Our experiences

A place of unparalleled adventure. We create bespoke experiences to suit our guests’ requirements - whether it’s a family with young children, a honeymooning couple or a work incentive trip. We can organise everything from the perfect accommodation to private transfers by air or land, adding experiences from an endless range. Choose from the rhino experience, horse riding, private game drives, picnics in the wilderness, and local village visits. 

The Rhino Experience

The ZuluWaters Rhino Experience offers you the opportunity to get close and personal with one of Africa’s most iconic big game animals – the White Rhino. More than just a game drive, this experience aims to familiarise you with these amazing animals, and our dedicated efforts to protect them. By joining us for this experience, your contribution will directly enable us to provide these animals with the 24- hour security surveillance and armed protection they require. A 3-hour guided game drive, interaction with anti-poaching personnel and a light wilderness picnic. This is a family-friendly safari experience.

Private Guided Bush Walk

There’s nothing quite like experiencing the bush on foot with a local armed ranger. Here is the opportunity to see the smaller interesting elements in the bush that you would not see in a game drive vehicle.  Try your hand at animal tracking or let us take you back in history and show you ancient Bushman paintings and where the Zulus sharpened their spears before battle! Walks usually last from 2 to 3 hours.
