A half-hour drive from Durban, nestled in the Valley of a 1000 Hills, PheZulu Safari Park offers a uniquely African experience.

The world-famous Gasa clan has over the last 30 years allowed visitors to PheZulu the opportunity to savour the taste and feel the rhythm of Africa. Visitors are taken into traditional beehive shaped thatched huts, where the various artefacts, beliefs and rituals are explained, giving foreigners an insight into the fascinating Zulu culture. The Zulu dancing show is impressive with the dancers in their traditional garb, showing off their skills with grace, agility and humour – a truly unforgettable experience.

PheZulu also offers a Crocodile and Snake park where guests will be taken on a tour by knowledgeable guides. They will learn interesting facts about crocodiles and snakes, as well as meet Ramesis, the park’s 90-year-old Nile crocodile, and have a hands-on experience with Cleo, a Burmese python weighing in at 42 kilograms.

Situated in the middle of the Valley of 1000 Hills, PheZulu boasts outstanding views and has one of the best curio shops in Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as a Swazi candle shop with beautifully sculptured hand-made candles.

Phezulu also offers a one-hour scenic game drive, during which one can see wildebeest, impala, blesbok, zebra and giraffe and will also be taught about medicinal plants in the area as well as experience the amazing views.

The PheZulu Safari Park tour for Sri Lankan media was organised by Durban West CTO Julia Cullinan with 1,000 Hills CTO Bradley.
