About Umzimkulu River Lodge

 Sleeps 29
Check-in: 2:00 PM
Check-out: 10:30 AM

Our peaceful valley resort, which is 22 km out of Underberg, provides the perfect location for a retreat from city life. Here’s your chance to rest, listen to the river and the sounds of nature or spend some wholesome outdoor time with your family.

Families love it for the unhurried, Old World country atmosphere with days spent picnicking under the huge Oaks on the river island, boulder hopping in Thrombosis Gorge or just hanging about in boats. Honeymooners revel in the privacy of a luxurious suite and private deck just meters from the river bank. Fishermen love it for the unrivalled opportunities to catch rainbow trout along our 2.5 km stretch of river. To make sure you have a relaxing break, we have babysitters on hand to offer you solitude or an opportunity to enjoy a meal without having to mop up any spillages. Umzimkulu River Lodge has recently been awarded 3 Star grading in the self-catering category.

All our fully-equipped, self-catering units are situated just meters from the river bank with stunning views. All the units, except the log cabin, are equipped with log fires. All units have individual braai facilities. In winter a complimentary bundle of firewood is supplied on arrival and additional firewood is available to purchase thereafter. The units are serviced once daily in the mornings, excluding Sundays and Public Holidays. Should you require additional assistance, we can arrange to have a housekeeper available at an additional fee of R 15 per hour.

Activities at the lodge include bass and trout fishing, swimming, boating, tubing, canoeing, walking and birding. We have an a la carte breakfast and lunch menu and a set two-course dinner menu available. Meals are served in the dining room or on the deck overlooking the river. Come and experience restoration of body and soul in truly lovely surroundings.

We also have a restaurant and full-board bookings are available.
