The Surroundings of Zuma Zuma Game Lodge
From the moment you set foot in the entrance of Zuma Zuma, the luxurious feel of the lodge reaches out and welcomes you – making you immediately aware of the elegance so strongly contrasted with the untouched bush surroundings. The lodge is located in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve, which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park.
Nestled along the banks of a seasonal river, Zuma Zuma’s ten luxurious chalets all command a magnificent view of the watercourse and its surrounding lush vegetation. Each chalet was built with minimum intrusion into the natural environment, and guests can appreciate an almost unbroken view of the river from the comfort of their beds through the glass doors on two sides of the chalet.
Individually decorated with understated luxury in mind, the extra-length king or twin bedded rooms feature beaded artwork made by skilled South African women.
Each of the widely separated chalets has its own private deck area, where guests can relax with a book from the lodge’s small but select library, or simply bask in the sun, keeping an eye open for the shy creatures that inhabit the river banks.
All the chalets have air conditioning, the windows have protective mosquito gauze and large mosquito nets over the beds. The rooms have telephone facilities and internet connectivity.
A bar fridge and a safe are tucked away in reeded cupboards, with a mirrored vanity of beautifully grained indigenous wood counters. The wooden tops are harvested from single slabs of wood, with the curves of the tree providing a sinuous, organic feel.
All rooms have a spacious en suite bathroom, with spa baths and doubled washbasins. A large shower enclosure leads outdoors into a private outdoor shower with a view of river bed.
Large corner windows provide guests with a sense of the outdoors while still inside, and the view from the toilet is unparalleled through a large glass door.
Blinds ensure privacy for the more modest, although the spacing of the chalets makes this unnecessary.
Meals are taken in the massive thatched entertainment area, where the arrangement of the furniture provides a cosy feel. This is enhanced by two large circular fireplaces, which provide a focal point and the ideal location to discuss games sightings on a chilly winter’s night.
The lounge and dining areas overlook the riverbed and a waterhole, lit at night with animal-friendly spotlights. A magnificent bar also gives an uninterrupted view of the waterhole.
Meals can be taken on damask linen under the thatched roof, out of the raised teak deck, or in the boma at night.
The emphasis is on South African cuisine, but special dietary requirements can be catered for. Consultation between the beauty therapist and the chef will provide a menu suitable for the health conscious.
A superb wine cellar holding the best of South Africa ‘s world-renowned wines is found down a spiral staircase that winds down a carved leadwood log.
A large picture window gives the opportunity to sip fine while studying activity at the waterhole
