Description

Awaken Your Senses on a Safari in South Africa for Seven Days & Six Nights at Either the Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge or the Hemingway Tented Camp for an Animal Watching Safari and Photo Safari (Land Package Only)

Embark on an African safari and prepare yourself for an exhilarating experience, profound and spiritual, the adventure of a lifetime in a land of expansive savannahs, breathtaking landscapes, stunning wildlife, and proud ancestral tribes. Immerse yourself in the romance and mystique of the African wild in the heart of one of the country's richest conservation regions. Seek out the unexpected by day or night with game drives in an open Land Rover, following the footprints of the elephants along ancient riverbeds during guided walks, and enjoying the thrill of close encounters of the wild kind.

The Heritage Safari Lodge & Hemingway Tented Camp was originally built in the 1940s as a hotel, and was a landmark pit-stop for weary travelers between Lourenço Marques and Durban. Acquired in 1996, the gracious building was lovingly restored to its original colonial grandeur, enhanced with new personal bungalow accommodations, and tastefully themed to highlight Zululand's unique cultural development. With buffet-style meals in the restaurants, the wide, welcoming veranda and the pub, also known as the human watering hole, the warm and relaxing atmosphere of the Heritage Safari Lodge is conducive to good times and conviviality. The sparkling pool is always inviting, and you're sure to enjoy browsing the beautifully stocked curio shop for a few authentic African memoirs.

Soak up all you can in this amazing region with an animal watching safari and a photo safari! You can also go on guided walks along game trails, or ride along on game drives in a Land Rover by day or night!
