A good hour from the tar road, Zingela is situated in the heart of wilderness game country.

A romantic riverside bush camp nestled on the banks of the mighty Tugela River, Zingela is a place where you can choose from a wide range of adventure activities or simply relax and absorb the breath taking scenery.

We often get asked for a description of the accommodation and have found it easier to say what it is not than what it is! You will not be staying in a chalet, rondavel or tent. Each en-suite design is unique and has been built in unity with its immediate environment. We have used river stone, reed and canvas as materials. Larney lane is ideal for couples while Hotel & Aloes are more suitable for family groups or friends who know each other.

J. camp is an extension of main camp but has it has its own bush kitchen and dining area. It does double up as a Bed & Breakfast or self-catered camp for those who prefer that option. The recently refurbished House On Hill is the original Zingela farmhouse. Perched on a cliff overlooking the river, it is just down stream from J camp. We use it for both those who want catered accommodation as well as for groups who would prefer to self cater and join the main camp for selected meals. We can comfortably host groups of forty and erect extra tents for larger parties.

DONT attempt the rocky road without a map or high clearance, diff lock or 4×4 vehicle!
