Tusk Umfolozi Casino

Tusk Umfolozi Casino – Empangeni, Zululand

Tusk Umfolozi Casino is a colourful tribute to the proud traditions of the Zulu nation for all to enjoy. Visitors are greeted by a towering water feature with liquid gushing out of a tumble of Zulu earthenware pots and cascading onto a bed of polished river pebbles.


Behind, an impressive staircase rises to the porte cochere supported by pillars seemingly clad in never-ending coils of rope. From here, there is a view over the tropical garden created out of an industrial wasteland, lush with tall green palms and vegetation of every cooling shade of green that nature can muster.
