Directions to PheZulu Safari Park
About 35 km west of Durban, and perfect for a day-trip, lies the world famous Valley of 1000 Hills. A rambling wonderland of endless, mysterious, misty-green peaks and valleys, periodically adorned with clusters of thatched Zulu huts, the Valley of 1000 Hills is a just place to take out from the city life and get a taste of Africa. The area offers a number of attractions and facilities for all ages and interests. But near the top of your list must be PheZulu Safari Park, one of the best known tourist and leisure attractions in the area.
Located between the villages of Bothas Hill and Drummond, on a ridge with magnificent views of the Valley of 1000 Hills, PheZulu Safari Park offers a smorgasbord of cultural and natural history attractions. Very much part of the Valley of 1000 Hills, with its obvious Zulu heritage, perhaps the best place to start your visit to PheZulu is by stepping into the world of the Zulu Kingdom. The Gasa Clan has been welcoming visitors into their traditional beehive-shaped thatched huts for more than thirty years. Have an 'Out of Africa' experience all of your own and view Zulu artefacts, learn about Zulu rituals and beliefs, and view the amazing traditional dances. Performed in traditional dress and delivered with verve and grace, this is an experience not to be missed.
Other major attractions at PheZulu Safari Park are the remarkable collections of crocodiles and snakes. Have an exciting interlude with your children and family and enjoy a tour with an informed guide. Meet our enormous 102 year old Nile crocodile, our 3.2 m long Burmese python, as well as mambas, cobras, puff adders and other dangerous snakes. And after an hour or two of thrills, it might be time for lunch. Take on the 'Fear Factor challenge' at the Croctilian restaurant and enjoy a crocodile steak, or sit back and relax in the boma-styled environment of the Mbizo restaurant, serving barbeques and 'potjie kos' on open fires. After lunch and just right for a leisurely afternoon, PheZulu Safari Park also offers 4 x 4 bush drives which showcase a variety of wildlife, including numerous species of antelope, giraffe, caracal and bush pig. And if you want to stay on, why not consider the self catering cottage hidden away on the edge of the valley?
PheZulu Safari Park also offers school tours and caters for functions. Its curio shop (selling beautiful, hand-crafted Swazi candles) is one of the best known in KwaZulu-Natal. So pay it a visit before you leave! It will supply you with a colourful variety of memorabilia, wonderful reminders of your unique and unforgettable experiences.
