ZuluWaters Game Reserve in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands provides unique, customized outdoor tours for those who seek a bit of extravagance while away from hectic city life. There is a great assortment of experiences on offer throughout the year which makes this the perfect destination to choose any time of the year. The activities provided at this premium Game Reserve (initially recognized as the Dalton Private Reserve) include game watching, white water rafting, horse riding, helicopter trips and much more.
This reserve stretches over 7000 acres and is situated near Estcourt, about a two-hour drive from Durban and roughly a one-hour flight from the town of Johannesburg. This is ideal for those who would like to organize a personal flight from OR Tambo International Airport. Accommodation choices at this leading lodge in South Africa are world class. Besides the main lodge, there are two self-catering chalets, each with their own distinctive character and charm. The main lodge has incredible views across the valley, giving guests the chance to view the wilderness from the convenience of the external deck.
This beautiful wildlife reserve has more than 80 buffalo, wildebeest, zebra as well as a varied range of antelope. While there is a game watching vehicle for transportation around the reserve, the more stunning choice is to view the game on horseback. The topography on the estate varies from flat grassland to jagged hills, ensuring an adventurous ride. One of the luxury accommodation units includes the provision of a private chef who will produce a range of appetizing meals throughout the day. Many of the ingredients used are grown at ZuluWaters.
In the months of summer, when the river is gushing at its highest, white water rafting down the famous Bushman’s River is a memorable trip. There is a superb range of running rapids and flat areas of water that encourage a memorable sightseeing experience. The white water rafting encases about 10kms of river. The level of water drops somewhat in the winter month’s which is superb for trout fishing. Renowned as a top-notch bush lodge in South Africa, ZuluWaters Game Reserve boasts three accommodation choices, each of which has its own exclusive character—Shaka Lodge, Nandi house and the Lake Cottage.
Known for its serene, modern and indigenous layout, Shaka Lodge in South Africa offers an artistic and luxurious retreat to guests.
