Phezulu Safari Park, Botha’s Hill, Valley of 1000 Hills, Central Kwa-Zulu Natal.

An exciting tourist venue in Botha’s Hill, 35-km from Central Durban.  Magnificent views of the Valley of 1000 Hills.  The Gaza clan has allowed visitors to savour the taste and feel the rhythm of Africa for 30 years.  Visitors are taken into traditional beehive huts where the various artefacts, beliefs and rituals are explained.  The Zulu dancing is impressive, with dancers in their traditional clothing show off their skills with grace, agility and humour.  Shop that caters specially for children. Animal farm section and jungle gyms.  A few buck and zebra have been introduced, as well as a reptile park boasting the oldest (nearly 100 years old) and largest (4.5 meters) crocodile in captivity (Junior) as well as a number of indigenous snakes. The curio shop offers an outstanding collection of crafts from all over southern Africa. The views from the wooden sundeck are stunning.  Two restaurants – the “Croc Pot” and “Mbizo” a traditional boma-style restaurant serving braais and potjie-kos.  Trips in an open 4x4 into the Valley of 1000 Hills. Meet the Zulu in their homes and experience contemporary rural Africa at its best.  A peaceful campsite overlooks the Valley as well as a stone and thatch self-catering cottage that sleeps up to five.

Botha’s Hill is on the N3 northwest of Durban, which is at the intersection of the N2 with the N3.
