Come to experience Africa with us.

Zebras Crossing was started 21 years ago by German born Alice Zucchi who passed away in 2015. Her son York Zucchi owns it and continues to run it with his wife Tamar and lodge manager Promise Khumalo. Promise started working at the lodge 20 years ago as a bricklayer and today owns 20% of the lodge. The lodge started as a place where Alice could welcome her visiting Italian, German and Swiss friends where they could completely relax before going on to their Big 5 Safari.

Zebras Crossing is perfect for guests passionate about nature. Start your day at leisure or rise before the African sun and enjoy a sunrise hike to Alice’s viewing spot.

No Big 5 to allow guests to walk freely but for those guests seeking Big 5 there are numerous nearby day excursions available.

Exceptional bird life and abundant wildlife (zebras, meerkats, giraffes, kudus, nyalas, impalas, etc).  Zebras and Meerkats come right up to our guests. Giraffes come up to 15m from guests.

Swimming pool, conference house, lapa, sun-downer spot and bush bed are amongst the many little relaxation treasures you will find at the lodge.

*Daily game drives with sundowners.


Meerkats relaxing on the terrace, zebras that steal your heart when you sit around the breakfast table. Giraffes that stare at you while you relax by the pool. Nyalas and other antelopes that graze in front of you while you sit in the comfy couches catching up on your books. Staff that is attentive yet unobtrusive. An entire bush reserve that is waiting for you to enjoy it at your own pace with a guided or alone walks among the animals and free Wi-Fi to share the magic on social media.
