A light refreshing lunch was provided in the...

Had an awesome weekend with friends celebrating a 60th birthday. The food was great and a good variety. We went on a game drive and had a picnic in the park, that was fun. Sad that the animals are fast running out of water. Hopefully we will have rain soon.

Unfortunately all the good bed and breakfasts were fully booked and I found myself in the Protea Hluhluwe Hotel. The hotel is not up to standard on many basic requirements, for example there's no room service. My pillow had multiple brown marks on it. My towel and bathroom mat had holes. I find the dirty pillowcase and towels with holes...

It was the second time for me at this hotel. It is a very good choice in this area and the staff is very friendly and professional. In the evening you can see a show performed by Zulu tribe. Dinner is buffet and very good.

The staff are friendly and the food good. You are close to St Lucia beach and Hluhluwe Game reserve . A central point to come home at night to a good night sleep bed and food. Recharged for the next day .

Was fantastic. In a short space of 3 hours we watched lion hunt an Njala and just miss, then stalk some warthog, walk into a herd of elephant on route to a water hole, rhino having an altercation and buffalo grazing and crossing the road around our vehicle. Definitely recommended for anyone wanting a game / safari experience.
