Spent the first 6 days of a 16 day Africa trip at Zulu Nyala. I took my daughter and my teen aved grandchildren.. We stayed in the tents and found them to be lovely, clean and well appointed.
We stayed in the two farthest from the lodge. I did read some reviewers that said they were bothered by trains. We did not have this problem. I can say, however , that you hear everything from tents closest to you! As there were very few people in the tents while we were there, this was not a problem for us. Our guide Dion was wonderful and we saw every animal on the reserve up close. We did many of the side trips offered which were wonderful but very expensive. Our weather was perfect as it is winter in S. Afruca and our guide told us it is the best time of year for game viewing. The food was terrific, even my picky eatters really enjoyed the large number of choices . The wait staff are lovely. Always a smile and warm greeting. All in all, we had a terrific time that left us with oodles of pictures and great memories.
