People who are not from South Africa sometimes get the impression that every South African keeps a leopard named “Sipho” as a pet, and rides a black rhino to work. However, the truth is most people in South Africa have never actually seen a leopard or a rhino. This Groupon gives you and a partner the perfect opportunity to do just that with a 2 night stay at Zulu Nyala Game Lodge.
Set atop a hill with magnificent panoramic views, Zulu Nyala Game Lodge is where luxury and Zululand ethnic heritage converge to provide a tranquil and leisurely experience. Two nights’ stay will give you and your partner access to all the game you have seen in movies and magazines combined. When not leopard spotting in the bush, why not play a round of tennis, take a dip in the sparkling swimming pool or indulge in a pampering treatment at the spa?
Nestled between the Mkuze, Hluhluwe and St Lucia reserves, Zulu Nyala offers that peaceful fall-asleep-to-the-sound-of-crickets atmosphere. Leave the alarm clocks at home and be awoken by the sound of animal roars and buffallo gallops. The moment you step outside your room you will experience a scene straight out of The Lion King. After this once in a lifetime experience, return to your room and spend a few hours on the deck taking in the tranquil surrounds or simply savour some of the delicious African cuisine on offer. At the end of every day, relax in the game lounge and discuss just how the leopard got its spots.
Wild fact: There are no game in the Vatican City but every year they have the “Selvaggina Selvatica Evento” which is where everyone dresses up as their favourite game animal for a day. There is a prize for the most unusual costume. Last year someone made their entire lion costume out of toilet brushes. He didn’t win.
