Self-Serve Savings -- The best budget option -- ideal for families or small groups -- is to hire a self-catering unit within the reserve from eZemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife. I particularly recommend Bhangazi Bush Lodge, an eight-sleeper private lodge with a private cook and deck overlooking Lake Bhangazi; it's an easy 10-minute drive to the ocean at Cape Vidal.
