We were staying at the Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge and stop in to check it out. The pricing on the products were 30% cheaper and we had lunch at the cafe. The food was good.

Quaint little attraction just outside Hluhluwe that has unique souvenirs and trinkets from the area. The Fig Tree Cafe was also very good and a great place to grab a bite to eat.

Ilala Weavers is a place that sells African handcrafted goodies, e.g. baskets, bowls, jewellery and much much more. Worth a visit if you looking for African curios for yourself or as a gift.
