About ZenZulu Lodge

ZenZulu, in the heart of Zululandís Elephant Coast, South Africa, is a safari destination like no other. Itís an easy 3 hour drive from Durban. We offer remarkable game-viewing, rich biodiversity, comfortable, spacious accommodation, all within a quiet atmosphere which encourages the keen observation of nature for the benefit of personal reflection and inspiration.


The Lodge itself sits in a Fever tree forest, beside a dam which ensures that you will be in the thick of a wildlife experience even when sitting quietly with your morning coffee on the deck. Our plunge pool means that the crocs are not the only ones with a license to stay cool during the summer.

Our camp is small and exclusive. There are 3 en-suite double bedroom units. In additional there are 2 beds in the main lodge building with full bathroom for overflow.

Bedrooms are en-suite with aircon. And there is a second shower outdoors in a private, screened garden courtyard for those guests wishing to bath under the African sky.

Our dedicated staff which includes a top class ranger, housekeeper and assistant ranger, will ensure that your party is well looked after.

The emphasis at ZenZulu is on privacy Ö your party of up to 8 people will have exclusive use of this secluded lodge, its staff and facilities. There is a minimum booking of 4 people.

We have a unique tree house at one of the dams. Brave souls who want to experience a night under the stars at the top of a Tambooti tree may do so subject to pre-arrangement and suitable weather.


Three meals are provided daily.

Zululand Rhino Reserve

We are a member of the 22,000 hectare Big 5 Zululand Rhino Reserve. Currently, we traverse are area of approximately 2000 hectares of the Mkuze West portion of this reserve. Rhino are especially plentiful and you will see Nyala, Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Duiker, Impala, Warthog, Kudu, Reedbuck, and Buffalo. Leopard and Caracal are common to the area but elusive. Our camp is unfenced from the wild and Nyala, Impala and Warthog are frequently seen walking within our complex.

A neighboring lodge offers an ďElephant ExperienceĒ which allows you to meet two of the reserve's approachable elephants. This program has an additional charge and must be pre-booked.

Verified reviewexcellent

WOW - what an amazing, relaxing, all round fantastic 3 days at ZenZulu. Anthony and Amanda, our most gracious hosts, were very professional and even planned with the animals to make appearances! LOL - We were VERY lucky to see the big 5 in abundance, wild dogs (from a distance) and 2 baby cheetah eating from a fresh kill. The lodge was very relaxing. The rooms were very comfortable and private. My family and I definitely recommend a stay here.

Verified reviewexcellent

We had a lovely stay at this excellent self-catering lodge. The Lodge itself is beautifull, luxurious and very tastefully decorated. The Rino Conservation area is beautifull, clearly not as "wild" as Tanzania or Zambia, but with sufficient game around. We spotted the first lions who had been set free last September (there are even more now, we have heard), saw cheetah, cane rat, nyala's, hippo's ( including a single one in the small lake next to the lodge) and lots of birds. The housekeeping service was good, the rangers who accompanied us from the surrounding lodges were excellent and at our disposal whenever we wanted to go for a drive. We like the self catering part , as this not only helps to make the place truly affordable, but also helps you to stop from overeating on all the catered meals you otherwise are provided with plus gives you more privacy.
