TRAVEL-READYhere to receive and host our guests!
We here at Zulu Nyala, are travel-ready and excited to be consistently receiving domestic and international guests. It’s always such an honour to host all, knowing that the goodbye is ultimately one which has resulted from you arriving as strangers, yet leaving as part of the Zulu Nyala Family!

Meet our General Manager – Vinodh Haripersad!
Vinodh, fondly known as ‘V’ – has been with the Zulu Nyala Group since September 2015 with Zulu Nyala Country Manor in Johannesburg having been his main focus.
He actively assisted with the other two properties during that time and, has now moved to Hluhluwe, KwaZulu-Natal as the General Manager of our Lodge and Heritage properties after stepping up his duties during the last two years. ‘V’ was influential in getting the properties to that ‘travel-ready’ point and continues to keep a watchful eye on all plus, actively engage with our guests!
Look out for his smiling face and unbelievable energy when you stay with us. He has an incredible support team to assist and make your stay a home-away-from-home experience!

RESERVEAutumn approaches and a good summer season, we had!

What a fantastic summer we have had! Bountiful rains have provided exceptional grazing and browsing for our Reserve animals which have in turn, had an incredible breeding season. An absolute pleasure to see so many young animals, birds and smaller creatures happy in their surroundings.

We move into Autumn with full dams, good fodder and animals in good condition. The sightings have been wonderous with many not-often-seen animals making cameo appearances. Leopard, Serval, Hyena, reptiles and wonderous birds have graced our Reserve and spoilt our guests with their presence. We offer two game-drives a day (times are season dependent) where you are hosted by our highly skilled Rangers who have exceptional knowledge to share. Our privately owned Reserve is but 5km from the Heritage Safari Lodge & Tented Camp affording easy access with the promise of many photo opportunities to create those forever memories

Acquired in 1996, the gracious building was lovingly restored to its original grandeur, enhanced with new accommodation and is tastefully themed to highlight Zululand’s unique cultural heritage.

With buffet-style meals in our restaurant, the welcoming veranda and our ‘human watering hole’ – the pub or thatched boma – warm and relaxing atmosphere is conducive to shared good times and conviviality.
