Your journey begins in the most extraordinary setting you could imagine. Combining the best experiences of a private safari lodge with the charm of the camp, your journey will be unique and unforgettable. Zulu Camp is built in traditional honey combed Zulu style with streams from the nearby river running through the camp. Your adventure begins as you stand on the deck overlooking the river that is home to many animal species. The sound of birdcalls echo across the water, and in the late afternoon you might hear the plaintive call of the fish eagle as the hippos return to wallow in the river.
In Africa we love telling stories of our experiences and sharing our knowledge of the African bush, of adventures and unforgettable animal encounters, our customs and our heritage. We are passionate about Africa and we share that passion with our guests. When you embark on an African safari you will soon discover that it is a life-changing adventure where our story becomes a part of your own.
