This gallery contains scenery and wildlife at Zulu Nyala Lodge and Game Reserve in South Africa.
Zulu Nyala is located on the rolling hills of Zululand on the Eastern Cape, situated southeast of Swaziland about 150 kilometers inland from the coast of the Indian Ocean. (GPS: -27.90078, 32.2723) They have a couple of luxury lodges and a tented safari camp, but don't let the term, "tented", give you the wrong idea. These are really permanent structures; luxury huts with canvas roofs. The game drives seem to cater to photographers since they try to schedule the drives around sunrise and sunset during the golden hours. Since the light at these times isn't always sufficient for many point and shoot cameras and even some SLRs with kit lenses, capturing photos of wildlife could be challenging. The ranger guides have a lot of experience tracking the animals and we had plenty of opportunities to get up-close and personal with the animals, as you can probably see from these photos.

I hate using watermarks on my photos, but the photos on this site are not free. Without the watermarks, some people would use these images without paying for a license. Making these photos took time, equipment and money—it's not cheap or easy to go to some of these places. Please respect my copyrights as a photographer and purchase a personal-use license if you use them personally, or a commercial-use license if you use them for business. Purchased photos will not have the tiled watermarks across the image, but will have a small unobtrusive printmark in the lower right corner. Thank you.
