Situated a mere four kilometers from Hluhluwe Town, and on the access road to Hluhluwe-uMfolozi National Park, Ubizane Wildlife Reserve is an invaluable location for any tourist to experience wildlife while travelling in the surrounding area. The reserve is centrally situated two and a half hour’s drive from Durban’s King Shaka airport, 10 minutes from the Memorial Gate entrance into the Hluhluwe/uMfolozi Park, 45 minutes to St. Lucia and about an hour to the Mkuze Game Reserve. The property showcases two uniquely diverse accommodation establishments, Zululand Tree Lodge, a Luxury Lodge dramatically set high up on stilts between the Fever Trees, and Zululand Safari Lodge, stretched out across rolling lawns under Acacia Canopies, which is a delightful family-friendly self-catering lodge, ideal for breakaways from urban life with the family.
Ubizane Zululand Tree Lodge
Mysteriously hidden in the treetops on stilts in the cool, whispering tranquility of the fever tree forest is where you will find this lodge. The heart of this lodge has a magnificent guest area, a restaurant with a view of giant fever trees, views of passing wildlife and lit up at night to create a dramatic effect. The swimming pool and bar looks onto the beautiful fishpond and there is a watering hole which is visited daily by families of warthogs and nyala. With paved pathways leading to twenty four luxuriously appointed thatched roofed rooms facing the fever trees, and each room having its own personal viewing deck, guests can observe the surrounding wilderness in private seclusion. Each room has an enchanting view of the forest from the bedroom through large glass sliding doors, to ensure that guests are always able to view the splendor outside and is fitted with an en-suite bathroom with shower, dressing room, coffee/tea making facilities, bar fridge, mosquito nets, ceiling fan and private viewing deck.
Delicious Pan African cuisine is served at dinner time with the accompanying sounds of the reserve’s nightlife and the spectacular views. Mealtimes at Tree Lodge are served at different venues, either the Tree Lodge Restaurant with its beautiful wooden finishes or the rustic Boma, or sometimes their Bush dinner site.
