Went on a trip to KZN for 6 weeks with a friend who was working there and took 5 days out to go on safari up in Zululand. Everything was like being in a fairy-tail, but with Lions and Hippos roaming freely! The facilities were brilliant, good food and a comfy cabin to sleep in. Trip of a lifetime.

The lodge itself is very hospitable,with friendly staff who try their very best to make you enjoy your...

The Zululand Tree Lodge is located right in the middle of a private reserve. Lots of animals (impalas, monkeys, crocodiles, and even ostriches) are there to welcome the guests on arrival. The rooms in the trees are absolutely lovely, and have full comfort. Regarding the staff, they are very kind and always trying to suit your needs. They kindly accepted...

BUT seeing the crocodiles...

What a beautiful lodge! One can totally relax in the bushveld. The rooms were private and quiet. It would be so nice to have game drinking at the waterhole at the restaurant, instead of the crocodiles.
