Didn't know what to expect when we won a stay here through a charity auction, but were pleasantly surprised. Amenities were clean and nice (some people complained of bugs, but we're in Africa!), staff and guides were amazingly nice and the safari rides were really enjoyable. The package tours were ridiculously over-priced, but you can drive around quite easily and would recommend renting a car-get to the Indian Ocean, little towns around it are quaint and beautiful, the drive through the countryside is breath-taking and the view is incredible. The food in the buffet is really awesome, since it's a different kind of local game each evening. Only complaint is that it was kind of empty.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
