Zululand Lodge is a privately owned tented camp on the 800 hectare uKuwela wildlife conservancy north of Hluhluwe town and bordering Phinda Game Reserve, in northern KwaZulu Natal. The lodge is built on a slope with breath taking views of the Msinene River valley and surrounding bushveld. The camp offers 9 tastefully decorated en-suite permanent canvas rooms sleeping up to 18 people.

Our elegantly furnished central lodge area allows you to put your feet up and relax in the open-air cushioned lounge area. Enjoy tasty home-made meals in the spacious dining area included in your Dinner, Bed and Breakfast rate. Venture upstairs to our viewing deck which offers uninterrupted scenery, boasting spectacular sunsets for enjoying sundowners. Our locally guided bush walks give the opportunity to observe the abundant birdlife of the area, and to try and spot some of the plains game on our reserve (or you can take a short drive to a nearby Big 5 game reserve for a more adventurous experience).

The lodge is accessible by sedan car on +/-5km gravel road.

The camp was designed and built from the ground up as an environmentally sustainable project. We have a solar power system, LED lighting throughout camp, and are completely off grid. Rain water is collected in tanks and used for cleaning, and grounds irrigation, and the small waterhole in front of camp. The black water is treated in a double septic tank system and we provide only biodegradable bathroom soaps. The camp is staffed 90% from the local community and we have an in-house staff training and development program.

The conservancy land was originally mixed cattle and game farm, which is being rehabilitated to wildlife conservation. This on going project includes soil erosion control, reintroduction of wildlife species, fence removal and anti poaching efforts. We are very proud of our resident leopard population and the hippo pods.

Our friendly and welcoming staff are on site to make your stay most enjoyable, whilst giving you the privacy to unwind and listen to the natural sounds of the surrounding bushveld. Whether you are a couple looking for a tranquil break away in wilderness setting, keen birders or a family wanting to enjoy quality time together, Zululand Lodge is the ideal getaway.

Property Facilities:
The luxurious main lodge has a sprawling cushioned lounge area, a large dining area, a small reference library, and breathtaking views from our viewing deck/upstairs bar. A small waterhole in front of camp attracts nyala, zebra, impala and wonderful birdlife. At night enjoy stories round the campfire in our star-studded boma area.

Delicious meals are enjoyed in the dining area with a range of traditional food being served. We offer self-service tea and coffee making facilities in the dining area all day, and a limited range of drinks at the viewing deck bar and lounge.

Area Information:
Zululand Lodge has an ideal location if you want to explore the region, with easy access on good roads, and plenty of variety in local attractions.

The Msinene River is a tributary to the World Heritage site iSimangaliso Wetland Park. The reserve is close to Hluhluwe-iMfolozi, Phinda & Mkuzi Game Reserves and Lake St Lucia. The closest town is Hluhluwe 20km away while King Shaka international airport (Durban) is only 3 hours south (270km).

You can self drive in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi & Mkuzi Game Reserves, or book a guided open vehicle game drive with a local guide. Lake St Lucia offers boat cruises and canoeing excursions while Sodwana Bay (70km) offers scuba diving. There are also a number of local community craft stalls, coffee shops in nearby mDuku or Hluhluwe.

In Room Facilities:
Each of the permanent tents has 2x three-quarter beds, comfy linen, handy bedside reading lamp and luggage rack. Each unit has an en-suite bathroom with flushing toilet and hot water shower powered by gas geyser, and is stocked with bath and hand towels for your comfort. You can also relax reading a book on your own private deck, and the units are carefully positioned amongst the indigenous vegetation to allow enough privacy to have an afternoon snooze.
