Text Nicky Manson WHERE: ZuluWaters Game Reserve, KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, 036-352-0100, zuluwatersgamereserve.com WHY WE LOVE IT: This spectacular game reserve, nestled in the middle of the rolling hills of KwaZulu-Natal, offers views of the (sometimes snowcapped) Drakensburg range, dramatic sunsets and wildlife. Nandi House is one of two self-catering properties on the reserve. This elegantly designed two-bedroomed house has its own deck and private garden. You’ll find it easy to while away the hours from your own prime viewing spot as wildlife graze nearby. Take a guided walk, play tennis, horse ride or jump on your private game vehicle for further sightings. X-FACTOR: Richard Stretton of Koop Design designed the architecture and fittings, so it’s no wonder that the space – a combination of wood, glass and metal – is sexy and sophisticated.
