What is luxury? Unfortunately too often a contrived and empty experience whether it be bath butlers, water sommeliers, pillow menus and “wellness” centres or items embossed with intertwined C’s and G’s. ZuluWaters is the definition of luxury – tranquillity, space and the ability to hear the crackle of the fire, the thunder of the wildebeest charging or the snort of the buffalo. All of which enhanced by the excellent food that Mbongiseni served, the great service from the housekeepers and our all-seeing rangers – Mbuyiseni and Joe. A week passed all too quickly and the desire to return will not go away.

A life-changing experience for me! You have a very special place here. The food and service were great. The trackers were wonderful (and patient). All of the staff are great. I hope to return some day. We so enjoyed the Midlands Meander – thank you Lesley. The super-moon in the winter night sky, the visit to the Dalton Education Trust centre and the wide open spaces, dotted with animals – very special – thanks so much!

~ Micah and Shauna Stolowitz – Portland, Oregon, USA

What an amazing adventure – Hemingway would have been envious of our fine time here. We spent our time in awe of the landscape, the sunrise and the sunset. The accommodation was first class – the meals, the service and the personal attention. Thank you so much for making our dreams come true. We will forever remember ZuluWaters!

~ Ron David, Nick Saleem, Atif Malik – USA

To all the fabulous staff at ZuluWaters… Thank you for making our stay such an amazing one. We loved every minute of it. And thank you particularly to Mbongiseni for the extra 50kg I will be taking back home with me!! Hope to see you all again very soon. 100%, why not, yebo!!

~ Sandi and Simon – United Kingdom

To the greatest team of people in KZN! There is a special kind of magic here, a special kind of peace. All of us thank all of you for a weekend we’ll always remember.

~ Don, Sue, Reece and Lea – Cape Town, South Africa

Thank you very much, we had a wonderful stay here. Mbongiseni is a great cook and has a great personality. Joey the game drive tour guide is the best. This has been the best second stay here and we will cherish the moment. “Enkosi siya bolela”

11 days filled with so much to see, feel, smell, love, eat, listen. An extraordinary life here in an ideal utopia. I’m not looking forward to leaving the perimeter …. A dream come true! We will take this experience with us in our hearts and are so looking forward to coming back here. Maria and I love ZuluWaters!!

~ Anthony and Maria Horth – New York/Sydney

We have had two very special days at ZuluWaters. A great location with a lot of hospitality. Thank you Mbongiseni for the great meals and Joe for the game drives. We will never forget this place! All the best for everyone at ZuluWaters!

We are very lucky to have had such an opportunity. We had an incredible experience and were welcomed from the start. It is a beautiful place but it is the staff that have made this so memorable. Thank you for everything and we wish you good luck for your future here.

Time went by too fast! We enjoyed every precious moment. We feel lucky to have learned so much from everyone and for the lifetime of memories.

These past few days were really a dream come true holiday at ZuluWaters…..a real reserve…really beautiful setting…really great care by the staff….enjoyed every minute of the game drive, the horse trails and the warm Jacuzzi under the starry African sky! Mbongiseni and Nombuso were real stars! The food was really great. Lesley and Joe you made the experience spectacular! We love this place!

The ZuluWaters team (Anton, Lesley and the rest of the folks) – thank you for a truly fantastic escape! Every little detail of the weekend has been very impressive. The food has been simply remarkable and of course the hospitality has been second to none. Look forward to the next time. Kind regards

~ Jeffrey Moodie and Paige du Toit, South Africa

To the amazing staff at ZuluWaters! Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Fantastic staff, accommodation, food, game viewing (everything). It is so encouraging to see that rehabilitation is possible. Well done and thanks again for a special weekend.

~ From the Edwards party, South Africa

Zulu Waters (formerly Dalton Private Reserve; a name change, not a management change) was one of, if that the, most stunning places we’ve stayed in the world. The main house is remarkable in its ability to be modern, yet warm, and striking, but not at odds with the landscape. The staff is the second best part. They’re so kind, and knowledgeable, and seem to exist simply to make your stay a pleasure, especially Anton. If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to have a gigantic (8,000 + acres!) game reserve all to yourself, then Zulu Waters is the retreat for you.

~ Lucas and Katherine Taratus, USA

Peace and tranquillity- ZuluWaters is the perfect place for anyone seeking quiet and privacy. We spent three days at the beautiful Lake Cottage doing little other than reading, walking and looking at the magnificent views. It is a little piece of paradise.

~ Joanna Stanley, South Africa

To the brilliant ZuluWaters team! Thank you for the most amazing stay – this has surpassed all our expectations and the three boys have changed in front of our eyes. Not sure about getting a warthog as a pet though! The team, the food, the animals, the views, the escapism – all brilliant and a huge thank you from us all.

~ The Allards, UK

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you. The accommodations, food and African ambience exceeded our expectations. Leaving here is like leaving home and family. Thank you very much.

~ The Reeb family, USA

What a fantastic retreat and respite from the English Winter. Having only sampled the fishing in a small portion of the river and a couple of lakes out of season and high waters, I can honestly say it is some of the finest waters I have encountered and will certainly be back. Thank you so much to Joe, Anton, Susan, Mbongiseni and the rest of the team for an unforgettable stay.

~ Christopher Charles Clemes, UK

We have three wonderful days in the Reserve and we met great people. The food was absolutely wonderful and the company as well. It has been a great experience that we will never forget and that we will talk about. That is a place that we will recommend to everybody. Thanks for everything.

~ Ciao Allessandro and Federika, Italy
