Shambala Zulu Camp South Africa

Shambala Zulu Lodge is owned by the same family that has the Saxon Hotel in Johannesburg.

Lodge Zulu Camp

Shambala is a Tibetan word meaning “peace on earth”. The Camp is built in Zulu Style- undaluting thatched huts. Huts that are very specious and comfortable with tall ceilings, and beautiful bathrooms. Attention to detail, down to crisp linen sheets, is delightful. It is a small place – 9 chalets. It welcomes a lot of heads of states and security is top notch. We can helicopter from Johannesburg or take a two and half hour drive up into the Waterberg Mountains- north of Johannesburg. A Malaria free zone, Shambala las 12,000 acres of private game reserve.
I found the staff to be completely warm and welcoming. My butler, Norman, anticipated every wish. I never had to repeat a request. Always there with a smile. The food was outstanding, by chef Tshepo. Probably the most inventive, beautifully presented and just great tasting meals I have ever experienced on Safari. I will dream about his homemade bread. Teamed with his wife, Elizabeth, the manager, the operation of the camp spins like a top.

  1. Dear Cathy,

    Wow. This place is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your trips with all of us. As an armchair tourist I have to say, I love your choices of destinations. Cathy, you are definitely living my dream!

    By the way, it was so nice to see you at your Mom’s house. Also, I haven’t yet been able to restore the dolls that had enormous splits in their heads, or eyes that are broken, But I have been able to bring your Toni back to life a bit. She’s waiting for me to find some period socks to complete her. I will send some photos to you when I can figure out your proper email.

    Cheers and Happy Trails! Linda McMullen DePascale
