Loved this intimate lodge. The staff are amazing, the facilities are perfect and nothing can beat watching a family of rhinos whilst enjoying an outdoor shower. As vegans, meal time can be tricky, but Umzolozolo catered to our every need so I highly recommend anyone who is vegan to book and stay here. A special place indeed.

We stayed for two nights at the lodge; we were not lucky with the weather but nevertheless had a very enjoyable stay. The facilities and staff were excellent. We were made to feel very welcome and the whole feel was of individual attention.The game drives are an essential part of the stay and the ranger taking us out was really good, he was very knowledgeable and because we had wet conditions the drives were great fun. I would certainly recommend Umzolozolo Lodge.
