Emdoneni Lodge prides itself on actively welcoming children of all ages. Kids activities are well planned and structured and are done by experienced guides who are passionate about kids and nature.

The lodge offers unique opportunities for the visitor, as you get up close and personal with local wildlife. From sitting by the pool watching Zebra, Nyala, Duiker and Impala in their natural Sand Forest habitat, to coming face to face with Cheetah, Serval, Caracal and African Wild Cats at the Cat Sanctuary! Air-conditioned, en-suite rooms allow you to escape the heat of the day, and in the evenings you have a variety of meals to choose from at the buffet restaurant.

Dinner in the Boma adds a different atmosphere as you eat under the African night sky, and get a glimpse into one of South Africa's great cultures with our Zulu dancers. End of your evening with a night-cap in our cosy bar or a chat in front of the fireplace. Your Zululand experience would not be complete without visiting nearby Hluhluwe/iMfolozi Game Park in one of the Lodges game vehicles, or taking a trip to St Lucia to view some Hippos and Crocodiles on a lazy afternoon boat ride. Other activities on offer include Fishing charters, visiting the nearby Zulu cultural village, quad biking, horse riding or spending the day on the infamous Cape Vidal and Sodwana Bay beaches.

Emdoneni Lodge offers the visitor a chance to experience Zululand at its best. Your hosts, Louis and Cecillie Nel, look forward to meeting you, from all the staff at Emdoneni - Salani Kahle.
