About Falaza Game Park & Spa

The Falaza Game Park and Spa is a privately owned getaway that promises excellent facilities, world-class service and unrivalled natural beauty. It is only three hours from Durban and its international airport, and approximately an hour from Richards Bay. This accessibility, as well as the rich abundance of South African fauna and flora, makes for a memorable experience for singles, couples, families or corporate guests.

Falaza offers luxury tented accommodation and is situated near St Lucia (an official World Heritage Site) and Sodwana Bay (home to an array of exquisite corals). In addition, it is within a short drive from the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve. This reserve is popular for its Big Five (Lions, Leopards, Buffaloes, Elephants and Rhinos) as well as its many other intriguing residents that share this natural habitat.

The Falaza Game Park has a private swimming pool in which to rejuvenate during a summer's day. Alternatively, dine or simply relax in the bar, lounge or outdoor boma. Guests are welcome to indulge in some indoor lazing, or to revel in their outdoor experience. Falaza Game Reserve and Spa is about rest, relaxation and savouring the unrivalled beauty of KwaZulu Natal.


The accommodation at Falaza Game Park and Spa comprises tented facilities for a real African feel, despite the luxurious extras that set it apart. There are 15 tents, each accommodating two adults.
Each tent is non-smoking and is equipped with twin beds, an en-suite bathroom (five of the tents have both a shower and a bath, while the remaining 10 have only a shower), dressing room, private deck, fan, hairdryer and tea- and coffee station.


Meals may be enjoyed in the dining room, which is warm and inviting. However, guests may also savour the sumptuous eats in the boma, which is a traditional place of meeting in Africa, or in the conference lapa. These venues allow guests to enjoy their meals in the heart of the African bushveld, under the high black skies that glitter with a myriad stars.

Each of these venues has a private bar and is ideal for functions, including wedding receptions and conferences.


Corporate guests will be very glad to know of the brand new conference facilities available at Falaza. This Conference Centre is modern, stylish and equipped to meet the needs of the most seasoned delegate. Each delegate seat has its own separate Internet access to ensure that delegates do not need to negotiate on the quality of their work or presentations during the course of their launch, seminar, training or teambuilding initiative.


Falaza Game Park and Spa is home to a wide variety of some of Africa's wildest residents. As such, game drives or walks are most rewarding. In fact, this area can be explored in a number of different ways:

  •     Game Drives - trained rangers conduct official game drives in the day and night to allow guests to see the greatest variety of animals during their stay. These rangers will provide fascinating information along the way as well as answer the guests' questions on the plants, birds and wildlife that they spot.
  •     Game Walks - rangers guide guests on fascinating walks through the amazing Falaza sand forests. Walking at an easy pace, guests have the opportunity to touch, smell and see the natural abundance of this area from a new perspective. Walks are conducted in the early morning to allow for the best chance of spotting interesting species, and are easy enough for children or the less fit.
  •     Horseback - experience South Africa from the elevated position atop a responsive and well-trained horse.
  •     Boat - cruise on the Mzinene River early in the morning, or during one of the famous South African sunsets. While sipping on a sundowner, watch the hippos rise slowly from the water or the crocodiles eyeing the boat from the banks. The many bird species that frequent the river are most rewarding for avian enthusiasts.
  •     Rhino Tracking - as one of the Big Five, Rhinos remain one of the country's most impressive and beautiful animals. A trained ranger will take guests on a tracking excursion on foot to find one or more of these elusive animals in its natural habitat.


Guests weary from the buzz of city living and the stresses that accompany everyday life are invited to indulge themselves at the Falaza Spa, where trained therapists are committed to eradicating the strains and pressures of the outside world.

The spa is situated within the heart of the bush, surrounded by the smells and sounds of Africa. Specialised treatments are designed for both men and women. All treatments are preceded by a soothing foot cleanse using a traditional Zulu method called izinyawo, which means "foot gift". This involves a basin of warm water infused with juniper, blue mountain sage and tangerine. After this warm soak and cleanse, feet are dressed with a foot mask that cools and revitalises them.


The Falaza Game Park and Spa is situated on the Elephant Coast of KwaZulu Natal. It shares a border with St Lucia and is within driving distance of Hluhluwe Game Reserve (30 minutes to the Memorial Gate), Durban (three hours), Johannesburg (five hours) and Richards Bay (one hour).
