The services of both the field ranger and caretaker are included in the tariff.

The water at Gqoyeni Bush Lodge is temporarily not fit for drinking. Please bring your own drinking water.

Gqoyeni Bush Lodge caters for only one group at a time, up to a maximum of eight persons. So for the period of your stay it becomes your exclusive home in the African bush.

Please note that this bush lodge does not have a perimeter fence and animals may be encountered at any time. Be aware of this, especially when moving about after dark.

Power is from generator for the fans and lighting, while the fridges and stove use gas. The generator is turned off at approx 22h00.

We suggest that you bring a torch for each room. Hyena in the evenings can be intimidating and monkeys scavenging during the day can be a nuisance. Do not feed any of the animals.

Note that all bush camps should only be accessed by 4 x 4, 4 x 2, SUV with high clearance.

***Please note that although the water is suitable for bathing and cooking, it is recommended that one does not drink the water and to buy or bring your own supply.

Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife have decided to implement a ban on visitors bringing firewood into any of their Reserves.
Visitors can still purchase firewood from the curio shop that have been safely sourced from Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer -free areas.

We are only a booking service to secure accommodation at a number of the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife park accommodation venues. We are in no way responsible for the condition of the facilities, which due to severe budgetry cuts from our Provincial Government, has resulted in a lack of general maintenance over the years, with many of the accommodation facilities severely jeopardised and in need of urgent repair or closure. The Park authorities are well aware of this inability to carry out basic necessary maintenance and are endevouring to source the necessary funds which to date have not become available. Far and Wild Safaris has no control over the allocation of units and their condition. Should you choose to visit these venues and subsequently find fault with the accommodation and or service, we are only able to forward your comments to the Park authorities. There is no compensation for this status quo should it not meet your expectation. Please contact ourselves should you require further clarification.
