An Authentic African Wildlife Experience

Rooted in Purpose

A wilderness area which is a tapestry embodying the Zulu nation and spirit. It is here that you walk in the footsteps of military genius, King Shaka Zulu, and visionary conservationist, Dr Ian Player. In the early 1800s, the region was King Shaka Zulu’s sacred hunting ground, teeming with game. Later, in the early 1950s, Dr Ian Player launched ‘Operation Rhino’ here,  saving the Southern White Rhino from the brink of extinction. His work continues today in a monumental effort to protect this critically endangered species.

“These lands fostered the rise of the Zulu nation,
They are home to a unique combination
of Zulu history, culture, and wilderness,
that is found nowhere else in Africa.”

“These lands fostered the rise of the Zulu nation, They are home to a unique combination of Zulu history, culture, and wilderness, that is found nowhere else in Africa.”

These chiefs, of Shaka’s lineage, have a progressive vision for the area. Forming a coalition, they are consolidating their tribal lands to form the mFulaWozi Wilderness, part of the greater iMfolozi node.

Working to secure benefits for their communities into the future, the leaders’ conservation vision will increase the capacity of the established Hluhluwe and iMfolozi Wildlife Reserves. Wildlife will thrive as species within the node will be able to reproduce in a much larger protected area, and migration corridors across old borders will be opened up. These amakosi have allowed conservation to prevail – as this is their legacy.

The mFulaWozi lodges are built to honour these visionaries. Each lodge is a reflection of the clan who built it. The lodges have a unique structure but share a common purpose.

The symbolism in the clan name is strong, significant, and highly relevant. Where the Black and White iMfolozi Rivers converge, the reeds make a particular sound in the wind. In Zulu tradition, this sound is called mFulaWozi.

mFulaWozi is committed to training and employing people from the local communities, creating, not just another tourist destination, but a supporting structure, or backbone for whole communities.
It is a wild and beautiful place which is owned and proudly preserved by the people who call it home.

mFulaWozi embraces the future-thinking of these tribal chiefs. mFulaWozi is unique, it is special.

Nestled in the hillside, Biyela Lodge is perfectly positioned to take in sweeping views of the lush flood plains of the White iMfolozi below.

Offering twelve luxury standalone suits, ten of which have private plunge pools, the lodge is an oasis of privacy and eco-luxury.

Built stone-by-stone by the Biyela clan, this lodge is in perfect harmony with the surrounding wilderness.

Cool interiors reflect the rich shades of green found in the foliage outside; and the selection of artwork, furniture and materials is inspired by a contemporary plant-based apothecary theme.

Rate includes all meals, local drinks & game drives.
