Zululand Lodge is a privately-owned tented camp on the 800-hectare uKuwela wildlife conservancy on the Elephant Coast in northern KwaZulu Natal. We are close to the town of Hluhluwe and the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. The lodge is built on a slope with breath taking views of the Msinene River valley and surrounding bushveld. The camp offers 9 tastefully decorated en-suite permanent canvas rooms sleeping 18 people. Our elegantly furnished central lodge area allows you to put up your feet and relax in the open-air cushioned lounge. Enjoy tasty home-made meals in the spacious dining room while catching up on the day’s events with fellow guest. Venture upstairs to our viewing deck which offers uninterrupted views, boasting spectacular sunsets to enjoy a sundowner. Our locally guided bush walks give you the opportunity to observe the abundant bird life of the area, and to try and spot some of the free roaming plains game on our reserve. Alternatively, you can take a short drive to one of the nearby Big 5 Game Reserves for a more adventurous experience. The lodge is accessible by sedan car on +/-5km gravel road. We look forward to welcoming you. Siyanamukela eZululand Lodge
The lodge was designed and built from the ground up as an environmentally sustainable project. We have a solar power system with LED lighting throughout camp, and are completely off the grid. Rain water is collected in tanks and used for cleaning, the grounds irrigation and the small waterhole in front of the lodge. Waste water is treated in a double septic tank system and we provide only biodegradable bathroom soaps. The lodge is staffed 90% from the local community and we have an in-house staff training and development program. The conservancy land was originally used for mixed cattle and game farming but is being rehabilitated for wildlife conservation. This ongoing project includes soil erosion control, reintroduction of wildlife species to the area, fence removal and anti-poaching efforts. We are very proud of our resident leopard population and the hippo pods.
Zululand Lodge has an ideal location if you want to explore the region, with easy access on good roads, and plenty of variety in local attractions. The Msinene River is a tributary to the World Heritage site iSimangaliso Wetland Park. The reserve is close to Hluhluwe-iMfolozi, Mkuzi Game Reserves and Lake St Lucia. The closest town is Hluhluwe 20km away while King Shaka international airport (Durban) is only 3 hours south (270km). You can self drive in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi & Mkuzi Game Reserves, or book a guided open vehicle game drive with a local guide. Lake St Lucia offers boat cruises and canoeing excursions while Sodwana Bay (70km) offers scuba diving. There are also a number of local community craft stalls, coffee shops in nearby mDuku or Hluhluwe.
