Tucked away in the magnificent Mfule River Valley, in the sheltering embrace of a high cliff, lies Simunye. Here, one can experience the fascinating cross-cultural influences that have emerged since Zulu and Western culture first interacted, back in the pioneer days. On arrival at the old trading store, GUESTS park their cars in a guarded security area. After receiving a short overview of the history of the area, they proceed either by horse, ox-wagon, donkey cart, on foot (or by 4x4 on request) on a 1-hour trail accompanied by a guide. Feel the pulse of yesteryear as you journey to the secluded lodge at sunset. After sundowners and dinner, sit spellbound round the fire as Zulu legends unfold and the rhythmic drumbeat of Africa fills the night. Soak in your very own steaming rock bath and drift off to sleep in stone-walled rooms to the tranquil sounds of Zululand. Journey with us in the footsteps of early pioneers, visit old ruins that speak from the past and be part of the vibrant culture that lives unto this day. Simunye is a Zulu lodge that offers adventure and relaxation away from it all. Different cultures come together in an atmosphere of yesterday. Hotel Conferencing Because we have imitated the swallows and eagles and built the conference centre into the cliff itself, nature has done the rest by creating an ambience which is both primal and timeless. Due to its natural beauty, Simunye is a declared Natural Heritage Site and Conservation area. There are a wide variety of breakaway areas ranging from thatched wooden decks set into the tree tops with the river below, to secluded waterfalls and a comfortably appointed cave in the cliff face.
