Welcome to The Zingela Safari and River Company

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 breathtaking scenery. Zingela offers a range of rustic accommodation ranging from furnished Safari tents with starlit showers to thatched en-suite rooms for couples and families.


Wildlife Galore

From the wild boars to the Blue Wildebeest, we are spoilt for choice! View them from one of our game vehicles or as your drive in on our 4x4 route.


Quality time at the camp fire

Zingela is all about relaxation and unwinding. There is no better place to do that than with a G&T around the campfire!
