We’d like to introduce the newest member of the Zulu Rock family, Nadia du Preez, who joined us as Lodge Manager on 16 October 2018.

Nadia grew up in Amanzimtoti on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, completing her schooling at Kuswag before studying an Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Management at Varsity College in Westville.

After completing her studies, she worked in various hotels and guest houses, most notably Protea Hotel Umfolozi, Babanango Valley Lodge and Leopard Mountain Game Lodge.

Nadia was seemingly born for the hospitality industry, such is her passion for working with people.

“I just love creating memorable experiences for people, whether that be a great holiday or a great individual experience,” says Nadia. “I love this job – there are always new people that you meet from different walks of life.”

Nadia strives to create ‘wow’ experiences for her guests – something she puts a great deal of time and thought into planning. And she has a lot to work within Zululand and at Zulu Rock:

“The view at Zulu Rock is incredible – it’s ideally placed and offers a dream view of Africa. The people here are also fantastic – no matter where you go in Zululand you are always greeted with enthusiasm, smiles and friendliness.”

Nadia is on a mission to continue Zulu Rock’s aim of offering outstanding accommodation and service, and an unforgettable experience complemented by big smiles. We’re so glad to have her on board!
