The Zimbali Lodge lies in a protected nature reserve within the Kwazulu Natal province ~ a short 30 minute drive from Durban. Birds and small antelope roam the surrounding forest while the elegant Zimbali Lodge rests in an untouched green forest with amazing sea views.
The natural surroundings of Classical African architecture are reflected in the warm tones and style of the luxurious rooms. The suites and rooms are situated in a variety of different buildings ~ all with an exclusive balcony. Every detail, including the hand-carved furniture, symbolizes traditional values imbued with sophistication and style. Even the bathrooms embody an old-world indulgence when time did not matter, with hand-molded wash basins, free-standing Victorian baths and gloriously fashioned fittings. Each air-conditioned, en-suite, balconied room also enjoys dedicated and personal butler service.
Revel in cuisine that celebrates authentic table d'hote in the Zimbali Lodge's intimate colonial-style restaurant, or relax on the terrace with a superb vista to complement al fresco dishes. Guests enjoying high tea in the Colonial Lounge are served in the grand manner by butlers. And the elevated bar, overlooking the 14th fairway, is ideal for sundowners and delicious light meals in the balmy sub-tropical air.
