Pictures do not do Jozini Tiger Lodge justice. This Elephant Coast gem in KwaZulu-Natal is the epitome of an authentic African holiday.
Here you find unparallel views of Jozini Lake and its dam with a range of activities to keep your days at the lodge exciting. Just four hours from Durban, this 4-star hotel is the perfect place for those who want to unwind or gather a few friends for a mini break.
When we arrive, the staff are at the entrance with broad smiles. “Sanibona Zivakashi” Mavis, the front office manager, greets me as I enter the foyer. It is a Zulu word meaning welcome visitor.
She offers me a refreshing lemonade that provides respite from the blazing weather. After an effortless check-in (it was done in under three minutes), Griffin, one of the interns, escorts our group to our respective rooms.
The lodge boasts 44 classic rooms, 21 family lofts, 3 deluxe rooms and 2 executive suites. My classic room was spacious and easy to navigate.
The room is kitted with a kingsize bed, a desk and a gorgeous balcony that overlooks the lake. The bathroom has a shower and bathtub for those who prefer a soak after a long day of exploring.
