About Wildlife at Phezulu Safari Park

The Phezulu Safari Park is all about celebrating the natural abundance of KwaZulu-Natal as well as the cultural and historical diversity of this South African province. This private game reserve is situated in Botha’s Hill, which is in the magnificent Valley of 1 000 Hills, just over 30 minutes’ drive from Durban.

Phezulu conducts scenic game drives every hour to allow visitors many opportunities to see the wildlife and the vegetation that makes this part of the country so beautiful. These drives are conducted in comfortable 4 x 4 vehicles and by an experienced guide that has a love for and insight into Africa, which makes his commentary all the more special.

Those embarking on one of these safari drives should look out for the many bird species, as well as blesbok, impala, wildebeest and giraffe. Of course, there are also other little mammals, insects, and more to spot, in addition to the gorgeous flora. So, keep your eyes open and your camera ready.

The Phezulu Crocodile and Snake Park tours are also fantastic for young and young-at-heart that want to get up close and personal with some really special creatures. Learn about exotic and indigenous reptiles via clued-up guides that ensure visitor safety, without compromising on a really special encounter. Demonstrations with the snakes and the feeding of the crocodiles are always exciting for the visitors, and take place on weekends.

The Phezulu Village offers visitors some great insights into the Gasa Clan. Enjoy a traditional Zulu dance (there are four dance performances every day), get a sneak peek into an authentic Zulu hut, learn about the customs and belief systems of these fascinating folk, and see various artefacts that attest to the Zulu people and culture of old.

The menu here includes popular favourites with a twist. Try a crocodile burger or an ostrich steak to get a real taste of South Africa.

Phezulu Safari Park is open from Monday to Sunday, 08h00 to 16h00. Special packages for tour and school groups are available.
