards you're dealt and 20% enjoying the experiences. If you don't get a nice room or a decent guide (beg...

We are like others that won this trip through a charity auction and I really didn't know what to expect. I was very impressed. The Game Lodge is a very nice, large facility and we stayed there the entire week. Our room was very "roomy" and the bathroom was huge with a full soaking tub and separate shower. A lot...
