Zulu Nyala, South Africa
Zulu Nyala is located on the rolling hills of Zululand on the Eastern Cape, situated southeast of Swaziland about 150 kilometers inland from the coast of the Indian Ocean. (GPS: -27.90078, 32.2723) They have a couple of luxury lodges and a tented safari camp, but don't let the term, "tented", give you the wrong idea. These are really permanent structures; luxury huts with canvas roofs.
The ranger guides have a lot of experience tracking the animals and we had plenty of opportunities to get up-close and personal with the animals, as you can probably see from these photos. The game drives seem to cater to photographers since they try to schedule the drives around sunrise and sunset during the "golden hours". Since the light at these times isn't always sufficient for many point and shoot cameras and even some SLRs with kit lenses, capturing photos of wildlife could be challenging. I used a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom with vibration reduction for most of the animal shots.
