Description

A rustic yet sophisticated safari lodge, Zintulo Safari Lodge

offers wrap around views of the spectacular lower lying areas of the Nambiti Conservancy. Zintulo Safari Lodge is set apart due to its dramatic and spectacular location.

Zintulo Private Safari Lodge, nestles within the Nambiti Big 5 Game Conservancy, and is situated in the Northern KwaZulu Natal Region.

Resting in the outer lying foothills of the mighty Drakensberg Mountains, Zintulo overlooks the gentle rolling hills and floodplains which possessively hide and protect the life giving Sundays River, which flows through the conservancy.

Guests can look forward to exciting game-drives in open 4 x 4 safari vehicles led by experienced rangers. Offering you the opportunity to experience the abundant South African wildlife including Africa’s Big Five (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo) not forgetting the exquisite variety of bird life found in the region.

With literally hundreds of historical sites scattered around the nearby country side, makes Zintulo the Historians ideal getaway to experience the historic Battlefields of both the Anglo – Boer and the Zulu – Boer wars, which form part of our Countries fusion of History and Culture.

After a busy day in the warm African sunshine, we welcome you back to Zintulo Safari Lodge and let you sit back, to relax and enjoy the clear fresh air and brilliant star studded nights, while our local Zulu and South African staff show you hospitality in true warm South African fashion.

Dinning becomes an experience all on its own. From a star studded Boma (outdoor dining area) evening to breakfast on the deck or at the waterfall to elegant candlelit romantic dinners. We at Zintulo Safari Lodge are renowned for our flexibility and for our wonderful bush banqueting surprises.
