Set in the heart of Zululand, this multiple award-winning lodge offers the ultimate five star safari experience, with various luxury accommodation options (these include all meals and game activities. Those wanting true authenticity should probably opt for the luxury tented safari camp: this non-electrified camp affords a 'real deal' taste of the bush and allows you to get up close and personal with the prolific wildlife in these parts! 15 minutes drive from the main lodge, these beautiful colonial-style villas offer every creature comfort (including giant four poster beds!) and incredible views across the reserve.
Opting for all-out opulence, I'm staying in the sumptuous main lodge. All nine villas are wonderfully spacious (220m2!) secluded sophisticated. And with stylish lounge and master bedroom, shaded viewing-deck, private infinity pool and gorgeous bathroom with oversized oval tub, I struggle to leave such surroundings but alas the astounding beauty of this 7800 ha reserve beckons.
