Phezulu Safari Park ADVERTORIAL

2015-09-22 06:00

PHEZULU has been providing entertainment to the local and foreign tourist industry in the Valley of 1000 Hills for the past 25 years.

This jewel of Durban has humble beginnings - a small Zulu­ village which has been transformed into a world-famous destination.

Phezulu Safari Park is about having unique experiences, creating memories and refreshing souls. While only 35 minutes from Durban you escape totally from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Phezulu Reptile Park

The reptile park has been upgraded and now includes a new exotic­ snake collection and baby alligators to our already elaborate indigenous snake and Nile crocodile collection.

Face your fears by handling a harmless brown house snake, or holding our 40kg Burmese­ Python “Cleo” or if you are rally brave try our fear factor challenge where you can “enjoy” a meal inside one of our crocodile enclosures.

Reptile tours are hourly and there are venomous snake demonstrations and crocodile feeding on weekends and public holidays at 12.30pm.

Phezulu Zulu Village and Dance Show

Our Zulu village has been the mainstay of Phezulu Safari Park and now with an improved show, it is a must-see.

The Gasa family have been entertaining guests for years with their traditional dance shows demonstrating their skill with grace, agility and humour.

The Zulu village tour also teaches you about the culture and traditions of Zulu living. Feel free to visit our Zulu Shield and Spear factory. Zulu village tours and dance shows are at 10am, 11.30am, 2pm and 3.30pm.

Phezulu Game Reserve

Our game park has the friendliest giraffe in the world. Visitors are driven into the Valley of 1000 hills by guides in open 4x4 game vehicles.

You are guaranteed to get up close and personal with wildlife such as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, impala, blesbuck and a variety of beautiful bird species - truly a photographer­’s delight.

Phezulu Boma and Spaza Restaurant

The two restaurants have been upgraded and the new food and coffee menu is now available. The Boma Restaurant appeals to someone looking for a wonderful meal or coffee while enjoying the view.

The Spaza Restaurant has a free children’s play area where children play or visit the reptile park under the safe supervision of our guides.

We also cater for children’s parties.

Phezulu accommodation

The new lodge and three self-contained cottages are becoming a leader in the accommodation industry with their beautiful views over the Valley of 1000 hills. Durban families are discovering an affordable holiday destination on their doorstep.

Phezulu functions

Phezulu offers a wedding venue with a beautiful view or even get married in the game reserve under a massive fig tree with the added bonus of being able to house out-of- town guests within the park. Each package is tailored to suite the bride and groom.

Phezulu also caters for team building, conferences, children’s parties and year-end functions.
