One of about fifty rooms on the reserve, all served by a central hub with good buffet breakfast and dinner, enjoyed while overlooking nine crocodiles and hundreds of weaver birds nesting. Afternoon tea was served from 2pm to 5pm, accommodating those who went on morning or afternoon safaris. These were organised by the hotel to both the nearby Hluhluwe Imfolozi...

We stayed at this resort with our friends from Switzerland. Everything was clean and the rondawels very comfortable. If I can complain about anything it would just be that the food was cold when we ate in the restaurant one evening even the soup . Apart from that all else was good.

Nice dinner and breakfast at a great location. Very friendly staff. Close to the fantastic Hluhluwe NP. Definitely worth the money and absolutey a recommendation!

We've recently had the fortune to stay at the zululand safari lodges. They are just right, the right size, lovely big cosy bed, which is really needed after the long safari. The bar and restaurant are open air, lots of dark wood, lovely big sofas, you just sink into with your G & T, and sit and listen to the...

We stayed three nights and wished it could be longer. Cute bungalows at an affordable price. Friendly staff throughout. Excellent service. Lovely breakfast buffet overlooking a croc pond and a weaverbird colony (we were there outside the breeding season but were told yellow weaver).

We stayed two nights at this Safari Lodge and had a great time. The accommodation was in a Rondavel with a seperate bathroom, kitchen (well equipped) and dressing room/closet. The bed was large, comfortable and cosy. The view was of the bush where we regularly saw Nyala, Impala and even a giraffe one evening. The Lodge has a restaurant that...

This place is a very good deal. It's right on a small reserve where you can see some animals. The common areas are great and the room was spacious, well equiped and comfortable. A great place to stay before going to Hluhluwe National PArk

We were welcomed on such a hot Zululand day with a cold fruit juice and a refreshing towelette, arriving just as the resident crocodiles were about to be fed. After marvelling at this spectacle, we checked into our comfortable rondavel, complete with lovely bathroom and more-than adequate kitchenette. The view from the verandah of rondavel 15 was marred by it's...
