Lodge Based Trails


The trails are all based in the Zululand Rhino Reserve. Choose from a range of lodges in the reserve each with their own unique attractions. All trails are flexible and can be designed around every group’s different needs. Full day trails with lunch in the bush or half day trails ending with a game drive or sundowners are available.
