The Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge is a magnificent private lodge surrounded by a privately-owned game reserve that is home to over forty different animal species as well as hundreds of birds and indigenous plants. The package includes six nights in a luxurious air-conditioned “en suite” room at the Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge, meals, and two-hour morning and afternoon open vehicle safaris.
Qualified guides and rangers (with a maximum of 10 guests per ranger) will point out elephants, rhinos, buffalo, cheetahs, and leopards plus smaller bush animals such as warthogs, mongoose, genets, porcupines, and monkeys. The package does not include airfare but the highly professional Zulu Nyala team is available to assist the winners with travel arrangements. The Zulu Nyala team will also work with the winner to tailor-make a trip that suits the winner’s interests. There are over 40 different excursions and activities from which to choose.
