Manager was so helpful, sorting out our accommodation issue and making sure we were comfortable. Lovely place to stay and wonderful experiences on site

Great views and on site activities were the highlights of our stay.On the negative side, the unit was never serviced during our 3 night stay. Management were not present during the weekend and staff seemingly saw the gap. The kitchen was not particularly well appointed, there were limited cutlery and no stove for cooking.

The rooms are well-appointed, with a HUGE king-size bed in one room. Very nice to have a bathroom for each of the two bedrooms. Kitchen was clean and well-equipped. The staff was friendly and accom...

The guided tour of the reptile park was realy interesting, the guide Thandeka knew what she was talking about, and could answer all our questions. She made it a very memorable experience.

Phezulu Safari Park is a well kept establishment with friendly services assistance. Just wish we had a decoder in our rooms but apart from that it was great.
