Zululand Tree Lodge: Hluhluwe

Yes, Joseph, we stayed there in November 1999, and it was great. We paid about that same price, but had to pay extra for lunch. It isn't super luxurious, only luxurious. The guides are really good, very knowledgeable. You'll see rhinos so close you won't be able to believe it.

The accommodations were beautiful,the food was good, the pool was nice, but they were building a pond while we were there and the construction stuff was kind of an eyesore. We just looked the other way though. We found the ambiance, furnishings, decor, just delightful. There's a big fever tree forest in the reserve, and the dining area (not a room, it's sort of outdoors, but covered) has a restful view of the fireplace and fever trees. The evening game drive is especially nice. You'll see why when you get there.

We too thought the price was low and asked why; the staff said it was because it had recently changed hands and the new parent corporation wanted to set the price low to attract business. Personally, I suspect they are trying to attract European and South African rather than American clients, and so are not pricing themselves up with Phinda etc.

Gosh, thinking about it is making me away-sick!
