Reviewed 3 February 2013

We spent 6 days at the zeranka lodge and we both had travelled a lot before but never ever had such nice hosts like Marcelle and Allan.
They really care for their customers, they have very good advice, nice tour operators. We really appreciated their service.

Lovely rooms, clean and great hospitality. Close to a nice beach. We were very well looked after and served a greate breakfast. We only had one night, but we will absolutely return the next visit to South Africa.

We had a great first family holiday at Zeranka. We were well looked after and made to feel right at home, which is great when you spend 9 days in one location. The rooms are spacious and clean and we had a massive bed, which helps when you are 6ft5". Breakfast was amazing every morning. Spent many hours on the loungers next to the huge pool. They provided facilities to braai which is a must for every South African on holiday. Beach is only a few meters away through a gate and short path. Thank you to Marcelle for everything! Vera-lee misses you!

Our family of four stayed in the family lodge. It was large, well equipped and very clean. We had direct access to the beach through a secure gate. The large pool and entertainment area were well used by our family. The breakfasts are to die for. Marcelle and Allan were wonderful hosts and the friendly staff made our stay a memorable one. There was ample secure off street parking
We will certainly stay at Zeranka Lodge when we are again in Durban.
Thanx once again to our wonderful hosts, Allan and Marcelle Hold.
Best Wishes,

We spent 7 fantastic days at Zeranka Lodge. We were so well looked after...excellent breakfast, the speciality is of course the omelette...don't miss it. Room very clean,big pool in a well planted garden...two minutes walk to the beach. Beautiful and safe area. Good restaurants nearby,10 minutes drive to Gateway shopping center and 5 mins from La Lucia Mall, 20 minutes drive from airport.Helpful and smiling staff. At Marcelle's you arrive as a guest and you leave as a friend...Each guest is special.
