About Watervale Lodge

Watervale Lodge provides accommodation, outdoor activities and delicious home-cooked meals in a tranquil, secure, and beautiful country setting in Inchanga, halfway between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, close to the N3.

The comfortable en-suite rooms inside the Main Lodge and the outside en-suite rooms, as well as the log cabins with separate ablutions, carry the flavour of Africa, and are located in a quiet and beautiful African setting.

Campers are welcome and can camp in the grassy areas close to the log cabins and ablutions or anywhere else on the 25ha surrounding the Lodge, all of which are securely surrounded by an electric fence.

Wake up in the morning to the sounds of the abundant bird life and take a walk in the grounds where you may be lucky enough to encounter some of the small wildlife at Watervale, such as Oribi and Duiker.

A few Hamerkop families have also made Watervale their home.

Conference Venues: Conference facilities in a relaxing countryside setting for up to 30 delegates.

Most filthy place I've ever seen in my entire life , mudy..worst than a pig sty. Shower looked like it hasn't been used for years, water doesn't drain away on the sink. The only star i would give is a " DISASTER "

The hosts: Niels and Mary were absolutely delightful and made us feel exceptionally welcome.The great breakfast served, was of the highest quality and standard.For these 2 comments 10/10.The cabin itself was as expected,comfortable.But the advert was misleading.We understand that the hosts are in the process of upgrading, but we were shocked to see the facility especially on arrival.Also that the very basic ablution block and kitchen are "outside", would have to get past the dog and monkeys(felt unsafe,uncomfortable).It would be helpful to have more photos available to make a decision.
