“We stayed at Zulu Nyala from a charity purchase, not knowing what to expect. But they exceeded our expectations with great customer service, accommodations, food and safari guides.” December 2013


“As with most, we bought this 6 night safari at an auction. It turned into a 15 day trip to S. Africa starting at Durban and the Fairmont Zimbali Resort and ending at the Steenberg Hotel and Winery outside Cape Town. It will be one of the more memorable experiences of my lifetime!” November 2013


“When I attended a gala dinner celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the girl scouts the furthest thing from my mind was ending up on safari in South Africa. But there on the silent auction table sat an opportunity for adventure and somehow my daughter talked me into placing a bid. The result was serendipitous. We had a fantastic time. November 2013”


”We learned about this lodge through a local charity auction. On our visit we met several other guests who also were happy winners of local auctions. If you get a chance to bid on a visit to this place: “Don’t miss the opportunity!” October 2013


“We also bought the trip through a charity fundraiser (my sorority’s alumnae chapter). If you see it offered – buy it!” October 2013


“We got this adventure like most we talked to -through an auction. So glad we did.” September 2013


“If you are reading this after you spent the money at the auction give yourself a pat on the back for being charitable and for making a wise decision!” September 2013
