Fodor's Expert Review Zuka Lodge

Phinda Game Reserve, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

An exclusive, single-use lodge for a family or small group of friends, Zuka (zuka means "sixpence" in Zulu) is a couple of miles from the bigger lodges. Luxuriously furnished thatch cottages overlook a busy water hole, and you'll be looked after by the camp's personal ranger, host, butler, and chef. Children are welcome.
