Zululand Tree Lodge Activities:
Game viewing in open game viewing vehicles is usually reserved for the early mornings and late afternoons when the animals become more active after sheltering in the shade of the bush during the heat of the day.
Those looking to get really close to nature can embark on foot with a trained game ranger to see the wonders of the African bush close up. The foot safaris are ideal for all and give guests the opportunity of truly experiencing the African bush.
children 16 years and under are not allowed on Game Walks.

Great staff-friendly and helpful Delicious food Comfortable room Lots of thought and little extras added Just unfortunate that you can hear the traffic. From safari lodge and see rural areas instead of bush But had a great time Also very nice for little ones
The accommodation was lovely, however, the evening meals were extremely poor with certain meat dishes so tough they could not be eaten. The game ranger was the worst I've had in at least 20 such trips to various game lodges. For the price paid I consider the stay to have been relatively poor value for money and was sorry that overseas guests had to experience this. Rooms have single ply toilet paper and there was no butter on the tables - only margarine.
Will be excellent once the upgrade has happened but otherwise a really super break. Staff are so happy and friendly and accommodating, animals right at our chalet window... More than met expectations.
We had a great time at the Tree Lodge. Staff was very friendly and gave us everything we asked for. A minor problem was solved by the manager without an unhappy face. Thanks and see you next year?

See hippos and crocodiles at the adjoining World Heritage site of Lake St Lucia, explore the 4000ha Bonamanzi Game Park or view the Big Five at Hluhluwe-Imfolozi. Excellent for photography, game watching and bird viewing.

Thunder over the Lebombo Mountains. The cry of a Fish Eagle high overhead. The songs of Loeries, Bullfrogs and wind in the Fever Trees - the sound of Africa calling you.
