Certificate of Excellence
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 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.

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

The Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge is located a short drive from the Zulu Nyala game reserve which is relatively small in terms of the offerings in Africa. We won the booking in a charity auction like most people who stayed more than one night....More
