About iZungla Lodge
iZungla Lodge is a luxurious and discreet self-catering lodge, accommodating up to eight people, situated within Kuleni Game Park, a securely fenced park 18 kilometres from Hluhluwe. It stands in 150 hectares of pristine, indigenous sand forest in the heart of the Elephant Coast on the eastern seaboard of South Africa, a conservation area of unparalleled diversity. Kuleni Game Park has its own game, but no predators, thus allowing guests to follow walking trails through the park.
iZungla is a secluded, secure and private haven where one can be alone or with friends, lying at the private swimming pool or sitting around the fireplace, enjoying quiet walks and viewing the trees, the birds and the plains game. It is a wonderful place for a retreat because there are many spots that invite self-exploration and it’s perfect for couples in need of uninterrupted time together.
iZungla Lodge only takes one booking at a time and visitors always have the entire lodge to themselves. It is perfect for business and leisure use, for families with children over six years old and for friends.
The Main Lodge
The main lodge houses the living areas - a dining area, conversation area around the fireplace, a comfortable lounge area with ceiling fans and an outdoor patio with dining area next to the private swimming pool. Huge sliding doors fold back into a recess to allow the breeze to give the feeling of being outdoors. A gas barbecue is located next to the pool deck.
The main lodge is equipped with DSTV (satellite television), a DVD / CD player and VCR, a high quality, surround-sound HiFi system as well as an ice-making machine. Outside is a water hole, and if you are lucky, you might spot an animal coming for its early morning drink. A fully-fitted, high-quality farmhouse style kitchen includes microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, and a full-time housekeeper is on site to clean up, make beds and wash dishes.
The sleeping accommodation consists of four free-standing bedroom suites away from the main lodge. The suites are positioned for privacy and appreciation of the bush and each have their own private deck. Two suites have king-size four poster beds and the other two suites each have two single beds, all extra length and cocooned to embrace the forest.
The suites each have a dressing area, an open bathroom with a luxury bath and vanity, separate toilet, outside shower, and sitting area with a comfortable sofa and writing desk. They are equipped with air conditioner, hairdryer, and tea and coffee facilities and quality linen and towels. Enjoy outdoor showers in each suite which are especially captivating in the dappled light of day.
Close by are the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve, the private Phinda Game Reserve both which offer Big Five viewing; and pristine beaches along the Indian Ocean which offer amongst the world’s finest opportunities to snorkel and scuba dive, turtle tours and whale watching. Adventurous pursuits such as canoeing, microlighting, quad biking, horse riding and many more may be enjoyed.
